Air Native Extension for mobile camera and gallery features (iOS + Android)

This is an Air native extension that allows you to display native UI to pick media (videos and images) from the gallery or take a picture/video with the camera on iOS and Android. It has been developed by FreshPlanet.


Complete usage example is in the sample directory

The ANE in the sample/libs directory works standalone.

The ANE in the bin directory is compiled without Android support libraries and will not work standalone.

In the manifestAdditions section of your AIR app manifest for Android, include this in the application element:

<activity android:name="com.freshplanet.ane.AirImagePicker.activities.GalleryActivity" android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"/>
<activity android:name="com.freshplanet.ane.AirImagePicker.activities.CropActivity" android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"/>
<activity android:name="com.freshplanet.ane.AirImagePicker.activities.CameraActivity" android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"/>

Advanced features available: square cropping, custom positioning for the gallery image picker on iPad.

For more information, please look at the Actionscript documentation in


The ANE binary (AirImagePicker.ane) is located in the bin folder. You should add it to your application project's Build Path and make sure to package it with your app (more information here).

Build script

Should you need to edit the extension source code and/or recompile it, you will find an ant build script (build.xml) in the build folder:

cd /path/to/the/ane/build
mv build.config
#edit the build.config file to provide your machine-specific paths
