Prevent selfie flipping not compatible with Android 9.0 (Pie) on Google Pixel (1/2/XL)
There is a bug in Android 9.0 which Google has acknowledged and has promised to fix in the future
GCam Tool automatically moves photos taken with Google Camera to any folder you want, even memory card. It can prevent flipping of selfies so that the front camera photo is saved just like how you see it in the preview.
It also automatically moves portrait photos taken with Google Camera, to the correct gallery location. Here’s how it works:
When you take a portrait photo (with DSLR like blurred background) with Google Camera, it takes the photo in burst mode – one regular photo and one blurred photo. These photos are saved in a new folder (created every time you take a photo) inside your photo gallery.
GCam Tool simply moves the photos you want (regular, portrait or both) to the location you choose and deletes the rest.
✔ Prevent flipping of front camera photos
✔ Choose which photos you want to move
✔ Select custom source and destination folders
✔ Batch move multiple files
✔ Rotate selfies further for Xiaomi phones
✔ Option to delete the sub folder created by Google Camera

Frequently Asked Questions
Prevent front camera flipping is not working
After you take a front camera photo, please check it in a third party gallery app like QuickPic or Piktures. The gallery in Google Camera is sometimes slow to refresh the flipped image. But in reality the image must be flipped correctly.
Photos are not moved even though the options are enabled
This could again be a case of the gallery in Google Camera app not refreshing photos correctly. After you take a selfie, please check it in a third party File manager (Solid Explorer, ES File Explorer) or gallery (QuickPic, Piktures). They must be moved.
Ok I checked with third party gallery and can confirm it is still not moving
Some modded Google Camera apps save portrait photos in DCIM/Camera itself instead of creating a subfolder inside DCIM/Camera. Open Google Camera, find Settings -> Advanced -> Save all portrait mode pictures to same folder and disable it.
I need to save only portrait photo (background blurred bokeh). What setting should I choose?
In Settings, under “Portrait Photos”, please enable “Move portrait photos to target folder” while disabling “Move normal photos to target folder”. Now only the background blurred photo will moved to target folder while the normal one will be deleted.
What’s the deal with Motion Photos?
It is a proprietary format developed by Google where a video is embedded inside a photo. There shouldn’t be any issues with moving motion photos to target folder but if you enable “prevent flipping of motion photos”, such motion photos will be converted to regular JPEG files and will, as a result, lose the embedded video.
No problem. Please mail me at [email protected] I love working with my users to fix their issues.
