I'm having trouble figuring out what part of the Ubuntu phone SDK I should use to make a publicly viewable folder on Ubuntu Touch. It seems that there is an apparmor profile that would allow me to make the files and folders, but it is marked reserved.

This is what I want to accomplish

1. person takes a picture in HelioGraph
2. the original picture is stored in ~/HelioGraph/Original on button press.
3. The edited version is stored in ~/HelioGraph/Edits after save.

I've read through most of the available documentation on the ContentHub but if the above can be accomplished that way. I must be missing something.

Ah good to know I was unaware of how MTP worked.
I was under the impression that using the reserved apparmor profiles are a big no no, I don't want to diminish distribution possibilities I'll keep it working the way it does, I already have an cache cleaning function to get rid of old images. Thanks for input everyone I'm glad I didn't miss the obvious this time.

I've decided to make Sept 20th HelioGraph's BIG day in the sun, that is to say I want to hit 2.0 and be released on all of my target platforms. I appreciate all the people that have downloaded and made the network better by posting on it. So to you all, and to anyone else that joins the community. What do you think needs to be added for a good general market adoption. Yes, Wayne more filters are coming I promise.

Here is the proposed feature set for 2.0:
(check) signifies that it already does it.

Posting and Retrieving public images (check)
Responsive camera capture with filters (check) [need more filters though]
Ability to set "Rating" of the picture for images (check) [please read rules about posting images in the EULA]
Ability to set Maximum Rating of images you want to see. (check)
Ability to Comment,Like Images (check)
Ability to Change Screen Name (check)
Ability to Connect Patreon / Flattr account to images that you share (check)
Ability to use #<servicename> #<account on service> to link users to some external services (CHECK) [great for bands, artist,etc]
Ability to search via #hashtags or by Screen name (Check)
Ability to Follow Users (Check)
Ability to Share images to people outside of HelioGraph (check)

Ability to Share private images with others in HelioGraph
Ability to set a PIN to override your maximum rating [for privately shared images]
Ability to share entire Libraries with other members [for families]
Ability to build web view collages from images with #hashtags.
More web Share Features
Desktop Client for Ubuntu [maybe others]

HUGE update, with another probably coming tomorrow. Needed to get my current users on the new effects system so I can dump the old code :)

In this version I've added network agnostic sharing. Check the change log.

Change log for HelioGraph 1.6


Indirect changes:

Upgraded server to 16.04,
Doubled Hard-drive space, Ram, and CPUs
This increases my monthly costs, but the performance increase was necessary.

Program Updates:
Added visual feedback to the comments section, tap where it says comments too read messages left by users.
Added a new menu Item
Liked: Shows only images you have liked ( this only pulls from your local information at the moment)

Added notifications to Menus: Stream and Library will now show a small star when the client needs to sync with the server.

Share Button now does something! (Visual update to come in next update)

Share: Share within HelioGraph, (Shared with me menu item is coming soon)
Web Link: After wasting so much time trying to integrate sending to Facebook,G+,et.al I took a step back and added a URL generator to the program. Tapping on the link will copy it to your clipboard. Simply paste it where you want it,and you're done. (Tested on Facebook,G+)

BIGGEST CHANGE!!!
Effects system has been rewritten after the realization that I couldn't achieve the desired results on all platforms AND the new web gallery (Still working on it). The good news is that even on low end phones taking a pictures is instantaneous, the bad news is that all pictures with filters in previous versions won't show up on the web gallery with rotation or effects applied. It also means that I had to change the aspect ratio of the captured images. So going forward if you hold your phone Horizontal it will have a 6:9ish aspect if it is Vertical it will have a 4:4 aspect.

This gives me a great opportunity to jazz up the Preview area within the program so when you tap on an image it will do much more than show you a slightly larger (sometimes) version of the same image.

Next Update:

Next update will be visual improvements to the Preview area as well as the Share menu. More tweaks to the interface where things feel clunky or unintuitive. Maybe more filters now that it has been fixed.
