JPSImagePickerController

A pixel-perfect clone of iOS 7's UIImagePickerController, with a few improvements. I built this because Apple's image picker is difficult to modify. Works on both iPad & iPhone.

Screenshots

Features:

  • Front/Back camera switching
  • Flash on/off
  • Taking pictures in multiple orientations
  • Triggering a picture with the "volume up" hardware button
  • Confirmation screen
  • Zooming the image in the confirmation screen
  • Displaying a message in the confirmation screen

Installation

From CocoaPods

Add pod 'JPSImagePickerController' to your Podfile.

Manually

Drag the JPSImagePickerController folder into your project and link the MediaPlayer and AVFoundation frameworks to your project.

Usage

Just launch it modally and set its delegate:

JPSImagePickerController *imagePicker = [[JPSImagePickerController alloc] init];
imagePicker.delegate = self;
[self presentViewController:imagePicker animated:YES completion:nil];

Its delegate can respond to the following methods:

// Called immediately after the picture was taken
- (void)picker:(JPSImagePickerController *)picker didTakePicture:(UIImage *)picture;
// Called immediately after the "Use" button was tapped
- (void)picker:(JPSImagePickerController *)picker didConfirmPicture:(UIImage *)picture;
// Called immediately after the "Cancel" button was tapped
- (void)pickerDidCancel:(JPSImagePickerController *)picker;

See sample Xcode project for more examples on how to configure.

TODO

  • Display a box around the tapped area when tapping to focus.
  • Per-element rotation of "flash", "camera switch" and "Cancel" buttons. This is tricky because we don't want our whole layout to change, just those buttons.
  • Better camera switching animation. It's currently a bit janky.
  • Full reproduction of UIImagePickerController's flash control. i.e. expanding to see "Auto", "On" & "Off"
