I wish to be able to take multiple photos with touching the phone or talking to it or smiling at it I want it to take photos after setting it, until I stop it

Can tasker be my answer and do this somehow?

Would be great if someone could assist me with this

Thanks in advance

You can create a task that takes a picture, waits however long you want them loops back using a "go to" action to take a picture again. Putting an if statement to check a variable (maybe "takePhoto") in the "go to" action and execute the "go to" only if the "takePhoto" variable is true.

I would have a profile that calls this task if that "takePhoto" variable is true.

To start the process of taking pictures, use a Tasker shortcut/widget to call a task that sets the "takePhoto" variable to true. The next time that Tasker shortcut/widget is run, clear the "takePhoto" variable which will stop the task that is actually taking photos. You can toggle the "takePhoto" variable using logic like:

A1: If [ %takePhoto ~ true ]

A2: Variable Clear [
Name:%takePhoto
Pattern Matching: Off
Local Variables Only: Off

A3: Else

A4: Variable Set [
Name:%takePhoto
To: true
Recurse Variables: Off
Do Maths: Off
Append: Off
Max Rounding Digits:0

A5: End If

I could, but I'm not interested in writing other people's tasks for them . There are apps in the play store that won't require Tasker.

If you post your current attempt (see the sticky post in this forum for help with that), I'd be happy to help you troubleshoot or tweak.
