🚨How to migrate from ArthurHub/Android-Image-Cropper🚨

Wanna help the project? Amazing!

Android Image Cropper

Powerful (Zoom, Rotation, Multi-Source);
Customizable (Shape, Limits, Style);
Optimized (Async, Sampling, Matrix);
Simple image cropping library for Android.


Add to your project

See GitHub Wiki for more info.

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your root build.gradle

  allprojects {
     repositories {
       maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }

Step 2. Add the dependency

  dependencies {
       implementation 'com.github.CanHub:Android-Image-Cropper:${version}'

Latest Release Version

Step 3. Add permissions to manifest

Only need if you run on devices under OS10 (SDK 29)

   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"
       android:maxSdkVersion="28" />

Step 4. Add this line to your Proguard config file

-keep class androidx.appcompat.widget.** { *; }

Step 5. Set source compatibility version to Java 8

  • Go to app level build.gradle file

  • Add this line inside android in build.gradle

     compileOptions {
         sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
         targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
  • This will set the java version to 8

Using the Library

There is 3 ways of using the library:

  • Calling crop directly (Sample code: sample/crop_image)
  • Using the CropView (Sample code: sample/crop_image_view)
  • Extending the activity (Sample code: sample/extend_activity)
    Your choice depends on how you want your layout to look.

Obs: The library has a public pick image contract, more on wiki.

Calling crop directly

  • Register for activity result with CropImageContract

class MainActivity {
   private val cropImage = registerForActivityResult(CropImageContract()) { result ->
           if (result.isSuccessful) {
               // use the returned uri
               val uriContent = result.uriContent 
               val uriFilePath = result.getUriFilePath(context) // optional usage
           } else {
               // an error occurred
               val exception = result.error

   private fun startCrop() {
       // start picker to get image for cropping and then use the image in cropping activity
           options {

       //start picker to get image for cropping from only gallery and then use the image in
       //cropping activity
           options {
                   PickImageContractOptions(includeGallery = true, includeCamera = false)

       // start cropping activity for pre-acquired image saved on the device and customize settings
           options(uri = imageUri) {

Using CropView

  1. Add CropImageView into your activity

<!-- Image Cropper fill the remaining available height -->
  1. Set image to crop

// or (prefer using uri for performance and better user experience)
  1. Get cropped image

// subscribe to async event using cropImageView.setOnCropImageCompleteListener(listener)
// or
val cropped: Bitmap = cropImageView.getCroppedImage()

Extend to make a custom activity

If you want to extend the CropImageActivity please be aware you will need to setup your CropImageView
You can check a sample code in this project com.canhub.cropper.sample.extend_activity.app.ExtendActivity

  • Add CropImageActivity into your AndroidManifest.xml

<activity android:name="com.canhub.cropper.CropImageActivity"
  android:theme="@style/Base.Theme.AppCompat"/> <!-- optional (needed if default theme has no action bar) -->
  • Setup your CropImageView after call super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)

override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {


  • Built-in CropImageActivity.
  • Set cropping image as Bitmap, Resource or Android URI (Gallery, Camera, Dropbox, etc.).
  • Image rotation/flipping during cropping.
  • Auto zoom-in/out to relevant cropping area.
  • Auto rotate bitmap by image Exif data.
  • Set result image min/max limits in pixels.
  • Set initial crop window size/location.
  • Request cropped image resize to specific size.
  • Bitmap memory optimization, OOM handling (should never occur)!
  • API Level 14.
  • More..


  • Cropping window shape: Rectangular, Oval (square/circle by fixing aspect ratio), as well as
    rectangular modes which only allow vertical or horizontal cropping.
  • Cropping window aspect ratio: Free, 1:1, 4:3, 16:9 or Custom.
  • Guidelines appearance: Off / Always On / Show on Touch.
  • Cropping window Border line, border corner and guidelines thickness and color.
  • Cropping background color.
