Android ImageView that handles Animated GIF images

Android Arsenal Build Status


In your build.gradle file:

dependencies {
  compile 'com.felipecsl:gifimageview:2.2.0'

In your Activity class:

@Override protected void onCreate(final Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  gifView = findViewById(;

@Override protected void onStart() {

@Override protected void onStop() {

If you need to post-process the GIF frames, you can do that via GifImageView.setOnFrameAvailable(). You can see an example of that in the sample app included on the repository.

gifImageView.setOnFrameAvailable(new GifImageView.OnFrameAvailable() {
  @Override public Bitmap onFrameAvailable(Bitmap bitmap) {
    return blurFilter.blur(bitmap);

You can also reset an animation to play again from the beginning gifImageView.resetAnimation(); or show a specific frame of the animation gifImageView.gotoFrame(3);


Be sure to also check the demo project for a sample of usage!

Snapshots of the development version are available in Sonatype's snapshots repository.


  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
  • Fork the project
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
