This example opens the photogallery and then when you select a file from it , it will be copied to your resources directory.
First manually create a directory in your resources, here the directory is named “mydirectory”.
Call this functiion inside a button click or something

var directory = "mydirectory"
		var cropRect = event.cropRect;
		var image =;
		var mime_type = image.mimeType;  	// Getting the file type.....
		var arr = Array();
		arr = mime_type.split('/');
		var image_type = arr[1];
		if(event.mediaType == Ti.Media.MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO)
			var image_name = "My_img""."+arr[1];;
			var filename = Titanium.Filesystem.resourcesDirectory +  directory + image_name;
			var bgImage = Titanium.Filesystem.getFile(filename);
			bgImage.write(image);                  	//write the image binary to new image file.
	{' Cancelled ');		},
	{' An error occurred!! ');	 	},

Now after running this code check the directory you have created.

If you want to delete the image use this

var file = Titanium.Filesystem.getFile(Titanium.Filesystem.resourcesDirectory+"/"+directory +"/"+My_img.png);

Note: Change it to appropriate file extension.

If you want to list all the files inside the directory use this code…

var my_dir = Titanium.Filesystem.getFile(Titanium.Filesystem.resourcesDirectory+"/"+directory+"/");
		var files = my_dir.getDirectoryListing().toString();'directoryListing = ' + files);
		var files_array = Array();
		files_array = gal_files.split(',');
		var num_of_files = files_array.length;

If you want to delete a directory Use this

	var my_dir= Titanium.Filesystem.getFile(Titanium.Filesystem.resourcesDirectory+"/"+directory+"/");
				var files = gal_dir.getDirectoryListing().toString();
				var files_array = Array();
				files_array = gal_files1.split(',');
				var num_of_files = gal_files_array1.length;

				for(var j = 0; j < num_of_files ; j++){
					var file1 = Titanium.Filesystem.getFile(Titanium.Filesystem.resourcesDirectory+"/"+directory+"/"+files_array[j]);

    Snippet 1 not working for me.

    Titanium SDK = 2.1.1
    Host OS = Mac OS X 10.6.8
