README.md

I guess people are just cropping out all the sadness

An Android library project that provides a simple image cropping Activity, based on code from AOSP.

Note: We use this library in production without too many problems, but it's not maintained very actively. There are other options out there.

Features

  • Gradle build & AAR
  • Modern UI
  • Backwards compatible to SDK 10
  • Simple builder for configuration
  • Example project

Usage

First, declare CropImageActivity in your manifest file:

<activity android:name="com.soundcloud.android.crop.CropImageActivity" />

Crop

Crop.of(inputUri, outputUri).asSquare().start(activity)

Listen for the result of the crop (see example project if you want to do some error handling):

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent result) {
    if (requestCode == Crop.REQUEST_CROP && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
        doSomethingWithCroppedImage(outputUri);
    }
}

Some attributes are provided to customise the crop screen. See the example project theme.

Pick

The library provides a utility method to start an image picker:

Crop.pickImage(activity)

Dependency

The AAR is published on Maven Central:

compile 'com.soundcloud.android:android-crop:1.0.1@aar'

Users

Apps that use this library include: SoundCloud, Depop, Polyvore, TextSecure
