Constants

public static final int DENSITY_NONE

Added in API level 4

Indicates that the bitmap was created for an unknown pixel density.

Constant Value: 0 (0x00000000)

Fields

public static final Creator<Bitmap> CREATOR

Added in API level 1

Public Methods

public boolean compress (Bitmap.CompressFormat format, int quality, OutputStream stream)

Added in API level 1

Write a compressed version of the bitmap to the specified outputstream. If this returns true, the bitmap can be reconstructed by passing a corresponding inputstream to BitmapFactory.decodeStream(). Note: not all Formats support all bitmap configs directly, so it is possible that the returned bitmap from BitmapFactory could be in a different bitdepth, and/or may have lost per-pixel alpha (e.g. JPEG only supports opaque pixels).

Parameters
format The format of the compressed image
quality Hint to the compressor, 0-100. 0 meaning compress for small size, 100 meaning compress for max quality. Some formats, like PNG which is lossless, will ignore the quality setting
stream The outputstream to write the compressed data.
Returns
  • true if successfully compressed to the specified stream.

public Bitmap copy (Bitmap.Config config, boolean isMutable)

Added in API level 1

Tries to make a new bitmap based on the dimensions of this bitmap, setting the new bitmap's config to the one specified, and then copying this bitmap's pixels into the new bitmap. If the conversion is not supported, or the allocator fails, then this returns NULL. The returned bitmap initially has the same density as the original.

Parameters
config The desired config for the resulting bitmap
isMutable True if the resulting bitmap should be mutable (i.e. its pixels can be modified)
Returns
  • the new bitmap, or null if the copy could not be made.

public void copyPixelsFromBuffer (Buffer src)

Added in API level 3

Copy the pixels from the buffer, beginning at the current position, overwriting the bitmap's pixels. The data in the buffer is not changed in any way (unlike setPixels(), which converts from unpremultipled 32bit to whatever the bitmap's native format is.

After this method returns, the current position of the buffer is updated: the position is incremented by the number of elements read from the buffer. If you need to read the bitmap from the buffer again you must first rewind the buffer.

public void copyPixelsToBuffer (Buffer dst)

Added in API level 1

Copy the bitmap's pixels into the specified buffer (allocated by the caller). An exception is thrown if the buffer is not large enough to hold all of the pixels (taking into account the number of bytes per pixel) or if the Buffer subclass is not one of the support types (ByteBuffer, ShortBuffer, IntBuffer).

The content of the bitmap is copied into the buffer as-is. This means that if this bitmap stores its pixels pre-multiplied (see isPremultiplied(), the values in the buffer will also be pre-multiplied.

After this method returns, the current position of the buffer is updated: the position is incremented by the number of elements written in the buffer.

public static Bitmap createBitmap (DisplayMetrics display, int[] colors, int width, int height, Bitmap.Config config)

Added in API level 17

Returns a immutable bitmap with the specified width and height, with each pixel value set to the corresponding value in the colors array. Its initial density is determined from the given DisplayMetrics.

width The width of the bitmap
height The height of the bitmap
config The bitmap config to create. If the config does not support per-pixel alpha (e.g. RGB_565), then the alpha bytes in the colors[] will be ignored (assumed to be FF)
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the width or height are <= 0, or if the color array's length is less than the number of pixels.

public static Bitmap createBitmap (DisplayMetrics display, int[] colors, int offset, int stride, int width, int height, Bitmap.Config config)

Added in API level 17

Returns a immutable bitmap with the specified width and height, with each pixel value set to the corresponding value in the colors array. Its initial density is determined from the given DisplayMetrics.

public static Bitmap createScaledBitmap (Bitmap src, int dstWidth, int dstHeight, boolean filter)

Added in API level 1

Creates a new bitmap, scaled from an existing bitmap, when possible. If the specified width and height are the same as the current width and height of the source bitmap, the source bitmap is returned and no new bitmap is created.

Parameters
src The source bitmap.
dstWidth The new bitmap's desired width.
dstHeight The new bitmap's desired height.
filter true if the source should be filtered.
Returns
  • The new scaled bitmap or the source bitmap if no scaling is required.

public int describeContents ()

Added in API level 1

No special parcel contents.

Returns
  • a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshalled by the Parcelable.

public void eraseColor (int c)

Added in API level 1

Fills the bitmap's pixels with the specified Color.

Throws
IllegalStateException if the bitmap is not mutable.

public Bitmap extractAlpha ()

Added in API level 1

Returns a new bitmap that captures the alpha values of the original. This may be drawn with Canvas.drawBitmap(), where the color(s) will be taken from the paint that is passed to the draw call.

Returns
  • new bitmap containing the alpha channel of the original bitmap.

public Bitmap extractAlpha (Paint paint, int[] offsetXY)

Added in API level 1

Returns a new bitmap that captures the alpha values of the original. These values may be affected by the optional Paint parameter, which can contain its own alpha, and may also contain a MaskFilter which could change the actual dimensions of the resulting bitmap (e.g. a blur maskfilter might enlarge the resulting bitmap). If offsetXY is not null, it returns the amount to offset the returned bitmap so that it will logically align with the original. For example, if the paint contains a blur of radius 2, then offsetXY[] would contains -2, -2, so that drawing the alpha bitmap offset by (-2, -2) and then drawing the original would result in the blur visually aligning with the original.

The initial density of the returned bitmap is the same as the original's.

Parameters
paint Optional paint used to modify the alpha values in the resulting bitmap. Pass null for default behavior.
offsetXY Optional array that returns the X (index 0) and Y (index 1) offset needed to position the returned bitmap so that it visually lines up with the original.
Returns
  • new bitmap containing the (optionally modified by paint) alpha channel of the original bitmap. This may be drawn with Canvas.drawBitmap(), where the color(s) will be taken from the paint that is passed to the draw call.

public final int getAllocationByteCount ()

Added in API level 19

Returns the size of the allocated memory used to store this bitmap's pixels.

This can be larger than the result of getByteCount() if a bitmap is reused to decode other bitmaps of smaller size, or by manual reconfiguration. See reconfigure(int, int, Config), setWidth(int), setHeight(int), setConfig(Bitmap.Config), and BitmapFactory.Options.inBitmap. If a bitmap is not modified in this way, this value will be the same as that returned by getByteCount().

This value will not change over the lifetime of a Bitmap.

public final int getByteCount ()

Added in API level 12

Returns the minimum number of bytes that can be used to store this bitmap's pixels.

As of KITKAT, the result of this method can no longer be used to determine memory usage of a bitmap. See getAllocationByteCount().

public final Bitmap.Config getConfig ()

Added in API level 1

If the bitmap's internal config is in one of the public formats, return that config, otherwise return null.

public int getDensity ()

Added in API level 4

Returns the density for this bitmap.

The default density is the same density as the current display, unless the current application does not support different screen densities in which case it is DENSITY_DEFAULT. Note that compatibility mode is determined by the application that was initially loaded into a process -- applications that share the same process should all have the same compatibility, or ensure they explicitly set the density of their bitmaps appropriately.

Returns
  • A scaling factor of the default density or DENSITY_NONE if the scaling factor is unknown.

public int getGenerationId ()

Added in API level 12

Returns the generation ID of this bitmap. The generation ID changes whenever the bitmap is modified. This can be used as an efficient way to check if a bitmap has changed.

Returns
  • The current generation ID for this bitmap.

public final int getHeight ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the bitmap's height

public byte[] getNinePatchChunk ()

Added in API level 1

Returns an optional array of private data, used by the UI system for some bitmaps. Not intended to be called by applications.

public int getPixel (int x, int y)

Added in API level 1

Returns the Color at the specified location. Throws an exception if x or y are out of bounds (negative or >= to the width or height respectively). The returned color is a non-premultiplied ARGB value.

Parameters
x The x coordinate (0...width-1) of the pixel to return
y The y coordinate (0...height-1) of the pixel to return
Returns
  • The argb Color at the specified coordinate
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if x, y exceed the bitmap's bounds

public void getPixels (int[] pixels, int offset, int stride, int x, int y, int width, int height)

Added in API level 1

Returns in pixels[] a copy of the data in the bitmap. Each value is a packed int representing a Color. The stride parameter allows the caller to allow for gaps in the returned pixels array between rows. For normal packed results, just pass width for the stride value. The returned colors are non-premultiplied ARGB values.

Parameters
pixels The array to receive the bitmap's colors
offset The first index to write into pixels[]
stride The number of entries in pixels[] to skip between rows (must be >= bitmap's width). Can be negative.
x The x coordinate of the first pixel to read from the bitmap
y The y coordinate of the first pixel to read from the bitmap
width The number of pixels to read from each row
height The number of rows to read
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if x, y, width, height exceed the bounds of the bitmap, or if abs(stride) < width.
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException if the pixels array is too small to receive the specified number of pixels.

public final int getRowBytes ()

Added in API level 1

Return the number of bytes between rows in the bitmap's pixels. Note that this refers to the pixels as stored natively by the bitmap. If you call getPixels() or setPixels(), then the pixels are uniformly treated as 32bit values, packed according to the Color class.

As of KITKAT, this method should not be used to calculate the memory usage of the bitmap. Instead, see getAllocationByteCount().

Returns
  • number of bytes between rows of the native bitmap pixels.

public int getScaledHeight (DisplayMetrics metrics)

Added in API level 4

Convenience for calling getScaledHeight(int) with the target density of the given DisplayMetrics.

public int getScaledHeight (int targetDensity)

Added in API level 4

Convenience method that returns the height of this bitmap divided by the density scale factor.

Parameters
targetDensity The density of the target canvas of the bitmap.
Returns
  • The scaled height of this bitmap, according to the density scale factor.

public int getScaledHeight (Canvas canvas)

Added in API level 4

Convenience for calling getScaledHeight(int) with the target density of the given Canvas.

public int getScaledWidth (int targetDensity)

Added in API level 4

Convenience method that returns the width of this bitmap divided by the density scale factor.

Parameters
targetDensity The density of the target canvas of the bitmap.
Returns
  • The scaled width of this bitmap, according to the density scale factor.

public int getScaledWidth (DisplayMetrics metrics)

Added in API level 4

Convenience for calling getScaledWidth(int) with the target density of the given DisplayMetrics.

public int getScaledWidth (Canvas canvas)

Added in API level 4

Convenience for calling getScaledWidth(int) with the target density of the given Canvas.

public final int getWidth ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the bitmap's width

public final boolean hasAlpha ()

Added in API level 1

Returns true if the bitmap's config supports per-pixel alpha, and if the pixels may contain non-opaque alpha values. For some configs, this is always false (e.g. RGB_565), since they do not support per-pixel alpha. However, for configs that do, the bitmap may be flagged to be known that all of its pixels are opaque. In this case hasAlpha() will also return false. If a config such as ARGB_8888 is not so flagged, it will return true by default.

public final boolean hasMipMap ()

Added in API level 17

Indicates whether the renderer responsible for drawing this bitmap should attempt to use mipmaps when this bitmap is drawn scaled down. If you know that you are going to draw this bitmap at less than 50% of its original size, you may be able to obtain a higher quality This property is only a suggestion that can be ignored by the renderer. It is not guaranteed to have any effect.

Returns
  • true if the renderer should attempt to use mipmaps, false otherwise

public final boolean isMutable ()

Added in API level 1

Returns true if the bitmap is marked as mutable (i.e. can be drawn into)

public final boolean isPremultiplied ()

Added in API level 17

Indicates whether pixels stored in this bitmaps are stored pre-multiplied. When a pixel is pre-multiplied, the RGB components have been multiplied by the alpha component. For instance, if the original color is a 50% translucent red (128, 255, 0, 0), the pre-multiplied form is (128, 128, 0, 0).

This method always returns false if getConfig() is RGB_565.

This method only returns true if hasAlpha() returns true. A bitmap with no alpha channel can be used both as a pre-multiplied and as a non pre-multiplied bitmap.

Only pre-multiplied bitmaps may be drawn by the view system or Canvas. If a non-pre-multiplied bitmap with an alpha channel is drawn to a Canvas, a RuntimeException will be thrown.

Returns
  • true if the underlying pixels have been pre-multiplied, false otherwise

public final boolean isRecycled ()

Added in API level 1

Returns true if this bitmap has been recycled. If so, then it is an error to try to access its pixels, and the bitmap will not draw.

Returns
  • true if the bitmap has been recycled

public void prepareToDraw ()

Added in API level 4

Rebuilds any caches associated with the bitmap that are used for drawing it. In the case of purgeable bitmaps, this call will attempt to ensure that the pixels have been decoded. If this is called on more than one bitmap in sequence, the priority is given in LRU order (i.e. the last bitmap called will be given highest priority). For bitmaps with no associated caches, this call is effectively a no-op, and therefore is harmless.

public void reconfigure (int width, int height, Bitmap.Config config)

Added in API level 19

Modifies the bitmap to have a specified width, height, and Bitmap.Config, without affecting the underlying allocation backing the bitmap. Bitmap pixel data is not re-initialized for the new configuration.

This method can be used to avoid allocating a new bitmap, instead reusing an existing bitmap's allocation for a new configuration of equal or lesser size. If the Bitmap's allocation isn't large enough to support the new configuration, an IllegalArgumentException will be thrown and the bitmap will not be modified.

The result of getByteCount() will reflect the new configuration, while getAllocationByteCount() will reflect that of the initial configuration.

WARNING: This method should NOT be called on a bitmap currently used by the view system. It does not make guarantees about how the underlying pixel buffer is remapped to the new config, just that the allocation is reused. Additionally, the view system does not account for bitmap properties being modifying during use, e.g. while attached to drawables.

public void recycle ()

Added in API level 1

Free the native object associated with this bitmap, and clear the reference to the pixel data. This will not free the pixel data synchronously; it simply allows it to be garbage collected if there are no other references. The bitmap is marked as "dead", meaning it will throw an exception if getPixels() or setPixels() is called, and will draw nothing. This operation cannot be reversed, so it should only be called if you are sure there are no further uses for the bitmap. This is an advanced call, and normally need not be called, since the normal GC process will free up this memory when there are no more references to this bitmap.

public boolean sameAs (Bitmap other)

Added in API level 12

Given another bitmap, return true if it has the same dimensions, config, and pixel data as this bitmap. If any of those differ, return false. If other is null, return false.

public void setConfig (Bitmap.Config config)

Added in API level 19

Convenience method for calling reconfigure(int, int, Config) with the current height and width.

WARNING: this method should not be used on bitmaps currently used by the view system, see reconfigure(int, int, Config) for more details.

public void setDensity (int density)

Added in API level 4

Specifies the density for this bitmap. When the bitmap is drawn to a Canvas that also has a density, it will be scaled appropriately.

Parameters
density The density scaling factor to use with this bitmap or DENSITY_NONE if the density is unknown.

public void setHasAlpha (boolean hasAlpha)

Added in API level 12

Tell the bitmap if all of the pixels are known to be opaque (false) or if some of the pixels may contain non-opaque alpha values (true). Note, for some configs (e.g. RGB_565) this call is ignored, since it does not support per-pixel alpha values. This is meant as a drawing hint, as in some cases a bitmap that is known to be opaque can take a faster drawing case than one that may have non-opaque per-pixel alpha values.

public final void setHasMipMap (boolean hasMipMap)

Added in API level 17

Set a hint for the renderer responsible for drawing this bitmap indicating that it should attempt to use mipmaps when this bitmap is drawn scaled down. If you know that you are going to draw this bitmap at less than 50% of its original size, you may be able to obtain a higher quality by turning this property on. Note that if the renderer respects this hint it might have to allocate extra memory to hold the mipmap levels for this bitmap. This property is only a suggestion that can be ignored by the renderer. It is not guaranteed to have any effect.

Parameters
hasMipMap indicates whether the renderer should attempt to use mipmaps

public void setHeight (int height)

Added in API level 19

Convenience method for calling reconfigure(int, int, Config) with the current width and config.

WARNING: this method should not be used on bitmaps currently used by the view system, see reconfigure(int, int, Config) for more details.

stride The number of colors in pixels[] to skip between rows. Normally this value will be the same as the width of the bitmap, but it can be larger (or negative).
x The x coordinate of the first pixel to write to in the bitmap.
y The y coordinate of the first pixel to write to in the bitmap.
width The number of colors to copy from pixels[] per row
height The number of rows to write to the bitmap
Throws
IllegalStateException if the bitmap is not mutable
IllegalArgumentException if x, y, width, height are outside of the bitmap's bounds.
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException if the pixels array is too small to receive the specified number of pixels.

public final void setPremultiplied (boolean premultiplied)

Added in API level 19

Sets whether the bitmap should treat its data as pre-multiplied.

Bitmaps are always treated as pre-multiplied by the view system and Canvas for performance reasons. Storing un-pre-multiplied data in a Bitmap (through setPixel(int, int, int), setPixels(int[], int, int, int, int, int, int), or BitmapFactory.Options.inPremultiplied) can lead to incorrect blending if drawn by the framework.

This method will not affect the behavior of a bitmap without an alpha channel, or if hasAlpha() returns false.

Calling createBitmap() or createScaledBitmap() with a source Bitmap whose colors are not pre-multiplied may result in a RuntimeException, since those functions require drawing the source, which is not supported for un-pre-multiplied Bitmaps.

public void setWidth (int width)

Added in API level 19

Convenience method for calling reconfigure(int, int, Config) with the current height and config.

WARNING: this method should not be used on bitmaps currently used by the view system, see reconfigure(int, int, Config) for more details.

public void writeToParcel (Parcel p, int flags)

Added in API level 1

Write the bitmap and its pixels to the parcel. The bitmap can be rebuilt from the parcel by calling CREATOR.createFromParcel().

Parameters
p Parcel object to write the bitmap data into
flags Additional flags about how the object should be written. May be 0 or PARCELABLE_WRITE_RETURN_VALUE.
