I already uninstalled the apps/tweaks I had from cydia before I noticed this. But while taking pictures of my fiance and our new puppy, the pictures would show as a thumbnail after taking them, but once I went to click on them, there are no where to be found.
Also, all my previous photos in my photo roll are now blurry. I have over 8gb of memory free on my device.
EDIT: After connecting to ifunbox, I find all my old pictures in var>mobile>dcim>100apple and they have the correct resolutions, but none of the ones I have taken since have saved.
EDIT: Another edit. under DCIM I have two folders, .MISC and 100APPLE, all the new photos I had taken are in the .MISC folder under a sub folder called "incoming"
I know it won't be hard to get the pictures where I want them, but how do I get them to save to the correct place?

That depends...this happened immediately after you uninstalled things from Cydia or you just noticed it then and it could've happened prior? There's definitely no way for an iDevice (by default) to redirect photos anywhere else besides the camera roll that I'm aware of.
Have you tried a hard reset?

Hi, use iFile, click on the photos blue arrow and press add to camera roll

I have since moved the photos from the .misc incoming folder to my camera roll folder but they still won't show up on my phone.

So this behavior is intermittent. Did you end up trying a hard reset?
I can't think of anything else besides maybe running iCleaner would help and restoring.

Hi, moving photos to the Camera Roll folder won't work, you have to import them with a utility like iFiles "Add to Camera Roll" button or with App Store app DC Copy etc.

the OP's phone is not saving newly taken photos directly to the camera roll. He is not asking how to move or import existing photos.
