 When I try to view an image (any image) in the emulator, I get a pop-
up with the following message:

"Sorry!  The application Camera (process has
stopped unexpectedly.  Please try again."

Again, all I am trying to do is view an image.  Any suggestions?

Could you define "view an image"? What exactly are you doing?

Cant view images

 I mounted a SD card in the emulator; using the following command:
emulator -sdcard <file>

And then pushed JPEG images to it; using the following command:
adb push <local> <remote>

I am able to view these image's *thumbnails* fine in the Picture
application.  However, when I click on the thumbnail to view the
image, the emulator fails and attaches the pop-up I mentioned in my
original post.

 Errr.  Now I get this error message in Eclipse's Console when I try to
run my application.

"... Failed to upload Zeal Project.apk on 'emulator-5554': No space
left on device"

I only have one third party application installed on the emulator and
23MB of pictures on a 1gig SD card.

 The culprit, 'Android SDK: android-sdk-windows-1.0_r2'.
The solution, use 'Android SDK: android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1'.

I just downloaded 'release 1', and placed it in the same directory as
'release 2'.  Then changed my setting in Eclipse and now I am able to
view the images.

Unless I didn't configure r2 or I am unaware of its limitations; then
in my opinion, it is the culprit until proven otherwise.

Pictures directory.

i actually want crop funtion like

which is giving me the same error as it is related to the above

is this bug in sdk-r2 or do we have any other solution?

 Try running "adb logcat" when the emulator is running. It should tell
you the problem, or at least where the problem lies...
