The following Python code save a image on the Desktop every 5 seconds Once the fifth picture is taken, the preview closes.

The variable i counts how many times the loop has run, from 0 to 4. Therefore, the images get saved as image0.jpg, image1.jpg, and so on.

from picamera import PiCamera
from time import sleep

camera = PiCamera()

for i in range(5):
    camera.capture('/home/pi/Desktop/image%s.jpg' % i)

it is saved on the desktop as follow
