Android : Can I Create Bitmap From An Image (.png)?
Aug 18, 2010
I have an image in .png format in "drawable" folder and need to create Bitmap from it, so can use in public void drawBitmap (Bitmap<http://developer.android.com/reference/android/graphics/Bitmap.html>bitmap, float left, float top, Paint <http://developer.android.com/reference/android/graphics/Paint.html>paint)
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.
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 trying to build an Android application which can take several photos taken by the camera, and merge them into one giant image. For example, I might take three photos and arrange them in a vertical stack for output as a single image. Ideally, I'd like to be able to keep the images at the original size. Unfortunately, using Bitmap.createBitmap() causes an OutOfMemoryException before even approaching the size of one photo of camera dimensions. Is this possible? Or do I just need to resort to scaling the photos before trying to merge them into a single Bitmap?
I am using BitmapFactory.decodeFile to load Bitmaps of images into my application. However, the function returns null on large images (such as those from the camera). The filepath is definitely correct, I just can't figure out why it would return null. I tried supersampling, but it didn't seem to help.
Does anyone have any idea why it would do this or how I could more easily load images taken from the camera into a Bitmap?
I have a Bitmap image (bm) and a an ImageView (iv) of 50 by 50 when i do iv.setImageBitmap(bm) ... only a portion of the entire image is seen ..How can i see the whole image in the 50 dip by 50 dip ImageView...
I'm trying to create a MapView in a service (live wallpaper), but have it hidden so that I can render it to a Bitmap, and then map it to a texture to render in opengl. I have a Canvas and a Bitmap, and I intended to call myMap.draw(myCanvas) in order to get it into the correct bitmap so that I could then bind it as a texture.
When I Initialize I do the following: myMap = new MapView(ctx, APPSTATICS.MAP_API_KEY); I get an error: java.lang.RuntimeException: stub at com.google.android.maps.MapView.<init> (Unknown Source) Why I can't create a new mapview which I can use to draw to a offscreen bitmap?
I am using MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.getThumbnail to create bitmap of thumbnail in htc hero , it takes lots of time to execute this. I other device it works faster. Please suggest any alternative to this method to create bitmap thumbnail so speed improves.
I have a problem - I am writing an application that displays up to 12 images on screen, and moves them around, plus reads touch events. I am using a sample code I found, and it works great. Now I need adding 3D - meaning emulating the objects moving in the Z axis, too (in/out of screen). To do this, I need to resize the images as they move. To test this, I changed the following line in my onDraw (Panel) code: canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, coords.getX(), coords.getY(), null); to: Bitmap bmpScaled = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(bitmap, 112, 112, false); canvas.drawBitmap(bmpScaled, coords.getX(), coords.getY(), null); Which works, BUT - movement on screen, plus response to touch events becomes real Jiggly. Checking the log I see that every call to createScaledBitmap causes garbage collection of around 90mS, which causes the total app to respond jiggly. Tried preparing 20 sized bitmaps beforehand, but since that moves the calls to those createScaledBitmap to the beginning of the app - it takes forever to load. Can you think of any workaround or other way to achieve the scaling effect?
I am banging my head against the wall trying to create a Bitmap from a Path object (android.graphics.Path). Is there any way to do this? I've browsed through most of the classes now but can't seem to find any way to do it.
Actually, what I have is a Path that consists of many cubic Bezier curves. It is really expensive to draw with canvas.drawPath(). So I figured that I could perhaps "cache" the Bitmap of this Path by converting the Path to a Bitmap once and then just drawing the Bitmap every time instead of calling canvas.drawPath().
Is there any way to create a Bitmap from this Path?
Or is there a smarter way to draw tha Path multiple times without having to recalculate all of the Beziers? For example, if I created a ShapeDrawable from PathShape from the Path, and just draw the ShapeDrawable objects every time, would that be more efficient than drawing the Path every time?
Will anybody guide me, I want to decode image bitmap picked from Picture application(on a android phone), so How should I achieve this. First thing is how to retrieve image from Picture application, after picking it, if I assign it to temp image variable, is there any method in Bitmap.Factory to decode this image into bitmap.
With imageview and network-thread,i am making live cam-view ,bitmap size is "360 240", after parsing network-data to bitmap. Code...
All thing is good ,i can see live-cam but, to fit image in screen like " Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(orgBitmap, width, height / 2 , true)" Seeing bitmap is getting slow , the bigger bitmap is , the more speed down finally, shut-downed.
I have a basic application that uses just squares and circles that appear when the screen is toched. I want to be able to save this created image, the design is build on a bitmap image, and displayed on the canvas so I want to be able to save that as an image to the mobile device.
I have problem with displaying bitmap image on imageview on high density screen (480x800). When the bitmap image loaded from file on sdcard, the image does not scale to fit hdpi screen. On medium density screen it works normal (320x480).code...
At canvas there are many methods (canvas.rotate (35); canvas.drawBitmap (myBitmap, x, y, null); and many other things), but the method of mirror reflexion of image is absent (or I have not found it). At Bitmap too not that is not. Is it possible to reflect horizontally on canvas the image given Bitmap?
So I'm loading images from a web service, but the size of the images are sometimes smaller or bigger than other images and the visualization looks silly when I put them in a ListView in android. I'd like to fix the size of my ImageView so that it only shows a portion of the image if it's larger than a preset amount. I've tried everything I can think of setting the setMaxWidth/setMaxHeight, setting the scale type to centerCrop, using ClipableDrawable wrapping my BitmapDrawable, setting using Drawable.setBounds(). I've tried setting in the XML and programmatically, but neither worked. I'm very surprised setting max width/height didn't do anything. Below is the XML I'm using ImageView definition in my layout file
I have been trying to create a ListView Activity with an ImageView in every row. I've used this tutorial: http://developer.android.com/resources/samples/ApiDemos/src/com/examp... The issue is that there are always some dividers missing whenever I run the example. The dividers are disappearing/appearing and flickering as i scroll the list (tested in emulator and HTC Tattoo). Strange is that the same example downloaded from the market (API Demos app) behaves correctly. Here is a screenshot of how it looks: http://yfrog.com/4cnokp.
