[self presentViewController:imagePickerController animated:YES completion:NULL];

Installation

CocoaPods

  1. Add pod "QBImagePickerController" to Podfile
  2. Run pod install
  3. Add #import <QBImagePickerController/QBImagePickerController.h> to your code

Carthage

  1. Add github "questbeat/QBImagePicker" to Cartfile
  2. Run carthage update
  3. Add #import <QBImagePicker/QBImagePicker.h> to your code

Usage

Basic

  1. Implement QBImagePickerControllerDelegate methods
  2. Create QBImagePickerController object
  3. Set self to the delegate property
  4. Show the picker by using presentViewController:animated:completion:

    QBImagePickerController *imagePickerController = [QBImagePickerController new]; imagePickerController.delegate = self;

    [self presentViewController:imagePickerController animated:YES completion:NULL];

Delegate Methods

Getting the selected assets

Implement qb_imagePickerController:didFinishPickingAssets: to get the assets selected by the user.
This method will be called when the user finishes picking assets.

- (void)qb_imagePickerController:(QBImagePickerController *)imagePickerController didFinishPickingAssets:(NSArray *)assets {
    for (PHAsset *asset in assets) {
        // Do something with the asset
    }

    [self dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:NULL];
}

Getting notified when the user cancels

Implement qb_imagePickerControllerDidCancel: to get notified when the user hits "Cancel" button.

- (void)qb_imagePickerControllerDidCancel:(QBImagePickerController *)imagePickerController {
    [self dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:NULL];
}

Getting notified when the selection is changed

You can handle the change of user's selection by implementing these methods.

- (BOOL)qb_imagePickerController:(QBImagePickerController *)imagePickerController shouldSelectAsset:(PHAsset *)asset;
- (void)qb_imagePickerController:(QBImagePickerController *)imagePickerController didSelectAsset:(PHAsset *)asset;
- (void)qb_imagePickerController:(QBImagePickerController *)imagePickerController didDeselectAsset:(PHAsset *)asset;

Customization

Selection mode

When allowsMultipleSelection is YES, the user can select multiple photos.
The default value is NO.

imagePickerController.allowsMultipleSelection = YES;

You can limit the number of selection by using minimumNumberOfSelection and maximumNumberOfSelection property.
The default value is 0, which means the number of selection is unlimited.

imagePickerController.minimumNumberOfSelection = 3;
imagePickerController.maximumNumberOfSelection = 6;

Specify the albums to be shown

Use assetCollectionSubtypes property to specify the albums to be shown.
The code below shows the default value.

imagePickerController.assetCollectionSubtypes = @[
    @(PHAssetCollectionSubtypeSmartAlbumUserLibrary), // Camera Roll
    @(PHAssetCollectionSubtypeAlbumMyPhotoStream), // My Photo Stream
    @(PHAssetCollectionSubtypeSmartAlbumPanoramas), // Panoramas
    @(PHAssetCollectionSubtypeSmartAlbumVideos), // Videos
    @(PHAssetCollectionSubtypeSmartAlbumBursts) // Bursts
];

The albums will be ordered as you specified.
User's albums are always shown after the smart albums.

Specify the media type to be shown

Use mediaType to filter the assets to be shown.
The default value is QBImagePickerMediaTypeAny.

imagePickerController.mediaType = QBImagePickerMediaTypeVideo;

Showing information

There are some properties to show helpful information.

imagePickerController.prompt = @"Select the photos you want to upload!";
imagePickerController.showsNumberOfSelectedAssets = YES;

Grid size

Use numberOfColumnsInPortrait and numberOfColumnsInLandscape to change the grid size.
The code below shows the default value.

imagePickerController.numberOfColumnsInPortrait = 4;
imagePickerController.numberOfColumnsInLandscape = 7;
