Android - Limited Bitmap memory problem

I have already coded some Android games. But in my current game, I am working with very large images. My problem is, that the notorious OutOfMemoryError keeps crashing the program. For my game is no way around containing a big count of Bitmaps simultaneously. Is there any way, how I can solve this problem?

Hmm. Do you need all the bitmaps in memory? If not, have you tried to free the memory before you draw the next bitmap?

Why do you need to use bmp's? Wouldn't png's be better?

@Tashi N Is it possible to draw in Android without Bitmaps? I mean - You create a Bitmap out of a png file to draw it later on a canvas. Isn't it?

@Tashi N Yes, I tried it already. It improves the situation, but it does not remove the problem: Two more Bitmaps and there you are: OutOfMemoryError.

@Tashi N This is a good idea. I will test it tomorrow ... or The Day After Tomorrow ... Hopefully the application does not get slow, if I permanently recycle and create Bitmaps. Thank you for your detailed help!
