Image file is empty on return from activity on Android

Using code from this answer: http://stackoverflow.com/a/12347567/734687

I use the following code to let a user submit a picture to my Android application.

private void openImageIntent() {
File outputFile = null;
try {
outputFile = File.createTempFile("tmp", "face", getCacheDir());
} catch (IOException pE) {
pE.printStackTrace();
}
mOutputFileUri = Uri.fromFile(outputFile);

// Camera.
final List<Intent> cameraIntents = new ArrayList<Intent>();
final Intent captureIntent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
final PackageManager packageManager = getPackageManager();
final List<ResolveInfo> listCam = packageManager.queryIntentActivities(captureIntent, 0);
for(ResolveInfo res : listCam) {
final String packageName = res.activityInfo.packageName;
final Intent intent = new Intent(captureIntent);
intent.setComponent(new ComponentName(res.activityInfo.packageName, res.activityInfo.name));
intent.setPackage(packageName);
intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, mOutputFileUri);
cameraIntents.add(intent);
}

// Filesystem.
final Intent galleryIntent = new Intent();
galleryIntent.setType("image/*");
galleryIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_PICK);

// Chooser of filesystem options.
final Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(galleryIntent, "Select Source");

// Add the camera options.
chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, cameraIntents.toArray(new Parcelable[cameraIntents.size()]));

startActivityForResult(chooserIntent, 42); //XXX 42?
}

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
if (requestCode == 42) {
final boolean isCamera;
if (data == null) {
isCamera = true;
} else {
final String action = data.getAction();
if (action == null) {
isCamera = false;
} else {
isCamera = action.equals(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
}
}
Uri selectedImageUri = null;
if (isCamera) {
selectedImageUri = mOutputFileUri;
} else {
selectedImageUri = data == null ? null : data.getData();
}
loadFacePicture(selectedImageUri);
}
}
}


However the Uri
selectedImageUri
leads to an empty file on
loadFacePicture(selectedImageUri);


What did I missed ?

Answer

This is what I endup doing. This seemed to be the source of the issue:

    intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, mOutputFileUri);

The actual code:

private void openImageIntent() {
        try {
            outputFile = File.createTempFile("tmp", ".jpg", getCacheDir());
        } catch (IOException pE) {
            pE.printStackTrace();
        }
        mOutputFileUri = Uri.fromFile(outputFile);

        // Camera.
        final List<Intent> cameraIntents = new ArrayList<Intent>();
        final Intent captureIntent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
        final PackageManager packageManager = getPackageManager();
        final List<ResolveInfo> listCam = packageManager.queryIntentActivities(captureIntent, 0);
        for(ResolveInfo res : listCam) {
            final String packageName = res.activityInfo.packageName;
            final Intent intent = new Intent(captureIntent);
            intent.setComponent(new ComponentName(res.activityInfo.packageName, res.activityInfo.name));
            intent.setPackage(packageName);
            cameraIntents.add(intent);
        }

        // Filesystem.
        final Intent galleryIntent = new Intent();
        galleryIntent.setType("image/*");
        galleryIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_PICK);

        // Chooser of filesystem options.
        final Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(galleryIntent, "Select Source");

        // Add the camera options.
        chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, cameraIntents.toArray(new Parcelable[cameraIntents.size()]));

        startActivityForResult(chooserIntent, 42);
    }


@Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
        if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            if (requestCode == 42) {
                Bitmap bmp = null;
                if (data.hasExtra("data")) {
                    Bundle extras = data.getExtras();
                    bmp = (Bitmap) extras.get("data");
                } else {
                    AssetFileDescriptor fd = null;
                    try {
                        fd = getContentResolver().openAssetFileDescriptor(data.getData(), "r");
                    } catch (FileNotFoundException pE) {
                        pE.printStackTrace();
                    }
                    bmp = BitmapFactory.decodeFileDescriptor(fd.getFileDescriptor());
                }
                try {
                        FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(new File(mOutputFileUri.getPath()));
                        bmp.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, out);
                        out.flush();
                        out.close();
                    } catch (Exception e) {
                        e.printStackTrace();
                    }
                loadFacePicture(mOutputFileUri);
            }
        }
    }
