Retrieving an Image from Drone


This is a bit of a follow-up from my previous post, “Programmatically Taking a Picture”.

I might have mentioned before that I am trying to develop an Android app that can take a picture, collect metadata at the time that the picture is taken, then send the image with the relevant metadata off somewhere else, like AWS S3.

The best I could find on that so far is by calling photoState().latestMediaId() on the Main Camera object to retrieve the ID of the most recent photo, but that’s just a String.

How could I get the actual image, whether that be in the form of a file (JPEG), a byte array, a bitmap, or whatever else?
