How to use it?

STEP 1:

Grab via Gradle

repositories {
    jcenter()
}
dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.aryarohit07:picasso-facedetection-transformation:0.3.0'
}

Or via Maven

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.github.aryarohit07</groupId>
  <artifactId>picasso-facedetection-transformation</artifactId>
  <version>0.3.0</version>
</dependency>

STEP 2:

Initialize the detector (May be in onCreate() method)

PicassoFaceDetector.initialize(context);

STEP 3: Set picasso transform

Picasso
  .with(context)
  .load(url)
  .fit() // use fit() and centerInside() for making it memory efficient.
  .centerInside()
  .transform(new FaceCenterCrop(100, 100)) //in pixels. You can also use FaceCenterCrop(width, height, unit) to provide width, height in DP.
  .into(imageView);

STEP 4:

The face detector uses native resources in order to do detection. For this reason, it is necessary to release the detector instance once it is no longer needed (May be in onDestory() method)

PicassoFaceDetector.releaseDetector();

Note: If no face is detected, it will fallback to CENTER CROP.

Library dependencies:
