I am using HttpClient to make a request from my Android device to a simple HTTP server, which contains a PHP script to retrieve a picture. The picture is available inside a blob data. It means if I do this little PHP code in the server side:

 file_put_contents("myPicture.png", $blob_data);

I get the picture saved in the server with a file named myPicture.png. Now I want to get this $blob_data (my picture) to save it inside my Android device, not the HTTP server. Someone can give me a hint to return the blob data from the PHP script and get the picture inside the Android device to store it locally?

Here is my HTTPClient:

public void LoginTrigger(){

    String nUsername = username.getText().toString().trim();
    String nPassword = password.getText().toString().trim();

    if (nUsername.matches("") || nPassword.matches("")){

        displayToast("Please insert your login!");
        List<NameValuePair> urlParameters = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>();
        urlParameters.add(new BasicNameValuePair("username", nUsername));
        urlParameters.add(new BasicNameValuePair("password", nPassword));

        HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
        HttpPost post = new HttpPost(SERVER_PROXY);
        post.setHeader("User-Agent", SERVER_USER_AGENT);
            post.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(urlParameters, "utf-8"));
        catch(Exception e){

        HttpResponse response = null;
            response = client.execute(post);
            Log.e("Response Code : ", " = " + response.getStatusLine().getReasonPhrase());

            InputStream inputStream = response.getEntity().getContent();

            BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(inputStream, "UTF-8"));
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            String line = null;
            while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
                sb.append(line + "
            String responseMessage = sb.toString();
        catch(Exception e){
            Log.e("HTTP-ERROR", " = " + Log.getStackTraceString(e));
            displayToast("Check your Internet connection!");

String responseMessage contains my blob data when I echo it in my PHP script. I just need to put this stream inside a Bitmap or something, but I've no clue about how to get it done.

Thanks if you know it!

    php code (server)

    header('Content-Type: image/png');

    java code (device)

    URL url = new URL ("");
    InputStream input = url.openStream();
    try {
        //The sdcard directory e.g. '/sdcard' can be used directly, or 
        //more safely abstracted with getExternalStorageDirectory()
        File storagePath = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
        OutputStream output = new FileOutputStream (new File(storagePath,"myPicture.png"));
        try {
            byte[] buffer = new byte[aReasonableSize];
            int bytesRead = 0;
            while ((bytesRead =, 0, buffer.length)) >= 0) {
                output.write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
        } finally {
    } finally {

    You need to change both the client and the server code.

    The server code

    Add this at the end of your PHP script

    header("Content-Type: image/png");
    header("Content-Length: " . mb_strlen($blob_data, '8bit'));
    echo $blob_data;

    The client code

    Your code is not ready to read binary data, please, check out this other question on how to do it: how to download image from any web page in java

    it's not recommended to send the actual file to your android app , the best way to do that is by sending a base 64 encoded a link string of the image , which will have all the meta data of the image , then load the image from base46 encoded string

     $image = base64_decode($file_path);
     return response::json(array('image'=>$image);

    and receive it like object and render your image with the base64code image like this
    i do it in js like this

    var reader = new FileReader();
    reader.onload = function(e) {
                image_base64 =;
                preview.html("<img src='" + image_base64 + "'/>");
