Upload picture directly from camera to cloud folder

For security purposes I cannot locally store pictures taken on my mobile device. Can the own-cloud android app currently be configured to save the images taken by the camera directly to a cloud folder with no local storage?

You can take the picture from within the ownCloud Android app. This has been implemented in 2.7:

Thank you for getting back to me. I should have explained this better. I am aware that the app can take pictures. I would like to know whether the images taken within the app are stored in any local cache on the device at any point. I need the pictures taken in the app to be saved in the cloud with nothing stored on the phone. Is this the case?

No, this isn’t the case. I tested with Pixel 3 simulator. A locally cached copy is kept in the Android app, and I think also a copy remains in a system folder. ( content://com.android.providers.media.documents/document/image%3A11 )

What is the real-world problem you’re trying to solve? Could you elaborate on your use case?
