    I like this Tasker project. But I can't get it to save the picture directly to my DCIM folder instead to my SD card. Is there a way to do this?

    In the first action of APOD Wallpaper task:
    A1: Variable Set [ Name:%APODDIR To:/storage/emulated/0/apod.jpg Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    change directory to:
    Name:%APODDIR To:/path_to_your_folder/apod.jpg
    for DCIM folder:
    Name:%APODDIR To:/storage/emulated/0/DCIM/apod.jpg

    Note that apod.jpg is every day overwritten by new image. That's why in the notofication is the button to save it with pick file action if you want to save it in different directory.

    Tip: If you want to save the picture every day automatically, change in above task the file name from apod.jpg to apod_%DATE.jpg.

    It only runs once a day....
    So it downloads a wallpaper and applies it. Then the next day it does it again but overwrites the first.
    It is LITERALLY naming the file apod_%DATE.jpg

    OK. I have this setup already in my task and it's working perfect. I can't belive that bulit in Tasker variable (%DATE) is not returned on your device. Could be that you mistyped % with ℅... Check it out please. Mistyping is the only reason I can see here. Otherwise I can't help you.

    @szmerek is your task working? I downloaded your task a long time ago and it was working very well. But since 3 days it doesn't set the wallpaper. No matter what I try. Can you eventually help me?

    @R4V3N_2010 I noticed it as well. It seems that NASA started redirecting the API images URL (http) to the secure connection URL (https), without changeing URLs in the API. Tasker HTTP Get action can not handle it.
    In fact the only difference between the API URL and redirected URL is "s" on the http end, the rest of URL is the same. You can search-replace "http" with "https" but this is not the way it should be done.

    I've already updated the project with the following. Image URL received from API is validated against URL redirection. If API image URL is redirected - the response page header is searched for new (location) image URL. If it's not redirected %url stays like it was before, as URL received from the API output.

    @R4V3N_2010 I'm not going to update the project with yesterday's image as lockscreen wallpaper. There is already the project with this feature.
    Please find below what to do. After the last action of APOD Wallpaper task add this:

    A29: Variable Set [ Name:%apoddiryesterday To:/storage/emulated/0/apodyesterday.jpg Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    A30: AutoTools Time [ Configuration:
    ---------Add Time---------
    Use Now: true
    Add Unit: Days
    Add Value: -1
    Output Format: yyyy-MM-dd Timeout (Seconds):30 ]
    A31: Copy here action A2. In API configuration > Autput > Fileds to Get: leave only Url and Hdurl, the rest thick off. In Output > Date of the Image to Retrieve set %atcalculateddate
    A32 to A42 - Copy actions A7 to A17
    A43: HTTP Get [ Serverp:port:%url Path: Attributes: Cookies: User Agent: Timeout:60 Mime Type:image/* Output File:%apoddiryesterday Trust Any Certificate:Off ]
    A44: Set Wallpaper [ Type:Lockscreen Image:%apoddiryesterday Scale:On Crop:On ]
    A45: End If

    Hope this will work for you :)

    Thanks it works but I get today's image as lockscreen wallpaper. Maybe I did something wrong. But I checked it a couple times and it seems that I did it like you told me. Do you have any suggestions?

    Check:
    A44: Set Wallpaper [ Type:Lockscreen Image:%apoddiryesterday Scale:On Crop:On ]
    if you have here type lockscreen instead of launcher.
