I'm using QField all day and one things kept bothering me: I am unable to delete a picture I take within the app.

When I'm doing cartography, I like to take pictures so that I have a visual memory of the places I've been to. I prepare my QField column to take photos (apart from other options) as:

  • Text, 255 length, Widget type: attachment, relative path.

Taking the pictures works fine, but sometimes I take a blurry picture by accident or I - for whatever reason - want to delete a picture I've taken.

How do I do this? I don't see a delete button anywhere...

It should be simple, right?

I'm using the latest version of Qfield

  • I had the same problem and I haven't found a way to delete a picture. However, if you uncheck the box "«hyperlink» on the attachment widget" You will be able to see the picture in qfield and take a new one in its place. qfield.org/docs/it/prepare/attributes-form.html
