    Unhappy Limitations of Image Scaler API?

    Hi

    I wanted to use the Image scaler API of Asha 501.However,I couldnt make it accept an Image that I obtained from the camera! It accepts only a URL to a file in the Storage.

    Is this a limitation or is there any workaround for this ?

    it works only with files, so you would need to be using files with it.

    You can save the image you took from camera to a temp file in the file system and then use the scaler API.

    Yes that is always possible.But it seems like an unnecessary overhead.

    Same is the case for the Media Processor which performs Image Filters.Even though it only needs an input stream,It works well only with the input stream returned by a file.Not with byte array input stream..

    I was really hoping to use these for one of my apps.Really disappointed with this.Hope Nokia updates these APIs in the future.

    I have created a wiki which briefs on how to make maximum use of the Image processing capabilities of Asha, along with steps on how to overcome limitations.Your comments are welcome.
