Maybe it wasn't clear in my original post. I'm planning on doing the import using the Photos app. Then some initial culling of images. Then I want a script to backup any new images to external media. @cvp's post shows me how to get the images, which is great. But currently Pythonista can't write to the external media? I would have to use iOS "Share" to copy them from Pythonista's sandbox to the external media?
Experienced Python developer here, but new to Pythonista and toolkits on iOS.
I'm looking for (or to write) a script that will backup the Photo Library to removable SD cards.
Going on a trip soon and I'm trying to avoid taking my laptop and it's accessories. I can load photos from my camera's memory card into the iOS Photo Library (camera roll). But then backing them up to some other media is really kinda painful. I can connect an SD card or USB HDD to the iPad, but saving the images requires manually selecting images and then exporting them. I'd like to automate that task.
I haven't found a script that does exactly that, or even a close approximation. Anyone have anything I can start with?
