    1. yes sure!
      just remove crop image code from your activity-
      intent.putExtra("crop", "true");
      intent.putExtra("aspectX", 0);
      intent.putExtra("aspectY", 0);
      intent.putExtra("outputX", 200);
      intent.putExtra("outputY", 150);

      Thanks,

    1. Hello,
      I am not sure but it should work. If you did not get anything in bundle or in data is null you should get image path after capture an image and then try to crop it..
      Like this-
      public void callCamera() {
      Intent cameraIntent = new Intent(
      android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
      startActivityForResult(cameraIntent, CAMERA_REQUEST);
      }

      and after that-
      protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
      if (requestCode == CAMERA_REQUEST && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
      Bitmap photo = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data");

      /**
      * Get Path
      */
      Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
      String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

      Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(selectedImage,
      filePathColumn, null, null, null);
      cursor.moveToFirst();

      columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndex(filePathColumn[0]);

      /**
      *
      */

      and after that crop it...

    1. Hi,
      intent.putExtra("outputX", 200);
      intent.putExtra("outputY", 150)

      these line not for image size it is just for crop image size in 2:1.5 ratio..
      you can increase it using your fingers. My advice is don't fix it to-
      intent.putExtra("outputX", 600);
      intent.putExtra("outputY", 500);
      because everyone don't have high resolution screen device..

      Delete
  5. if i increase with my fingers for example if i take completes image the output image doesn't contain whole complete image it is cropping automatically and i am not able to see whole image.And in cropping screen,there are two buttons save and cancel.If i want to change text on them how can i change.please help me.

    1. For your first problem for crop image I am not sure what have to do because in my case its working fine. Actually it is totally depend upon your device density. For this I suggest you ask question on stackoverflow.com and if you got any answer please put your answer on my blog so I and my other visitor can take help from you.

      And second question for change save and cancel button. so when we use-intent.putExtra("crop", "true");
      this is android default behavior we have no any control or we should override OS.
      well it will be different text and button on different-different devices.

      Thank you so much and I am waiting for your comment.

  6. is it possible to keep pinch zoom in and zoom out for those images which i have selected from gallery so that i can make zoom in on image and fix in that box and so that i can get full image

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No I don't think it is possible zoom in after crop image. Better idea don't crop. Just remove crop code hope it will help you. Or search for any android library for crop image in full.

    2. thanks i will search if i get solution i will put answer in your blog

    3. i want to know that how that rectangle is coming and how to get size of rectangle.

      Delete
    4. This is depend upon android device density and size-
      Basically this is Android SDk default behavior we are not going to create any rectangle from our self..
      for testing just remove below 2 line from your crop code-
      intent.putExtra("aspectX", 0);
      intent.putExtra("aspectY", 0);

      you will see still its working but rectangle ratio is change now-
      and yes you can create your own Canvas for crop image in a fix size in any shape some thing like this-

      Bitmap targetBitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(targetWidth, targetHeight,
      Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
      Canvas canvas = new Canvas(targetBitmap);
      Path path = new Path();
      path.addCircle(((float) targetWidth) / 2,
      ((float) targetHeight) / 2,
      (Math.min(((float) targetWidth), ((float) targetHeight)) / 2),
      Path.Direction.CW);
      Paint paint = new Paint();
      paint.setColor(Color.GRAY);
      //paint.setStyle(Paint.Style.STROKE);
      paint.setStyle(Paint.Style.FILL);
      paint.setAntiAlias(true);
      paint.setDither(true);
      paint.setFilterBitmap(true);
      canvas.drawOval(new RectF(0, 0, targetWidth, targetHeight), paint) ;
      //paint.setColor(Color.TRANSPARENT);
      canvas.clipPath(path);
      Bitmap sourceBitmap = scaleBitmapImage;
      canvas.drawBitmap(sourceBitmap, new Rect(0, 0, sourceBitmap.getWidth(),
      sourceBitmap.getHeight()), new RectF(0, 0, targetWidth,
      targetHeight), paint);

    1. Hi Jaden can you paste your error log here?
      Well this camera code have issue with samsung gallexy series mobiles.
      Actually because of good quality high resolution image data got null in OnActivity Result..
      So try to get url of image instead of data..try below code-

      /**
      * On activity result
      */

      protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
      /**
      * Get Path
      */
      Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
      String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

      Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(selectedImage,filePathColumn, null, null, null);
      cursor.moveToFirst();

      if (((requestCode == CAMERA_REQUEST)||(requestCode == PICK_FROM_GALLERY)) && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
      //Bitmap photo = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data");

      columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndex(filePathColumn[0]);
      picturePath = cursor.getString(columnIndex);
      Log.e("Image View Path1", picturePath);
      Log.e("Selected Image path camera", String.valueOf(columnIndex));
      Bitmap yourSelectedImage = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picturePath);
      // convert bitmap to byte
      ByteArrayOutputStream stream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
      yourSelectedImage.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.PNG,100, stream);
      byte imageInByte[] = stream.toByteArray();
      // Inserting Contacts
      Log.d("Insert: ", "Inserting ..");
      db.addContact(new Contact("Android", imageInByte));
      Intent intent = new Intent(SQLiteDemoActivity.this,SQLiteDemoActivity.class);
      startActivity(intent);
      finish();
      }
      cursor.close();

      }

    1. As you can see-
      Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Didn't find class "camera.test.demo.SimpleCameraGalleryDemo" on path: /data/app/camera.test.demo-1.apk

      that mean something wrong with your code, have you declare SimpleCameraGalleryDemo in your manifest?
      or package name or file name is change..
      Please copy whole project with same class name and package name..

      and one more thing let me know your app crash on open camera or on launch your app?

  11. Ok. i will try it out. It crashes when i launch the app.

    1. what was the issue?
      well for camera crash you can try above code what I was comment -
      String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

      Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(selectedImage,filePathColumn, null, null, null);
      cursor.moveToFirst()
      ..
      Hope it will help you..

  13. It is the package name - SimpleCameraGalleryDemo - name conflicted. I solved it as you said and manage to select from image gallery and crop it.

    However, when i select camera, it crashes.

    And for the above code you gave it to me.... where do i place it in my coding?

    1. Okay so you can check this comment-

      logic is that- Samsung Gallexy serise mobile have good quality of camera so their size is also big that's why we got data==null in OnactivityResult.
      for avoiding this issue get last image capture location in your memory card and convert it into bitmap.

  14. Do i add the above given comment code into the OnActivityResult method for camera??

  16. Can you please tell me how to remove the spacing from image, that is when I capture image onResult the image is set but there is spacing in background, so how could I remove it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This spacing because of cropping image I mean suppose you capture an Image size of 480*720 and after that you crop it just half 240*360 that's why you are getting black dark shade in background.
      For this you should check device resolution and crop image according it..
      Well if you got any better solution please let me know and please publish you comment on my blog so other user can get help from you..

  18. Hi yan!
    Let me know please which device you are using for testing may be it happens because of high resolution image.

    1. As you can see your data is null that's why your application got crash..
      I think you are using Samsung phone for testing. In High Density device image size is big so we got data==null.
      for that just capture image and get last path of image and crop it..

      Just follow my this comment or do googling -

  35. Hi Manish,
    This is really a great tutorial, I have searched over a lot of websites and finally landed up here.
    My requirement is to take a picture and crop it and show it on the ImageView.

    With your code, I am able to take the picture, but upon confirming the picture, the app is crashing.

    When i commented out the cropping part, its working fine

    i.e. intent.putExtra("crop", "true");
    intent.putExtra("aspectX", 0);
    intent.putExtra("aspectY", 0);
    intent.putExtra("outputX", 200);
    intent.putExtra("outputY", 150);

    But, The cropping and displaying of image from gallery works fine, though my requirement is to capture and crop the image.

    Can you please guide me where i went wrong or what is problem?

    1. Hi Satish,
      Thanks for comming here and share your problem with me. Actually you are not doing anything wrong. problem with android OS. In market many size and many company devices and they have their own camera resolution and their own way to override android OS.
      I also got stuck same code working fine on HTC device and some of Samsung device but some of Samsung device have issue.

      I am using Samsung gallexy s-dues, HTC Desire and its working fine camera and gallery both but one of my friend have samsung device and I am getting crash on Gallery and on one of my user having crash on Camera.I am really got stuck. I don't know why Android allow to override OS like that.

      Actually problem is data when you are call camera or gallery Intent and getting in onActivityResult() data came null, that's why application got crash.

      for that I try many thing like getting direct path and after that crop that image but now this code is working fine on high density device but got crash on lower density devices :)

      Well If you don't want crop Image you can get it using it's path and display in Imageview. Please discuss your views, sure I will help you.

    1. Try something this-
      Bitmap finalImage = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(srcImage, desiredHeight, desiredWidth, true);

      and use finalImage for sending image over the server. I am not sure but it should work for you.

  60. Hi Manish,

    Thanks for this brilliant post!! It has really helped me.

    I've a query which might be out of the context of this development, but I would really appreciate if you could help me with that.

    I want to change the value / text in the buttons of 'Save', 'Cancel' and 'Crop' after a picture is taken from any Android device (samsung especially) and the result outcome as well.

    What happens in my app is, when you take a pic, you get the options to Save and Discard (I want to change the Save to Next). Once you Save it, you land on the Crop screen where you crop the intended image and press Crop. After the image is cropped, you again get the options to Crop or Cancel. At this stage, I want the options to be Done rather than the Crop and Cancel. Once Done is pressed, the cropped image is taken to my app screen.

    I tried looking for this in the Camera API, but couldn't get anything from there.

    Hope you could help me with this. Awaiting on your expert advice. Thanks!!

    1. Hi, this is android manufacture default feature, you can't override it. you need to implement your own surfaceview for custom requirement. you can try any cropping library too.

  63. Hi, thx for share your work. It's very interesting :)
    I test it now.
    I want after I've selected a picture (or taked a picture) to share this with differents services like G+/fb/email/sms/snapchat/twitter/other.
    I'm not abble to do this alone.
    Can you help me à little please ?

    I think I must use:
    "Intent sharingIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
    Uri screenshotUri = Uri.parse(path);

    sharingIntent.setType("image/png");
    sharingIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, screenshotUri);
    startActivity(Intent.createChooser(sharingIntent, "Share image using"));"

    But I don't kno how

  68. Nice Tutorial, but when I select an image from the gallery, the main activity is opened and no cropping option appears. What do I do ?

    1. can you see the image on main activity? If no it's mean you are getting null as data on your onActivityResult. For that I will suggest to use URI and set into Imageview.
