SquareCamera

Description

Android module that takes a square photo using the native Android Camera APIs. The new Camera2 APIs from the L release is not used because support has to go back to SDK version 14 for my own requirement.

Features

  • Tap to focus
  • Two fingers zooming
  • Front & Back camera
  • Flash mode (Saved when the user exits)
  • Supports both portrait & landscape
  • Runtime permission is supported for saving/viewing photos

SDK Support

Support from SDK version 14 onwards

repositories {
    jcenter()

Example

private static final int REQUEST_CAMERA = 0;

// Check for camera permission in MashMallow
public void requestForCameraPermission(View view) {
    final String permission = Manifest.permission.CAMERA;
    if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(MainActivity.this, permission)
            != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
        if (ActivityCompat.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(MainActivity.this, permission)) {
            // Show permission rationale
        } else {
            // Handle the result in Activity#onRequestPermissionResult(int, String[], int[])
            ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(YourActivity.this, new String[]{permission}, REQUEST_CAMERA_PERMISSION);
        }
    } else {
        // Start CameraActivity
    }
}

// Start CameraActivity
Intent startCustomCameraIntent = new Intent(this, CameraActivity.class);
startActivityForResult(startCustomCameraIntent, REQUEST_CAMERA);

// Receive Uri of saved square photo
@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (resultCode != RESULT_OK) return;

    if (requestCode == REQUEST_CAMERA) {
        Uri photoUri = data.getData();
    }
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
}
