2. Memory Leaking problem

I'm facing a serious Memory Leaking problem. The code below is a ImageAdapter 
for android.widget.Gallery.
After I rotate the screen for several times, the Application crashes and report 
a "out of memory error: bitmap size exceeds VM budget."
I wrote a finish() but it doesn't work either.
Really grateful to any suggestions.
