The photos panel offers a carousel for you to view all of the photos you’ve taken with your FarmBot, as well as controls and settings for taking photos, deleting photos, calibrating the camera, measuring soil height, and performing weed detection.

Photos in the carousel are displayed in reverse chronological order, so the most recent photo you’ve taken always shows up first.

To take a photo, press the take photo button. Once FarmBot takes the photo, it will upload it to the web app along with the coordinates of where the photo was taken, as well as the date and time.

Once you have taken multiple photos, use the and buttons to navigate through your images. At the bottom of the carousel are additional icon buttons:
