I wonder how is it possible to reduce the size of the image file created by the phone when taking a selfie. Modern phones have high resolution cameras, and the image file they create has a big size of several MB. Downloading those files from web storage consumes a lot of data and takes several seconds (depending on the size of the file, and the data conection of the phone in the mobile network). Such a high resolution image is not necessary just to be displayed on a small window of the mobile screen.
- May be there is already a low resolution copy of the photo in the phone (like the thumbs in gallery) that I can use.
- May be there is a way to configure the resolution of the mobile camera, when it is comanded from my app to take the picture.
- Or may be I will need to use an external web service to make a low res copy of the picture in a different folder of cloud storage.
Any clue or advice will be welcome.
Thank you in advance.
