Currently both are defined by adding a maxImagePixelSize entry to distribution/camera.json (see bug 932556).

However, they don't necessarily need to be the same. Typically the camera app needs much more resources to take a snapshot than it takes the gallery to display an image of the same size. So by setting the same max we may be unnecessarily limiting the gallery.

Hi djf,

As part of the bug 942199 investigation I found out my device is taking larger snapshots than it needs to. The problem is when I limit the snapshot size it also limits the gallery size, which I don't want. What do you think of my proposal?
Flags: needinfo?(dflanagan)
I think it would be a good idea to separate the two configuration options.  I'd still caution against raising the gallery limit too high, since we have a long history of OOM crashes in Gallery.  (Fixing bug 854795 will go a long way toward making the gallery limit obsolete, however, and that is another reason that we should go ahead and separate them.)

Build time configuration options for the camera is an area that needs a lot more thought.  We do a lot of run-time configuration and I think we might want to switch to instead having many build-time configuration options.  So any change you make here might soon be replaced by some kind of more comprehensive configuration system.

But don't let that stop you!

patch - m-c - v1

Review of attachment 8363022 [details] [diff] [review]:

r+ if you address the nits I've identified.

Because of a recent camera refactoring, the camera.js file has changed dramatically. So note that you are likely to need to do a manual uplift of this patch to 1.3. I'm just guessing that this patch will not cherry-pick cleanly.

Let me know if you need help landing or uplifting it.

This would be simpler and easier to read if you just did this:


Also, consider replacing "IMAGE_CAPTURE" with "PHOTO".  Less typing that way.

This line needs a '\n' at the end of it so that the generated file is readable.

This line looks like it is more than 80 characters wide.  We probably don't run the linter over these scripts in the build directory, but I'd still like to follow our basic style, so please reformat to wrap on to two lines.
