ImagePicker.launchCameraAsync problem in SDK 28

After moving from SDK 27 I’m having an issue with launchCameraAsync as it returns a “content://” uri rather than a “file://” uri as before.

I’m trying to create an asset out of this but I’m not able to find any information on how to do this, old way doesn’t work as apparently it can’t be called on “content://” uris.

Any help is appreciated :).

Oops! We changed the behavior not to save the taken image to device gallery and it caused it, need a fix! Sorry for that. To go round this you can use FileSystem.copyAsync and make a copy of this file and the asset from the copy

I threw together a library called expo-asset-utils that can handle this use case. It uses FileSystem.copyAsync under the hood when it finds the suffix.

const asset = await AssetUtils.resolveAsync(theUri); // Returns a Expo.Asset
const localUri = await AssetUtils.uriAsync(theUri); // Returns a uri with file://

@victorwads I think your issue might not be related to this thread, can you post a separate one and describe the issue in detail
