Image selector for Android device. Support single choice and multi-choice.



###Run Demo

./gradlew installDebug

###Quick Start

  • Step 0 Add module multi-image-selector as your dependence. in your build.gradle :
repositories {
    maven { url "" }

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.lovetuzitong:MultiImageSelector:1.2'
  • Step 1 Set your AndroidManifest.xml as below:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />



    <!--Image Selector Entry-->
        android:name="me.nereo.multi_image_selector.MultiImageSelectorActivity" />
  • Step 2 Call image selector simplest in your code, eg. ( From version-1.1 )
// Multi image selector form an Activity
        .start(Activity, REQUEST_IMAGE);

Detail Api.

        .showCamera(boolean) // show camera or not. true by default
        .count(int) // max select image size, 9 by default. used width #.multi()
        .single() // single mode
        .multi() // multi mode, default mode;
        .origin(ArrayList<String>) // original select data set, used width #.multi()
        .start(Activity/Fragment, REQUEST_IMAGE);

Also support traditional Intent :

Intent intent = new Intent(mContext, MultiImageSelectorActivity.class);
// whether show camera
intent.putExtra(MultiImageSelectorActivity.EXTRA_SHOW_CAMERA, true);
// max select image amount
intent.putExtra(MultiImageSelectorActivity.EXTRA_SELECT_COUNT, 9);
// select mode (MultiImageSelectorActivity.MODE_SINGLE OR MultiImageSelectorActivity.MODE_MULTI)
intent.putExtra(MultiImageSelectorActivity.EXTRA_SELECT_MODE, MultiImageSelectorActivity.MODE_MULTI);
// default select images (support array list)
intent.putStringArrayListExtra(MultiImageSelectorActivity.EXTRA_DEFAULT_SELECTED_LIST, defaultDataArray);
startActivityForResult(intent, REQUEST_IMAGE);
  • Step 3 Receive result in your onActivityResult Method. eg.
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if(requestCode == REQUEST_IMAGE){
        if(resultCode == RESULT_OK){
         // Get the result list of select image paths
            List<String> path = data.getStringArrayListExtra(MultiImageSelectorActivity.EXTRA_RESULT);
            // do your logic ....
  • Step 4 No more steps, just enjoy. :)

###Custom Activity Style

  • Custome your own Activity
class CustomerActivity extends Activity implements MultiImageSelectorFragment.Callback{
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  // customer logic here...
  Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
        bundle.putInt(MultiImageSelectorFragment.EXTRA_SELECT_COUNT, mDefaultCount);
        bundle.putInt(MultiImageSelectorFragment.EXTRA_SELECT_MODE, mode);
        bundle.putBoolean(MultiImageSelectorFragment.EXTRA_SHOW_CAMERA, isShow);
        // Add fragment to your Activity
                .add(, Fragment.instantiate(this, MultiImageSelectorFragment.class.getName(), bundle))
    public void onSingleImageSelected(String path) {
        // When select mode set to MODE_SINGLE, this method will received result from fragment

    public void onImageSelected(String path) {
        // You can specify your ActionBar behavior here 

    public void onImageUnselected(String path) {
        // You can specify your ActionBar behavior here 

    public void onCameraShot(File imageFile) {
        // When user take phone by camera, this method will be called.
