📸Image Picker Library for Android

Built with ❤︎ by Dhaval Patel and contributors

Easy to use and configurable library to Pick an image from the Gallery or Capture image using Camera. It also allows to Crop and Compresses the Image based on Aspect Ratio, Resolution and Image Size.

Almost 90% of the app that I have developed has an Image upload feature. Along with the image selection, Sometimes I needed a crop feature for profile image for that I've used uCrop. Most of the time I need to compress the image as the image captured from the camera is more than 5-10 MBs and sometimes we have a requirement to upload images with specific resolution/size, in that case, image compress is the way to go option. To simplify the image pick/capture option I have created ImagePicker library. I hope it will be useful to all.

????‍????Features:

  • Pick Gallery Image
  • Pick Image from Google Drive
  • Capture Camera Image
  • Crop Image (Crop image based on provided aspect ratio or let user choose one)
  • Compress Image (Compress image based on provided resolution and size)
  • Retrieve Image Result as Uri object (Retrieve as File object feature is removed in v2.0 to support scope storage)
  • Handle runtime permission for camera
  • Does not require storage permission to pick gallery image or capture new image.

Profile Image Picker Gallery Only Camera Only

💻Usage

  1. Gradle dependency:

    allprojects {
       repositories {
            maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
       }
    }
    implementation 'com.github.dhaval2404:imagepicker:2.1'

    If you are yet to Migrate on AndroidX, Use support build artifact:

    implementation 'com.github.dhaval2404:imagepicker-support:1.7.1'
  2. The ImagePicker configuration is created using the builder pattern.

    Kotlin

    ImagePicker.with(this)
            .crop()        //Crop image(Optional), Check Customization for more option
            .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.with(this)
            .crop()        //Crop image(Optional), Check Customization for more option
            .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()
  3. Handling results

    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 uri: Uri = data?.data!!
    
             // Use Uri object instead of File to avoid storage permissions
             imgProfile.setImageURI(fileUri)
         } 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 registerForActivityResult, Only Works with FragmentActivity and AppCompatActivity)

    i. Add required dependency for registerForActivityResult API

    implementation "androidx.activity:activity-ktx:1.2.3"
    implementation "androidx.fragment:fragment-ktx:1.3.3"

    ii. Declare this method inside fragment or activity class

    private val startForProfileImageResult =
        registerForActivityResult(ActivityResultContracts.StartActivityForResult()) { result: ActivityResult ->
            val resultCode = result.resultCode
            val data = result.data
    
            if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
                //Image Uri will not be null for RESULT_OK
                val fileUri = data?.data!!
    
                mProfileUri = fileUri
                imgProfile.setImageURI(fileUri)
            } 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()
            }
        }

    iii. Create ImagePicker instance and launch intent

    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)
            .createIntent { intent ->
                startForProfileImageResult.launch(intent)
            }

🎨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)
        .cropSquare() //Crop square image, its same as crop(1f, 1f)
        .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()
  • Set Resize image resolution

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .maxResultSize(620, 620) //Final image resolution will be less than 620 x 620
     .start()
  • Intercept ImageProvider, Can be used for analytics

    ImagePicker.with(this)
        .setImageProviderInterceptor { imageProvider -> //Intercept ImageProvider
            Log.d("ImagePicker", "Selected ImageProvider: "+imageProvider.name)
        }
        .start()
  • Intercept Dialog dismiss event

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .setDismissListener {
      // Handle dismiss event
      Log.d("ImagePicker", "onDismiss");
     }
     .start()
  • Specify Directory to store captured, cropped or compressed images. Do not use external public storage directory (i.e. Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory())

    ImagePicker.with(this)
       /// Provide directory path to save images, Added example saveDir method. You can choose directory as per your need.
    
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files
       .saveDir(getExternalFilesDir(null)!!)
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files/DCIM
       .saveDir(getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_DCIM)!!)
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files/Download
       .saveDir(getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS)!!)
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files/Pictures
       .saveDir(getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES)!!)
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files/Pictures/ImagePicker
       .saveDir(File(getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES)!!, "ImagePicker"))
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/files/ImagePicker
       .saveDir(getExternalFilesDir("ImagePicker")!!)
       //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/package/cache/ImagePicker
       .saveDir(File(getExternalCacheDir(), "ImagePicker"))
       //  Path: /data/data/package/cache/ImagePicker
       .saveDir(File(getCacheDir(), "ImagePicker"))
       //  Path: /data/data/package/files/ImagePicker
       .saveDir(File(getFilesDir(), "ImagePicker"))
    
      // Below saveDir path will not work, So do not use it
      //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/DCIM
      //  .saveDir(Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(Environment.DIRECTORY_DCIM))
      //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/Pictures
      //  .saveDir(Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES))
      //  Path: /storage/sdcard0/ImagePicker
      //  .saveDir(File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory(), "ImagePicker"))
    
        .start()
  • Limit MIME types while choosing a gallery image

    ImagePicker.with(this)
        .galleryMimeTypes(  //Exclude gif images
            mimeTypes = arrayOf(
              "image/png",
              "image/jpg",
              "image/jpeg"
            )
          )
        .start()
  • You can also specify the request code with ImagePicker

    ImagePicker.with(this)
     .maxResultSize(620, 620)
     .start(101) //Here 101 is request code, you may use this in onActivityResult
  • Add Following parameters in your colors.xml file, If you want to customize uCrop Activity.

    <resources>
