Save camera overlay image with photo

Has anyone figured out how to use the camera image overlay, but have the overlay image saved as a part of the photo, saved in the gallery?

Example, having a logo in the lower corner on top of any photos shot.

  • Jim, did you ever get this figured out? I'm up against the same thing.

  • You can try hiding all other screen elements and just taking a screenshot. Really big hack, obvi.

            var image = event.media;

    • One of the problems with this – and with trying to save the overlay in general – is you are effectively reducing the resolution of the camera from 5 mega-pixel (1936x2592) to the screen resolution.

    • I tried to take a screenshot of the camera, and the screenshot itself was successfully taken. Except that the image from the camera is not shown. Instead I get a black screen for it. (I get everything else shown in the window)

      I tried extactly your code, and different methods too. which all worked fine and take a screenshot but with out the camera screen itself.

      my understanding is that screenshots are suppose to take a screenshot of anything "visible" in the window including the camera.
      any ideas why it won't appear?
