    +## Sample: Take Pictures, Select Pictures from the Picture Library, and Get Thumbnails
    +The Camera plugin allows you to do things like open the device's Camera app and take
a picture, or open the file picker and select one. The code snippets in this section demonstrate
different tasks including:
    +* Open the Camera app and take a Picture
    +* Take a picture and return thumbnails (resized picture)
    +* Take a picture and generate a FileEntry object
    +* Select a file from the picture library
    +* Select a JPEG image and return thumbnails (resized image)
    +* Select an image and generate a FileEntry object
    +## Take a Picture
    +Before you can take a picture, you need to set some Camera plugin options to pass into
the Camera plugin's `getPicture` function. Here is a common set of recommendations. In this
example, you create the object that you will use for the Camera options, and set the `sourceType`
dynamically to support both the Camera app and the file picker.

    Why do we recommend this quality? I'm not arguing against it, just curious.
