This application let's the user attach (dictate) an audio clip to a selected image.  The user can then do such thing as listen to the previous recorded dictations of the images, send out the image/dictation pair via email.


Initial Screen

On top of the screen you will see the selection bar to choose either the Talking Photo Gallery or the SD Image Gallery.  The Talking Photo Gallery contains the photos that were taken within the Talking Photo application; and the SD Image Gallery contains all the images from the device's SD card.

Upon first use of the TalkingPhoto application, and the SD Image Gallery is chosen, the application will generate a gallery of the images from the Android device's SD card.  Depending on the number of images that's stored in the user's Android device's SD card, it may take up to minutes to complete the generation of the image gallery.  Note that this would only happen at the first time use of the TalkingPhoto application.  Once the SD Image Gallery is generated, accessing it's images is pretty much instantaneous.

The images in the gallery is order by the images' create date.

Once the image gallery is generated, it is displayed on the top of the screen.  The user can swipe the gallery left/right to search for the image that he/she wishes to attach audio clip to.

The Option Menu

The option menu of the Initial screen allows the user to:

Delete image(s) - Trash Can icon

Click on the Trash Can icon and then go to the gallery and click on the image(s) that you wish to delete.  After the target image(s) are all selected, bring up the option menu again and confirm the deletion of the selected image(s) by clicking on the Trash Can again.

Note that the the deletion of the target image from the TalkingPhoto application will remove the image from the SD card.  This means that the image will no longer exist in the device and other application won't be able to access the image either.  Therefore, please use precaution when deleting images.
