?Usage

  1. Gradle dependency:

    allprojects {
       repositories {
           jcenter() // For ImagePicker library, this lien is enough. Although, it has been published on jitpack as well
            maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }  //Make sure to add this in your project for uCrop - an internal library
       }
    }
    implementation 'com.github.Drjacky:ImagePicker:$libVersion'

    Where

    If you want to get the activity result inline in a modern way (lambda) install InlineActivityResult library:

    implementation 'com.github.florent37:inline-activity-result-kotlin:1.0.4'
  2. If you target Android 10 or higher(targetSdkVersion >= 29), set the value of requestLegacyExternalStorage to true in your app’s manifest file:

    <manifest ... >
        <!-- This attribute is "false" by default on apps targeting
             Android 10 or higher. -->
        <application android:requestLegacyExternalStorage="true" ... >
          ...
        </application>
    </manifest>
  3. The ImagePicker configuration is created using the builder pattern.

    Kotlin

    ImagePicker.with(this)
            .crop()        //Crop image(Optional), Check Customization for more option
            .cropOval()    //Allow dimmed layer to have a circle inside
            .compress(1024)   //Final image size will be less than 1 MB(Optional)
            .maxResultSize(1080, 1080) //Final image resolution will be less than 1080 x 1080(Optional)
            .start()

    Java

    ImagePicker.Companion.with(this)
            .crop()        //Crop image(Optional), Check Customization for more option
            .cropOval()    //Allow dimmed layer to have a circle inside
            .compress(1024)   //Final image size will be less than 1 MB(Optional)
            .maxResultSize(1080, 1080) //Final image resolution will be less than 1080 x 1080(Optional)
            .start()
  4. Handling results

    Default method(Preferred way) Override onActivityResult method and handle ImagePicker result.

    override fun onActivityResult(requestCode: Int, resultCode: Int, data: Intent?) {
         super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data)
         if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
             //Image Uri will not be null for RESULT_OK
             val fileUri = data?.data
             imgProfile.setImageURI(fileUri)
          
            //You can get File object from intent
            val file:File = ImagePicker.getFile(data)!!
           
            //You can also get File Path from intent
            val filePath:String = ImagePicker.getFilePath(data)!!
         } else if (resultCode == ImagePicker.RESULT_ERROR) {
             Toast.makeText(this, ImagePicker.getError(data), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
         } else {
             Toast.makeText(this, "Task Cancelled", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
         }
    }

    Inline method (with InlineActivityResult library, Only Works with FragmentActivity and AppCompatActivity) (Not to be used with crop. See #32)

    ImagePicker.with(this)
            .compress(1024)         //Final image size will be less than 1 MB(Optional)
            .maxResultSize(1080, 1080)  //Final image resolution will be less than 1080 x 1080(Optional)
            .start { resultCode, data ->
                if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
                    //Image Uri will not be null for RESULT_OK
                     val fileUri = data?.data
                     imgProfile.setImageURI(fileUri)
                  
                    //You can get File object from intent
                    val file:File = ImagePicker.getFile(data)
                   
                    //You can also get File Path from intent
                    val filePath:String = ImagePicker.getFilePath(data)
                } else if (resultCode == ImagePicker.RESULT_ERROR) {
                    Toast.makeText(context, ImagePicker.getError(data), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                } else {
                    Toast.makeText(context, "Task Cancelled", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                }
            }

?Customization

  • Pick image using Gallery

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .galleryOnly() //User can only select image from Gallery
     .start() //Default Request Code is ImagePicker.REQUEST_CODE
  • Capture image using Camera

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .cameraOnly() //User can only capture image using Camera
     .start()
  • Crop image

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .crop()     //Crop image and let user choose aspect ratio.
     .start()
  • Crop image with fixed Aspect Ratio

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .crop(16f, 9f) //Crop image with 16:9 aspect ratio
     .start()
  • Crop square image(e.g for profile)

    ImagePicker.with(this)

        .start()
  • Compress image size(e.g image should be maximum 1 MB)

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .compress(1024) //Final image size will be less than 1 MB
     .start()

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .maxResultSize(620, 620) //Final image resolution will be less than 620 x 620
