converting Java bitmap to byte array


Question

  Bitmap bmp   = intent.getExtras().get("data");
  int size     = bmp.getRowBytes() * bmp.getHeight();
  ByteBuffer b = ByteBuffer.allocate(size);

  bmp.copyPixelsToBuffer(b);

  byte[] bytes = new byte[size];

  try {
     b.get(bytes, 0, bytes.length);
  } catch (BufferUnderflowException e) {
     // always happens
  }
  // do something with byte[]

When I look at the buffer after the call to copyPixelsToBuffer the bytes are all 0... The bitmap returned from the camera is immutable... but that shouldn't matter since it's doing a copy.

What could be wrong with this code?

Accepted Answer

Try something like this:

Bitmap bmp = intent.getExtras().get("data");
ByteArrayOutputStream stream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
bmp.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.PNG, 100, stream);
byte[] byteArray = stream.toByteArray();
bmp.recycle();

CompressFormat is too slow...

Try ByteBuffer.

※※※Bitmap to byte※※※

width = bitmap.getWidth();
height = bitmap.getHeight();

int size = bitmap.getRowBytes() * bitmap.getHeight();
ByteBuffer byteBuffer = ByteBuffer.allocate(size);
bitmap.copyPixelsToBuffer(byteBuffer);
byteArray = byteBuffer.array();

※※※byte to bitmap※※※

Bitmap.Config configBmp = Bitmap.Config.valueOf(bitmap.getConfig().name());
Bitmap bitmap_tmp = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, configBmp);
ByteBuffer buffer = ByteBuffer.wrap(byteArray);
bitmap_tmp.copyPixelsFromBuffer(buffer);
