The process for capturing, saving and displaying an image in Android can be quite annoying, especially if you want it to work across all devices.

With the release of the Sense UI (an HTC creation), it's made things 1 step more difficult. So, the reason I'm writing this article is because I've been stuck on this same issue for quite awhile, and there isn't enough information out there to let us know why it simply won't work.

Simply put, the Sense UI handles things differently when it comes to saving a new image after an intent was called (ie. new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE)). In this article I'll show you how I overcame this problem and walk you through my code.
