In the previous post, I showed how you can compile FreeImage for Android. In this post, I'll demonstrate how you can include the resulting FreeImage library in your project.

include $(CLEAR_VARS) LOCAL_MODULE := FreeImage LOCAL_SRC_FILES := ./external/freeimage/lib/$(TARGET_ARCH_ABI)/libFreeImage.a
LOCAL_EXPORT_C_INCLUDES := $(LOCAL_PATH)/external/freeimage/include include$(PREBUILT_STATIC_LIBRARY)
As its name suggests, $(TARGET_ARCH_ABI) will resolve to the target ABI (e.g. armeabi-v7a). The static library should be placed in the first path above, and the FreeImage.h header in the second. Then, add LOCAL_STATIC_LIBRARIES := FreeImage to your main module. Be aware that if your main module is composed of only C code, you'll have to include an empty C++ file, otherwise the STL won't be linked in to your build. include$(CLEAR_VARS)
include \$(BUILD_STATIC_LIBRARY)
LOCAL_STATIC_LIBRARIES := FreeImage Empty
