How to access your Photo Booth photos in iOS 8.1 using the Seagate Media app

Once you have iOS 8.1 installed on your device the Seagate Media App will no longer have access to all your Photo Booth photos. This is because Photo Booth is outside of Camera Roll. The Seagate Media App does have access to Camera Roll, but those are only photos and videos taken with the normal Camera. If you want to access any photos taken in Photo Booth you will need to create a custom album with your media. The Seagate Media App will have access to this custom album. Note: Make sure that you give the Seagate Media App access to your photos. To do this navigate to Settings > Privacy > Photos, make sure that access is granted for the Seagate Media App.

 

Please follow the steps below to create a custom album of your Photo Booth photos:

 
  1. Navigate to Photos on your iOS device.
