PHPRunner General questions

I'm currently working with PHPrunner for a room inspection and maintenance app, which utilizes a 4G connection on Android tablets.

The inspectors often traverse large buildings with intermittent reception, leading to problems with bandwidth and connection stability.

The main issue arises when taking a picture directly from the File/Image control in PHPrunner using the tablet's camera.
The process of uploading images, typically over 2MB in size, is not only time-consuming but also susceptible to transmission interruptions due to the lengthy duration required.

Is there a method to capture the image via PHPrunner, save it to the tablet's LOCAL file system, and then sync that folder in the background with Google Drive?
(The syncing could possibly be done with the Google Drive app or a similar app like GoodSync.)

I hope someone can help.

P.S. I've tried adjusting the image size on the Android tablet's settings, but this doesn't seem to work well for this application.
P.S.2 I considered resizing the image before uploading as a potential solution, but the HTML5 solutions I've found online, among others, are too complex for a low-coder like me.
