Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
This is crazy. I know there are threads that touch on this already, but none of them have led me to the answer. I can't believe that it is really this difficult!
I want to get an image from the camera via UIImagePicker and resize the image so I can use it in my app. Fullsize images from the camera are far too large to hold in memory in large numbers. I can handle the ImgePicker fine. But once I get the fullsize image from it, I need to resize the image.
For the life of me, I can't figure out how to accomplish this simple task.
From what I've read so far, I have to do some quartz2d programming using bitmatcontexts and transforms. The results so far are not good. even when I can get an image out of the other end of my code, it is not oriented correctly or it is stretched the wrong way. If I attempt to apply more transforms to fix the problem, I'm thwarted again.
I know this is a rant and a cop out, but could someone help me get to a simple function that look like this:
return resizedImage (not resized and stretched or resized and rotated!)
I'd post some of my own code, but it is mostly hacked up versions of code I've found elsewhere on the net. I'm a fine iPhone programmer, but I've never dealt with low-level image stuff. I hoped that such a simple task as resizing an image would not be so difficult!
