Android saving file to external storage ?

call this function to save your bitmap in SD card

private void SaveIamge(Bitmap finalBitmap) {

    String root = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString();
    File myDir = new File(root + "/saved_images");    
    Random generator = new Random();
    int n = 10000;
    n = generator.nextInt(n);
    String fname = "Image-"+ n +".jpg";
    File file = new File (myDir, fname);
    if (file.exists ()) file.delete (); 
    try {
           FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file);
           finalBitmap.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 90, out);

    } catch (Exception e) {

and add this in manifest

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" /> 

Note : By using this line you can able to see saved images in the gallery view.

sendBroadcast(new Intent(
            Uri.parse("file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory())));
