found a lot of documentation on how to load large Bitmaps and avoid outofmemory exception. but the problem is that I have to take the image from my MediaStore.Images.media so the classical decodeFile(path,options) indicated in the google documentation does not work to me

As you can see below I decommented the line // Bitmap photo= Mediastore.Images, that is the one that triggers the out of memory. on the other side adding the line Bitmap bm=BitmapFactory.decodeFile(selectedImageToUri,options) return null, although the compiler can see both the path in selectedImageToUri( that indicates the content provider where the pics are) than the options value, that I set to 8, because I want to subscale all the images

My question is how can I insert in bm the bitmap that is referring to the image selected by the user in the gallery. in the line BitMap photo does not return null and work really well, but I decommented because after I change a couple of images gives me outofmemory exception
