MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap and out of memory error

My code code is:

public Bitmap loadPhoto(Uri uri) {
    Bitmap scaled = null;
    try {
    scalled = Bitmap.createBitmap(
      MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(getContentResolver(), uri),
      0,0,90, 90);

    if (scaled == null) { return null; }
    } catch(Exception e) { }
    return scaled;

After this. I display scaled in ImageView. Every image comes from the device camera.

Every time, I get error: out of memory after I display three photos from camera. How to solve this?


Try using BitmapFactory to fix the problem

For those who are looking for code sample:

private static int calculateInSampleSize(
        BitmapFactory.Options options, int reqWidth, int reqHeight) {
    // Raw height and width of image
    final int height = options.outHeight;
    final int width = options.outWidth;
    int inSampleSize = 1;

    if (height > reqHeight || width > reqWidth) {

        final int halfHeight = height / 2;
        final int halfWidth = width / 2;

        // Calculate the largest inSampleSize value that is a power of 2 and keeps both
        // height and width larger than the requested height and width.
        while ((halfHeight / inSampleSize) >= reqHeight
                && (halfWidth / inSampleSize) >= reqWidth) {
            inSampleSize *= 2;

    return inSampleSize;

public static Bitmap decodeSampledBitmapFromUri(Context context, Uri imageUri, int reqWidth, int reqHeight) throws FileNotFoundException {

    // Get input stream of the image
    final BitmapFactory.Options options = new BitmapFactory.Options();
    InputStream iStream = context.getContentResolver().openInputStream(imageUri);

    // First decode with inJustDecodeBounds=true to check dimensions
    options.inJustDecodeBounds = true;
    BitmapFactory.decodeStream(iStream, null, options);

    // Calculate inSampleSize
    options.inSampleSize = calculateInSampleSize(options, reqWidth, reqHeight);

    // Decode bitmap with inSampleSize set
    options.inJustDecodeBounds = false;
    return BitmapFactory.decodeStream(iStream, null, options);

The MediaStore.getBitmap method is a convenience method that does not specify a sample size when obtaining the bitmap. If you are using getBitmap(ContentResolver, Uri), and want to use a sample size, just use the ContentResolver to get the input stream, and decode the bitmap as you would normally (calculating sample size first, and then loading it with the appropriate sample size).
