How to Export Pictures

 I'm sure there is a simple answer to this, but I can't seem to figure it out.  When adding photos to a project how do you export them with the .shp file?

Hi Jan,

SHP file format can't contain the photos. Anyway, exported SHP file contains column 'lg_attachment' with relative path to the images. The image files are stored in LocusGIS/projects/your_project/attachments. So you can manually pair the images with the SHPfile features. Anyway this process is quite tricky. For this reason we created the export to QGIS that enable to display data with the attachments directly in QGIS app. Please see https://help.locusgis.com/en/support/solutions/articles/47000380954-export-project-to-qgis


Thanks, Petr
