    My app is saving images to File.DirDocuments. I just realized that these are not showing up in the Photos app on the phone, so there is no way for the user to clean them up. How do I make my images visible to the photo app?

    Thanks. Since we are adding a bitmap, and not a path, if the user deletes the image from Photos, does it delete from the last saved path?

    The lack of a file system view app (that I can find) doesn't make this clear to me. It would seem that it would not, as the photo can be added to the photo album before it is even saved. Perhaps I should not save the file to file.dirdocuments?

    No. There is no relation between the original file and the album image.
