With an android.intent.action.PICK I get the path to an image file (.jpg or .png), how can I get height and width before passing it to an image or sprite component

Use Taifun’s image metadata extension: https://puravidaapps.com/metadata.php

Thanks Ghica. I would have liked a simple call to an android.intent.action.?????
Thanks again.

Hi Salvatore

Have you tried using an Image Component? You can load the image into an image component and verify the image dimensions. Note, if you don't want the User to see the image, load to a seperate Screen.

Thanks Chris Ward. But using your method I do not get the real dimensions but already adapted dimensions.
Anyway, thanks for answering my question.

Hi again

Yes, you are absolutely right - my suggestion is total rubbish, sorry about that :)
