When you say you’ve “taken” a lot of pictures in onenote. I’m assuming you are using the onenote app on your phone and creating a note using the camera icon to take a photo. If not, let me know.
I don’t really use OneNote – but I played with it a little on my Samsung phone and here’s what I found:
- when you take a picture in a note, it is stored within that note. It doesn’t seem to exist separately. It’s not stored in any device folder on my phone
- If I open the note and tap the photo, I am prompted to “Open with” I choose Google Photos and I am just viewing the photo using Google Photos. Now I can tap the share icon and choose upload to Google Photos.
If you need to save a lot of photos this way, that’s quite a bit of work. It seems to me there should be a setting to change to allow photos taken with OneNote to be saved to your camera roll. That’s how it works on the iPhone, but I can’t find such a setting on the Android OneNote.
Let me know if this helps and we’ll go from there.
