Android: Share an image to other apps

The last post was about receiving shared images.

To send off images to another app, just use:

Intent intent;
File file;

file = new File(absolute_filename);
intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.fromFile(file));

startActivity(Intent.createChooser(intent, "Share photo"));

If you need to be particular about the mime type, see get file mime type from filename.
