Now my problems are:
- The pictures are saved twice. Once in the gallery, another in the specified folder. Is there any way to prevent this? I want the pictures taken within the app to stay within the app (What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas )
- My second issue is that i want to create a thumbail from each picture taken so to create a gallery of this pictures. I know I can create an Intent to make a picture or a thumbail, but I want to get both, is there any easy way to do this? Maybe i can create the Intent to call the camera and do a .putExtra to make it come with a thumbail as well?
- My third issue is actually a doubt. I know i can ask the gallery to display a picture/s. But that's not enough. What I actually want to do is to display only the pictures taken from my app, in an specified order(that can be modified from the preferences) according to a query from my database . Is it possible to make the gallery work like this or should I create my own gallery view for this purpose?
This is what I'm doing now for this purpose. I chopped it down a little, removed some stuff of the Layout cause firstly it was meant to display thumbails, that i have not created yet, and also i have not tackle it to be displayed on a dinamic RelativeLayout yet.
How it is showed now it only displays a button that when pressed goes to the cam and specifies where to save the pic. If the pic is taken then the path along an id that comes from a previous class its stored on my database.
So if anyone is willing to give me some tips / guidance / relevant examples / opinion / etc on the subject please feel free to do so. Anything is more than welcomed. I will be digging myself into this issues, but after a few hours of googling I've decided to create this post, maybe after a few more hours tomorrow i find the answers to my issues, but maybe someone here already knows them and is willing to make my life a little easier. If that is the case:
