Hey Simon,

It's been awhile since I've been in Android/Java land so here goes.

If anyone knows of some

I'm guessing this is the operation that's loading it all into a bitmap:
bitmap =;

There appears to be a way to grab byte by byte of the input stream [1]. So
you could potentially write your own decodeStream method that takes in a
few bytes of the image at a time, do some image proc to resample the image
to a smaller size by only analysing a small portion of the image at a time,
then piece together all of the smaller resampled images to form the
complete smaller bitmap image.

That should save you from loading the entire image in memory but involves
some trickery with indexing the bytes correctly from the image, resampling
based on those bytes and piecing everything back together.
