android-intent

android-gallery

android-camera

android-intent-chooser

What I'm trying to do seems very simple, but after a few days of searching I can't quite figure it out.

I have an application that allows the user to select multiple(up to 5) images. I'm using an ImageView. When the user clicks on the ImageView, I'd like to allow them the option to

  1. Select the image from the gallery, or
  2. Use the camera to capture an image.

I started by using the ACTION_GET_CONTENT intent, and that works well for getting to the gallery. So then I tried using the ACTION_PICK_ACTIVITY intent to allow the user to choose camera or gallery:

Intent pickIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK_ACTIVITY);
Intent gallIntent=new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
gallIntent.setType("image/*"); 
Intent camIntent = new Intent("android.media.action.IMAGE_CAPTURE");
pickIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INTENT, camIntent);
pickIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INTENT, gallIntent)
pickIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TITLE, "Select Source");
startActivityForResult(pickIntent, IMAGE_SELECTOR);

But it appears I can only add one EXTRA_INTENT. The menu show up as expected, but the only options are Gallery and Files....no Camera).

Is there a better/easier way to do this that I'm missing? Thanks for any help.

How to launch a single Intent to select images from either the Gallery or the Camera, or any application registered to browse the filesystem.

Rather than creating a Dialog with a list of Intent options, it is much better to use Intent.createChooser in order to get access to the graphical icons and short names of the various 'Camera', 'Gallery' and even Third Party filesystem browser apps such as 'Astro', etc.

This describes how to use the standard chooser-intent and add additional intents to that.

private Uri outputFileUri;

private void openImageIntent() {

    // Determine Uri of camera image to save.
    final File root = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + File.separator + "MyDir" + File.separator);
    root.mkdirs();
    final String fname = Utils.getUniqueImageFilename();
    final File sdImageMainDirectory = new File(root, fname);
    outputFileUri = Uri.fromFile(sdImageMainDirectory);

    // Camera.
    final List<Intent> cameraIntents = new ArrayList<Intent>();
    final Intent captureIntent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
    final PackageManager packageManager = getPackageManager();
    final List<ResolveInfo> listCam = packageManager.queryIntentActivities(captureIntent, 0);
    for(ResolveInfo res : listCam) {
        final String packageName = res.activityInfo.packageName;
        final Intent intent = new Intent(captureIntent);
        intent.setComponent(new ComponentName(packageName, res.activityInfo.name));
        intent.setPackage(packageName);
        intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, outputFileUri);
        cameraIntents.add(intent);
    }

    // Filesystem.
    final Intent galleryIntent = new Intent();
    galleryIntent.setType("image/*");
    galleryIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);

    // Chooser of filesystem options.
    final Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(galleryIntent, "Select Source");

    // Add the camera options.
    chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, cameraIntents.toArray(new Parcelable[cameraIntents.size()]));

    startActivityForResult(chooserIntent, YOUR_SELECT_PICTURE_REQUEST_CODE);
}

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
        if (requestCode == YOUR_SELECT_PICTURE_REQUEST_CODE) {
            final boolean isCamera;
            if (data == null) {
                isCamera = true;
            } else {
                final String action = data.getAction();
                if (action == null) {
                    isCamera = false;
                } else {
                    isCamera = action.equals(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
                }
            }

            Uri selectedImageUri;
            if (isCamera) {
                selectedImageUri = outputFileUri;
            } else {
                selectedImageUri = data == null ? null : data.getData();
            }
        }
    }
}

Solution 2

You'll have to create your own chooser dialog merging both intent resolution results.

To do this, you will need to query the PackageManager with PackageManager.queryIntentActivities() for both original intents and create the final list of possible Intents with one new Intent for each retrieved activity like this:

List<Intent> yourIntentsList = new ArrayList<Intent>();

List<ResolveInfo> listCam = packageManager.queryIntentActivities(camIntent, 0);
for (ResolveInfo res : listCam) {
    final Intent finalIntent = new Intent(camIntent);
    finalIntent.setComponent(new ComponentName(res.activityInfo.packageName, res.activityInfo.name));
    yourIntentsList.add(finalIntent);
}

List<ResolveInfo> listGall = packageManager.queryIntentActivities(gallIntent, 0);
for (ResolveInfo res : listGall) {
    final Intent finalIntent = new Intent(gallIntent);
    finalIntent.setComponent(new ComponentName(res.activityInfo.packageName, res.activityInfo.name));
    yourIntentsList.add(finalIntent);
}

(I wrote this directly here so this may not compile)

Then, for more info on creating a custom dialog from a list see https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/dialogs.html#AlertDialog

Solution 3

I found this. Using:

galleryIntent.setType("image/*");
galleryIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);

for one of the intents shows the user the option of selecting 'documents' in Android 4, which I found very confusing. Using this instead shows the 'gallery' option:

Intent pickIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);

Solution 4

I also had this issue and what I did was create an AlertDialog and use the setItems() method along with the DialogInterface listener:

AlertDialog.Builder getImageFrom = new AlertDialog.Builder(Fotos.this);
getImageFrom.setTitle("Select:");
final CharSequence[] opsChars = {getResources().getString(R.string.takepic), getResources().getString(R.string.opengallery)};
getImageFrom.setItems(opsChars, new android.content.DialogInterface.OnClickListener(){

    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
        if(which == 0){
            Intent cameraIntent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
            startActivityForResult(cameraIntent, CAMERA_PIC_REQUEST);
        }else
            if(which == 1){
                Intent intent = new Intent();
                intent.setType("image/*");
                intent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
                startActivityForResult(Intent.createChooser(intent,
                    getResources().getString(R.string.pickgallery)), SELECT_PICTURE);
            }
        dialog.dismiss();
    }
});

I have merged some solutions to make a complete util for picking an image from Gallery or Camera. These are the features of ImagePicker util (also in a Github lib):

  • Merged intents for Gallery and Camera resquests.
  • Resize selected big images (e.g.: 2500 x 1600)
  • Rotate image if necesary

Screenshot:

Edit: Here is a fragment of code to get a merged Intent for Gallery and Camera apps together. You can see the full code at ImagePicker util (also in a Github lib):

public static Intent getPickImageIntent(Context context) {
    Intent chooserIntent = null;

    List<Intent> intentList = new ArrayList<>();

    Intent pickIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
            android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
    Intent takePhotoIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
    takePhotoIntent.putExtra("return-data", true);
    takePhotoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(getTempFile(context)));
    intentList = addIntentsToList(context, intentList, pickIntent);
    intentList = addIntentsToList(context, intentList, takePhotoIntent);

    if (intentList.size() > 0) {
        chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(intentList.remove(intentList.size() - 1),
                context.getString(R.string.pick_image_intent_text));
        chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, intentList.toArray(new Parcelable[]{}));
    }

    return chooserIntent;
}

private static List<Intent> addIntentsToList(Context context, List<Intent> list, Intent intent) {
    List<ResolveInfo> resInfo = context.getPackageManager().queryIntentActivities(intent, 0);
    for (ResolveInfo resolveInfo : resInfo) {
        String packageName = resolveInfo.activityInfo.packageName;
        Intent targetedIntent = new Intent(intent);
        targetedIntent.setPackage(packageName);
        list.add(targetedIntent);
    }
    return list;
}

This should take care of Tina's null outputFileUri issue:

private static final String STORED_INSTANCE_KEY_FILE_URI = "output_file_uri";

@Override
public void onSaveInstanceState( Bundle outState ) {
    super.onSaveInstanceState( outState );

    if ( outputFileUri != null ) {
        outState.putString( STORED_INSTANCE_KEY_FILE_URI, outputFileUri.toString() );
    }
}

@Override
public void onViewStateRestored( Bundle savedInstanceState ) {
    super.onViewStateRestored( savedInstanceState );

    if ( savedInstanceState != null ) {
      final String outputFileUriStr = savedInstanceState.getString( STORED_INSTANCE_KEY_FILE_URI );
      if ( outputFileUriStr != null && !outputFileUriStr.isEmpty() ) {
          outputFileUri = Uri.parse( outputFileUriStr );
      }
    }
}

Note: I'm using this code inside android.support.v4.app.Fragment your overridden methods might change depending on what Fragment/Activity version you're using.

Solution 7

You can create option dialog

Open Camera:

Intent cameraIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
                        cameraIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT,
                                MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI.toString());
                        if (cameraIntent.resolveActivity(getActivity().getPackageManager()) != null) {
                            startActivityForResult(cameraIntent, CAMERA_IMAGE);
                        }

Open Gallery:

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT <= 19) {
            Intent i = new Intent();
            i.setType("image/*");
            i.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
            i.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_OPENABLE);
            startActivityForResult(i, GALLARY_IMAGE);
        } else if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT > 19) {
            Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
            startActivityForResult(intent, GALLARY_IMAGE);
        }

To get selection result

@Override
    public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
        if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
            if (requestCode == GALLARY_IMAGE) {
                Uri selectedImageUri = data.getData();
                String selectedImagePath = getRealPathFromURI(selectedImageUri);
            } else if (requestCode == CAMERA_IMAGE) {
                Bundle extras = data.getExtras();
                Bitmap bmp = (Bitmap) extras.get("data");
                SaveImage(bmp);
            }
        }
    }

 public String getRealPathFromURI(Uri uri) {
        if (uri == null) {
            return null;
        }
        String[] projection = {MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA};
        Cursor cursor = getActivity().getContentResolver().query(uri, projection, null, null, null);
        if (cursor != null) {
            int column_index = cursor
                    .getColumnIndexOrThrow(MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA);
            cursor.moveToFirst();
            return cursor.getString(column_index);
        }
        return uri.getPath();
    }

Method to save captured image

 private void SaveImage(final Bitmap finalBitmap) {
        Thread t = new Thread(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                String root = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString();

                File myDir = new File(root + "/Captured Images/");
                if (!myDir.exists())
                    myDir.mkdirs();

                String fname = "/image-" + System.currentTimeMillis() + ".jpg";
                File file = new File(myDir, fname);
                try {
                    FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file);
                    finalBitmap.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, out);
                    out.flush();
                    out.close();
                    localImagePath = myDir + fname;
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            }


        });
        t.start();

    }

For those getting error on 4.4 upward while trying to use the Image selection can use the code below.

Rather than creating a Dialog with a list of Intent options, it is much better to use Intent.createChooser in order to get access to the graphical icons and short names of the various 'Camera', 'Gallery' and even Third Party filesystem browser apps such as 'Astro', etc.

You can try this :

To open Gallery :

private void browseImage() {

        try {
  Intent galleryIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
                    android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
  startActivityForResult(galleryIntent, GALLERY_IMAGE_PICK); //GALLERY_IMAGE_PICK it is a string
  } catch (Exception e) {}
     }

To open Camera :

 private void captureImage() {
    Intent intent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);

    fileUri = getOutputMediaFileUri(MEDIA_TYPE_IMAGE);

    intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, fileUri);

    // start the image capture Intent

    startActivityForResult(intent, CAMERA_CAPTURE_IMAGE_REQUEST_CODE);

}

Solution 12

This is simple by using AlertDialog and Intent.ACTION_PICK

    //camOption is a string array contains two items (Camera, Gallery)
    AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(CarPhotos.this);
    builder.setTitle(R.string.selectSource)
    .setItems(R.array.imgOption, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which)

     {

        if (which==0) {
        Intent intent = new Intent(this, CameraActivity.class);
        startActivityForResult(intent, REQ_CAMERA_IMAGE);               }

        if (which==1) {
        Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
        startActivityForResult(i, RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE);
            }

     }
            });
             builder.create();
             builder.show();

Building upon David's answer, my two pennies on the onActivityResult() part. It takes care of the changes introduced in 5.1.1 and detects whether the user has picked a single or multiple image from the library.

private enum Outcome {
    camera, singleLibrary, multipleLibrary, unknown
}

/**
 * Returns a List<Uri> containing the image uri(s) chosen by the user
 *
 * @param data      The data intent coming from the onActivityResult()
 * @param cameraUri The uri that had been passed to the intent when the chooser was invoked.
 * @return A List<Uri>, never null.
 */
public List<Uri> getPicturesUriFromIntent(Intent data, Uri cameraUri) {

    Outcome outcome = Outcome.unknown;

    if (data == null || (data.getData() == null && data.getClipData() == null)) {
        outcome = Outcome.camera;
    } else if (data.getData() != null && data.getClipData() == null) {
        outcome = Outcome.singleLibrary;
    } else if (data.getData() == null) {
        outcome = Outcome.multipleLibrary;
    } else {
        final String action = data.getAction();
        if (action != null && action.equals(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE)) {
            outcome = Outcome.camera;
        }
    }

    // list the uri(s) we got back
    List<Uri> uris = new ArrayList<>();
    switch (outcome) {
        case camera:
            uris.add(cameraUri);
            break;

        case singleLibrary:
            uris.add(data.getData());
            break;

        case multipleLibrary:
            final ClipData clipData = data.getClipData();
            for (int i = 0; i < clipData.getItemCount(); i++) {
                ClipData.Item item = clipData.getItemAt(i);
                uris.add(item.getUri());
            }
            break;
    }

    return uris;
}

Solution 14

Try this way

final CharSequence[] items = { "Take Photo", "Choose from Library",
            "Cancel" };

    AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
    builder.setTitle("Add Photo!");
    builder.setItems(items, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int item) {
            if (items[item].equals("Take Photo")) {
                Intent intent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
                File f = new File(android.os.Environment
                        .getExternalStorageDirectory(), "temp.jpg");
                intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(f));
                startActivityForResult(intent, REQUEST_CAMERA);
            } else if (items[item].equals("Choose from Library")) {
                Intent intent = new Intent(
                        Intent.ACTION_PICK,
                        android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
                intent.setType("image/*");
                startActivityForResult(
                        Intent.createChooser(intent, "Select File"),
                        SELECT_FILE);
            } else if (items[item].equals("Cancel")) {
                dialog.dismiss();
            }
        }
    });
    builder.show();

Then create onactivityresult method and do something like this

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
        if (requestCode == REQUEST_CAMERA) {
            File f = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory()
                    .toString());
            for (File temp : f.listFiles()) {
                if (temp.getName().equals("temp.jpg")) {
                    f = temp;
                    break;
                }
            }
            try {
                Bitmap bm;
                BitmapFactory.Options btmapOptions = new BitmapFactory.Options();

                bm = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(f.getAbsolutePath(),
                        btmapOptions);

                // bm = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(bm, 70, 70, true);
                ivImage.setImageBitmap(bm);

                String path = android.os.Environment
                        .getExternalStorageDirectory()
                        + File.separator
                        + "Phoenix" + File.separator + "default";
                f.delete();
                OutputStream fOut = null;
                File file = new File(path, String.valueOf(System
                        .currentTimeMillis()) + ".jpg");
                try {
                    fOut = new FileOutputStream(file);
                    bm.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 85, fOut);
                    fOut.flush();
                    fOut.close();
                } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                } catch (IOException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        } else if (requestCode == SELECT_FILE) {
            Uri selectedImageUri = data.getData();

            String tempPath = getPath(selectedImageUri, MainActivity.this);
            Bitmap bm;

            bm = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(tempPath, btmapOptions);
            ivImage.setImageBitmap(bm);
        }
    }

Selecting camera or gallery for image in Android

I had worked hard on Camera or gallery Image Selection, and created some util class for this work. With the use of these class 'Selecting image camera or gallery is too easy' it just took 5-10 mints of your development.

Step-1: Add these classes in your code.

ImagePickerUtils :- http://www.codesend.com/view/f8f7c637716bf1c693d1490635ed49b3/

BitmapUtils :- http://www.codesend.com/view/81c1c2a3f39f1f7e627f01f67be282cf/

ConvertUriToFilePath :- http://www.codesend.com/view/f4668a29860235dd1b66eb419c5a58b5/

MediaUtils :- https://codeshare.io/5vKEMl

We need to Add these Permission in menifest :

  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
  <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera" />
  <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera.autofocus" />

This class function (checkAndRequestPermissions) auto check the permission in Android-Marshmallow and Android - Nougat.

Step-2. Calling camera class for launching camera intent :

 //Create a global veriable .  
     private Uri mCameraUri;
     private static final int CAMERA_REQUEST_CODE = 100;

// Call this function when you wants to select or capture an Image.
       mCameraUri = ImagePickerUtils.createTakePictureIntent(this, CAMERA_REQUEST_CODE);

Step-3: Add onActivityResult in your Activity for receiving data from Intent

    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
        if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
            Uri fileUri = ImagePickerUtils.getFileUriOfImage(this, data, mCameraUri);
            try {
                Bitmap bitmap = null;
                if (CAMERA_REQUEST_CODE == requestCode) {
                    bitmap = new BitmapUtils().getDownsampledBitmap(this, fileUri, imageView.getWidth(), imageView.getHeight());
                }
                if (bitmap != null)
                imageView.setImageBitmap(bitmap);

            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
    }

I hope it helps you, If any one having any suggestion to improve these class please add your review in comments.

As per David Manpearl answer
https://stackoverflow.com/a/12347567/7226732

we just need to modify onActivityResult() like

 protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
        if (requestCode == YOUR_SELECT_PICTURE_REQUEST_CODE) {
            final boolean isCamera;
            if (data.getExtras() == null) {
                isCamera = true;
            } else {
                final String action = data.getAction();
                if (action == null) {
                    isCamera = false;
                } else {
                    isCamera = action.equals(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
                }
            }
            Uri selectedImageUri;
            if (isCamera) {
                selectedImageUri = fileUri;
                try {
                    Bitmap bitmap = MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(this.getContentResolver(), selectedImageUri);
                    Toast.makeText(CreateWaterType.this, "Image Saved!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    image_view.setImageBitmap(bitmap);

                } catch (IOException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                    Toast.makeText(CreateWaterType.this, "Failed!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                }

            } else {
                selectedImageUri = data == null ? null : data.getData();
                try {
                    Bitmap bitmap = MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(this.getContentResolver(), selectedImageUri);

                    Toast.makeText(CreateWaterType.this, "Image Saved!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    image_view.setImageBitmap(bitmap);

                } catch (IOException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                    Toast.makeText(CreateWaterType.this, "Failed!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

and set the capture or pick images in image view.
