I am trying to set up a layout with the atlas-function in QGIS. I am using also the INPUT-mobile App. With the app it is possible to take pictures. I want these pictures to be displayed using the atlas-function. For INPUT to do make the fotos work, you have to set up the Widget type = Attachment. Also one has to use relative paths. In Integrated Document Viewer section the type is set to Image.

Now when I take a pic INPUT automatically writes in the attribute table and it looks like this:

INPUT Picture

To use the atlas function i have already discovered, that i can select the fotos from the attribute table. However, since there is not a complete path, it does not display the foto correctly. Now I am looking for a solution to fix this. enter image description here

I thought the best way would be to store the atlas shape file in the same folder with the pictures and then create a path from the file directory somehow combining the information with the Foto file name.

How can I create this path or do you have a better, more convenient idea?

I found out how to create an row that includes the directory of the fotos. '/mypath/myfolder'||tostring("Foto1"). Now it creates a new row from which i can hopefully link my pictures. Anyhow if someone has a better solution / Less of a work-around type it is very welcome!
