I took the example tutorial from https://inducesmile.com/android/android-camera2-api-example-tutorial/ and have been working at making my own changes to it in an effort to familiarise myself with Android development.

The first thing I di  was to change the file name of the image I created from "pic.jpg" to "PIN_<yyyyMMdd>_<HHmmss>.jpg". I then changed the directory images get saved to to DCIM/Camera/AndroidCameraApi/.

My issue now is that the images get saved in the correct folder but are not visible in the gallery app unless I restart my phone.

Here's what I've done:

I had read somewhere online that I need the sendBroadcast to force a reindex of the AndroidCameraApi folder but it doesn't seem to be working. Perhaps I've done something wrong in here.

Do I need to put something into the manifest relating to ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE or have I made a mistake with some other aspect of it?
