Why does the 'save image' feature in 'DevRant' Android App take so long? I mean it's just saving the image from ram to storage right.... also the image sizes are pretty small.

Okay just noticed they aren't getting saved anywhere...😅

    What? Aren't saved anywhere? What?

    They get saved for me tho.

    I guess it takes so long to download because they add in a watermark at the bottom of the picture.

    @fuckwit pls share the path and also I don't think adding the bottom line uses do much resources..... I mean image editing software do it so fast.

    For me it is saved in /storage/emulated/0/Pictures/devRant/

    These programs are optimized to do that. Work with images. I wouldn't be surprised if devrant just iterates over all pixels, adds some, while doing all this in a single thread.

    greped the file system... didn't find anywhere.. @fuckwit once I was working on images and displaying them and stuff. It would work like a scratch card of sorts.. like the user had to 'fill in' the image area to uncover it.. and I hadn't used any sort of special algorithm; it was literally the most straight forward code... and it ran damn smooth... so I doubt that's what is actually causing the delay.

    here's a cool idea.. everyone find the md5 digest of this attached image and let's post it here and compare if devrant is doing some sort of Easter egg thingy with images...😁😁😁

    these are the md5 digests i got. also note when downloading from website the additional line at the bottom isn't added....

    since i'm not able to download on my phone i haven't added the digest for the same

    The downloading also isn't working for me. I get the confirmation message that it was downloaded but it appears nowhere in my files. This has been happening for several weeks at least.

    Make sure you give the devrant app storage permission.

    Image saving takes so long because the image gets edited to add the found on devrant banner the bottom of the image which needs to be generated when you go to save it b
