Default [GUIDE] Improve captured image & video quality

Hi,

Here is a guide on how to improve image & video quality that captured with your phone and tablet.

Notice:
- This guide will work with all Android devices and ROMs.

Steps:

1. Look for media_profiles.xml at /system/etc and open it.

2. Find this line (there will be two lines, one for camera & another for video):
Code:
Select Code
<ImageEncoding quality="90"/>
<ImageEncoding quality="80"/>
<ImageEncoding quality="70"/>
<ImageDecoding memCap="1000000"/>
3. Change the ImageEncoding quality value to this:
Code:
Select Code
<ImageEncoding quality="120"/>
<ImageEncoding quality="110"/>
<ImageEncoding quality="100"/>
<ImageDecoding memCap="1000000"/>
4. Save (make sure that permission is still rw-r--r--) and reboot.

5. Profit?

Hope this trick works for you.

The file size should be larger and the image is sharper.
