Android :: Save Data From Camera To Disk Using MediaStore On Android?

Mar 16, 2009

I'd been using my own Camera class for taking images and my own database but soon enough I couldn't really keep up with changes and I decided to use the built in camera application in Android to do the job, but I can't seem to get it to save file. What am I missing here? The application seems to save the file but it's just 0 bytes. I looked up the source code of the Camera application and it's looking for the "output" in Extras to save the file.

Public class CameraTest extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

Android :: save data from Camera to disk using MediaStore on Android?


Android :: Activity / Process Lifecycle - Save / Load Data To / From Disk

Nov 26, 2009

My app is made of two activities, A and B. I'm considering this sequence of steps: Activity A is started. A launches B [A is paused, B is running]. B launches a map intent [A and B are both paused now]. Now the user is using the maps application and the system decides it needs more memory. Can the system kill only one of my activities for memory, or will it always kill all activities in a "process" in this situation?

Both activities share some static data like:

class Data {
public static String mName;
public void save() {
// write to file: mName;...................

Android :: Small Picture Retrieved From Camera Although Specified MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT In 2.X

May 7, 2010

I just don't get it: when I use the camera with an intent and also specify an output file, the returned image is always very small on many devices (e.g. Motorola Milestone 2.1, HTC Desire 2.1, Emulator 2.1, Emulator 2.0.1) but not on all (e.g. Nexus One). Here's what I do to bring up the camera app:

private final static String TEMP_PHOTO_FILE = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/TEMP_PHOTO.JPG"; ..............

Android :: Save Canvas To Disk

Sep 22, 2009

I am doing a painting program (KIds Paint - you can find in Android Market) and I have a lot of requests to save the content on disk or to wallpaper. I have been searching around but cannot find solution. My guess is that I probably wanted to get the bitmap from the canvas, but I can't find ways to get it. Then I try to set an empty bitmap into the canvas and draw on the canvas, and save the bitmap... but I got an empty bitmap..........

Android : Camera - Internal Listoption / Save Pictures On Sdcard?

Jul 19, 2010

When you are taking a picture on an and device, you can send it. There are apps, which are pushing their actions into these send-list (Like Twidroid, which adds a listitem called "Send Tweet" in that menu).

So, how is it possible to add such a menu point into that menu? For my app, I want to make it possible to take pictures from both (The App itself and via the real camera-send-list) and save them on the sdcard.

Android : Way To Save Data On SD Card Always Deletes On Re-install?

Jul 30, 2010

I am using the getExternalFilesDir(null) method to save to the SD card. Saving and reading from the SD card is fine. The problem I am having is that every time I edit anything in Eclipse and rerun the app the data on the SD card is deleted. I know that saving to the directory returned by getExternalFilesDir(null) will allow the files there to be deleted when my app is uninstalled but is there a way to turn it off for just app updating? Is this only cause I am doing it from Eclipse and it won't delete the data when the app is updated from the market?

Android :: Attempts To Save Data In Database Aren't Working

Nov 5, 2010

We've been developing an Android app at work for a few months now and recently acquired Droid Incredibles (API ver. 8) to replace our HTC Dev Phones (API ver. 4).

DANG are these some sweet new toys, but unsurprisingly, they've got a few quirks...

1) It's normal for my user to let the program run for long periods without any input, but he'd still need the display to work the entire time. Can anybody suggest a function call or setting or something that will prevent the Incredible's screen from dimming while my application is running??

2) On the Dev phone, I was able to copy my application's database file (thousands of uses, that) onto the SD card's root directory and fly. I could view the directory on my PC via USB; when I released the SD card from the PC, my application was perfectly happy with it and obediently read from and wrote to the database; and I didn't have to remove the SD card, ever. That doesn't seem to be the case with the newer, better phone, though. My application seems to be reading my start up parameters properly, but all attempts to save data in my database aren't working so well unless I'm just doing something wrong. Can anybody point me to documentation specifically geared toward the Incredible?

General :: Can Android Store Save Games / Data On Cloud?

Oct 30, 2011

Not possible with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. The only way is to use Titanium Backup, and better than that, Nandroid Backup. You can as well extract data from a Nandroid backup with Titanium Backup.

I have a Nexus S and I wonder if, with the option Settings -> Accounts and sync -> Background data & Auto-sync & Manage accounts (sync is on) the settings and savegames are automatically stored "on the cloud", let it be my Google account or similar, because I don't have a rooted phone and don't want to do that to preserve warranty.

So, the apps for wich I want to save data are:
Air Penguin
Angry Birds
Angry Birds Rio
Angry Birds Seasons
Clouds & Sheep
Dolphin Browser HD
Flight Director
Jewellust Xmas
X Construct

Android : Getting ID Of An Image In MediaStore?

Sep 27, 2010

I'm trying to query the Android's MediaStore.Images.Media to get the images contained in the device. I get my cursor on the DB like this: Code...
and I get the indices of the columns this way:

int dataIdx = cursor.getColumnIndex(DATA); ... int idIdx = cursor.getColumnIndex(MediaStore.Images.Media._ID);

unfortunately it seems that the column index idIdx is always -1, which means the column doesn't exist. Am I doing something wrong? Is there anyone else experiencing the same?

Android :: Singleton Objects To Save State Or Share Data Between Activities?

Nov 24, 2010

It would be nice if StackOverflow had a section where we could post tutorials like mine so that I can answer literally hundreds of questions that have been asked here with a single blow. See... every day I read questions about how to pass complex objects between activities, how to save state so that your app can resume after orientation change, how to update listviews when the data changes, etc, etc. Here is the second part of a tutorial series I posted on my blog... I hope that you actually read it... because I haven't seen any examples like it anywhere... and it has changed how I think about developing for Android across the board. The question is... is there a downside or negative affect of developing like this?

Beyond Smart Lists - How Observable Singletons change the game. Please read through both of these tutorials carefully... I will answer any questions about it here that I can... I really want to know what you think about this and if it might solve issues for you. NOTE TO MODERATORS: there are no advertisements of any kind on my blog.. so don't just close this because you think I am spamming somehow... I am not going to duplicate my post here.

HTC Incredible :: Allow Camera To Save Pictures Onto SD Card?

Apr 29, 2010

1) Is there a way to allow the camera to save pictures onto the SD card, as mine does not do so?

2) Within the Gmail app, is there a way to move messages from your inbox to other user-created folders? The Motorola Droid definitely had this option, but on the Incredible it looks like it only lets me apply a "Label", which I'm unfamiliar with, though this does not actually move the e-mail to that folder.

Android : MediaStore Setting Photo Name To NULL

Aug 13, 2010

I have an app that allows the user to take and save a new picture using the Intent ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE. After the user accepts the newly taken picture, I create a ContentValue object to set the picture information, and then I insert the picture into the MediaStore and send a broadcast so that the user can see the photo when opening a picture viewer app such as gallery:

ContentValues newImage = new ContentValues(3);

newImage.put(Media.DISPLAY_NAME, mPicName);
newImage.put(Media.MIME_TYPE, "image/png");
newImage.put(MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA, path);
mPictureUri = getContentResolver().insert(Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, newImage);
sendBroadcast(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE, mPictureUri));

All of this code works fine. The photo is correctly saved, and I can view the photo using gallery. The problem is that when I view the photo in gallery and select "Details" it shows the photo name as "null." And yes, I know for a fact that the variable mPicName above is not null and always has the correct value.

The odd thing is that, when running my app on my Droid running Android 2.1, when I choose to copy files to/from the phone and my computer, I open up the Droid on my Windows computer, and when I go into my app's created folder for photos and view the new photo, the name is correct. Then, when I disable copying files from the phone/computer and go back into gallery to view the file on my Droid, the name is suddenly correct and is no longer null.

Can someone tell me why the name is null after my code runs, and why the name is correct after viewing the file on my computer rather than on the phone? Is there a way to get the name non-null right when the picture is saved? I'd bet that the name would be correct if I turned my phone off and turned it back on, but I'm not sure how exactly to get force things to work immediately.
