Android Take Image From Camera or Gallery Using EasyImage Library

In development process that I have done, there are one project that had features "open image" from camera or gallery for displayed on application. For example like change the profile picture, upload some image, etc.

Today I going to show you how to took image from camera or gallery using EasyImage Library. This library pretty easy to use. You don't need to write much code (like manual way), because this library has function that specific open image from camera and open from gallery.

Let's start the steps one by one ..

Library 


In this project, I used some libraries. Please compile the following libraries in build.gradle (Module : app) :

compile 'com.github.jkwiecien:EasyImage:1.3.1'
compile 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:3.7.0'

On your second gradle, put the following code in build.gradle(Project:ProjectName)
 
allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' } //add this line
    }
}
 
 EasyImage is the library for open image from camera or gallery, and Glide is a library that used to load image.

AndroidManifest


In order to able to access and take image/photo from Gallery, then you need a permission on your AndroidManifest.xml :

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

Layout


The layout is not to complicated, I just uses one layout that contains button load image, imageview for display image and textview for display the path of the image. Give name as activity_main.xml and paste the following code :
