Modular and fully customizable UIImagePickerController replacement with Simulator-compatible AVFondation camera, AssetsLibrary and custom directory assets' browser, and image cropping, filters and gallery.

A demo project is included in the repository.


Image Picker

Block-based UIImagePickerController replacement with as many/few features as you need.

Screenshot 1

Enable/disable modules or use them stand-alone.


Customizable AVFoundation-based camera UIView.

Can be embeded into any superview, custom UIViewController or used along NBUCameraViewController. It even takes mock pictures in the iOS Simulator!

Screenshot 2 Screenshot 3


Multiple classes of all three MVC categories to simplify access to AssetsLibrary while observing its change notifications to stay always in a valid state.

Also support for local assets: Images in custom directories that are displayed like regular Assets Library albums.

Image Editing

Customizable views and controllers to modify filter and crop images.

Screenshot 6

Uses filters from CoreImage and GPUImage and can be extended to other libraries as well.

Image Gallery

Image slideshow in development inspired by FGallery.

The main goal of NBUImagePicker is to be fully customizable and easy to extend.

Change element's sizes, position, customize picker workflow, add/remove/rename filters, localize for other languages, use cropping features from other libraries, etc.
