I am working on an app that displays photos which are downloaded from Flickr. I obtain a Bitmap object from a byte array, which in turn is read from the relevant Flickr URL, as follows: Bitmap bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray(data, 0, data.length); The problem is that the resulting bitmap is pixelated and I can't figure out why. To demonstrate, here is an example of a picture created via BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray versus the original picture obtained directly from the relevant Flickr URL:...
I'm using the Camera.PreviewCallback.onPreviewFrame to try to generate a bitmap from the byte array passed to that method. If I use BitmapFactory.decodByteArray it returns null. I'm assuming that the array is correctly formatted since the data just comes right from the camera, so what could the problem be?
In my application I am converting base64 string to image.For that I initially converted base 64 file to byte array and later am trying to convert to images. To convert to Images I am using the below code
I have a very large image and I only want to display a section the size of the display (no scaling), and the section should just be the center of the image. Because the image is very large I cannot read the entire image into memory and then crop it. This is what I have so far but it will give OutOfMemory for large images. Also I don't think inSampleSize applies because I want to crop the image, not lower the resolution.
Uri data = getIntent().getData(); Input Stream is = getContentResolver().openInputStream(data); Bitmap bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(is, null, null);
I am 1) taking a picture and 2) then draw another Bitmap on top of it 3) then I store it
I am doing it as follows and it works on the emulator.
On the device I get a OutOfMemoryError: bitmap size exceeds VM budget android.graphics.Bitmap.nativeCopy(Native Method) android.graphics.Bitmap.copy(Bitmap.java:199) in the line copy the Bitmap to get a mutable Bitmap.
What I am asking:
a) Is there a better way to do what I am doing? 1) take a picture 2) draw another Bitmap on top of it 3) then I store it
b) What is the best way to create a mutable Bitmap from the picture I just took with the camera?
In my app, resolution is not an issue. If it works better for small photos that would be fine.
My goal is the draw a bitmap onto another bitmap but rotated 90 degress. whats the most efficient way to do that. My current method is as follows which is horribly bad because it creates a new bitmap every time.
I want to draw a shape(many circles particularly) into a Specific Bitmap. I have never used canvas / 2D graphs etc. As i see it i create a Drawable put the bitmap in it then "canvas-it" to the shapes i want etc.
basically what i'm attempting to do is place several images into 1 zip file, and then read the images back out of the zip file, and draw them onto a canvas using BitmapFactory. This is what my code looks like, but when i debug i only get a source not found error.
I have an activity which performs an image search, the results (URLs of thumbnails on the web) are rendered in a GridView. My GridView adapter class delegates creating the actual Bitmaps to an AsyncTask that loops to sequentially fetch the image content from each URL using HTTPClient, and creates the Bitmaps using:
I found that the above method sometimes returns "null" silently instead of creating a Bitmap. The occurrences appear to correlate with larger stream sizes (I check this by logging entity.getContentLength()). However, if I put a breakpoint just prior to the decodeStream call & then resume immediately every time I hit it (i.e. pause briefly on each iteration), the Bitmaps are created perfectly every time. All the images are quite small (most <10K), so the download & decodeStream happens fairly quickly. There are never more than 10 images processed in one AsyncTask.
I can't wait to try out the new 1.6 goodies, but first I'm retargeting my existing applications, and I decided to start with Daisy Garden. Changing to android:targetSdkVersion="4" caused the application to segfault on startup and discovered that the BitmapFactory.decodeResource method now performs scaling based on screen density. In this case the behaviour is unwanted - I'm loading a set of masks that are scaled later during composition. So I've quickly inserted the following method, which seems to perfectly mimic the previous behaviour:
I was reading in some other posts that some developers have the same Problem, but till now, no solution. its about the gallery: I have a string array with photos, but when the gallery does show the 2nd Picture it crash with:...............
I've been reading about performance issues decoding Bitmaps and have received the OutOfMemoryError "Bitmap exceeds VM budget" issue when I would expect to not be out of memory and read online that this is a common problem referred to as a bug in the framework by many devs. Typically, I get the error mentioned above on my second pass. Let's say I load a somewhat sizable Bitmap successfully and then recycle it and even set the ref to null. When I call this same method a second time that does the work of loading my Bitmap(s) into memory...
I've read on previous posts here and elsewhere online that there are a few things that can be done with BitmapFactory.Options (for instance, providing an input buffer explicitly). But, before proceeding blindly in using what I've found, I'm hoping someone with more knowledge of these classes can shed a little more light...........
Our Android app does a lot of image decoding. We fetch a lot of images from the internet, local storage caches, etc. Up to now, these images are being decoded on the UI thread (using BitmapFactory.decodeX() methods). It's been causing some timeout crashes because the UI doesn't respond quickly enough to user input.
I could write a little AsyncTask that encapsulates decoding, but I'm not sure that's a good idea. Spawning threads is expensive, and that would be spawning and tearing down a ton of them. So what's the best way to put this on another thread? Do I need to go to the extent of writing a Service? That seems a little heavy-weight. Are there any solutions for this already out there?
why when I load images from files using BitmapFactory.decodeFile and passing in a BitmapFactory.Options with inPurgeable set to true, I still get OutOfMemoryError? For example, doing the following many times, with lots of different resources works fine:
In reality my code isn't as simple as outlined above. What I'm really trying to do is load a couple of bitmap resources draw them on a bitmap backed canvas, and then write this new bitmap to file, just so it can then be finally re-read into memory with the inPurgeable option set to true (using BitmapFactory.decodeFile).
I am tring to get a image from the images stored on the sdcard of my Android but i am getting a skia error using BitmapFactory When I just take the image directly without using BitmapFactory class I get the image. But the purpose of using BitmapFactory is scaling down the image size by using inSample =4;
I'm downsampling an image via BitmapFactory.decode then base64 encoding the bytes to ship to the server. (long story on the latter part of that formula) It seems this process nukes all Exif data in the image data. Am I approaching this the wrong way or is this a fact of life?
I'm having issues with BitmapFactory.decodeStream(inputStream). When using it without options, it will return an image. But when I use it with options as in .decodeStream(inputStream, null, options) it never returns Bitmaps. What I'm trying to do is to downsample a Bitmap before I actually load it to save memory. I've read some good guides, but none using .decodeStream.........................
I learned from several discussions of this group that BitmapFactory.decodeFile() allocates heap memory outside of the "java heap". My app receives encrypted files from a remote server. Decoding those files needs a lot of heap space. After finishing this decoding step most of the allocated heap space will be freed by the GC. But the (total) heap size - as displayed by the DDM - remains large. In this situation there is not enough heap space outside of the "Java heap" to decode even medium sized image files using BitmapFactory.decodeFile(). At the moment I limit the size of encrypted files to ensure that the Java heap space never increases to more than 10 MB. This ensures that there is enough memory for BitmapFactory.decodeFile(). But this is not very elegant.
Is it possible to tell the dalvik-vm to reduce the (total) heap size to have more space for decoding images or is there another solution?
The last line gives a null pointer exception, why is BitmapFactory.decodeFile returning null? I can verify that the file is getting saved correctly as I can pull it using adb and see the png displaying properly.
Some of you may met the same problem, I was using BitmapFactory.decodeStream, and got this exception: Code...
I know the reason is because the BitmapFactory is trying to decode an uncompressed version of a big image(in my situation, jpg). I can use BitmapFactory.Options.inSampleSize to fix it. but my question is what's the maximum size that VM would like to allocate for loading a image with BitmapFactory? so I can do some scale before it loads.
