How To Pick Image From Gallery in Android App

Since few days I am working on an Android app and learning all the nitty gritty of its APIs. I will share few How-to stuffs that we frequently require in Android.

To start with let us see how to integrate Image Gallery with your App. Consider a requirement, you want your app user to select Image from the Gallery and use that image to do some stuff. For example, in Facebook app you can select Picture from your phone and upload directly to your profile.

Let us create an example with following requirement:

  1. First screen shows user with and Image view and a button to loan Picture.
  2. On click of “Load Picture” button, user will be redirected to Android’s Image Gallery where she can select one image.
  3. Once the image is selected, the image will be loaded in Image view on main screen.

So lets start.

Step 1: Create Basic Android Project in Eclipse

Create a Hello World Android project in Eclipse. Go to New > Project > Android Project. Give the project name as ImageGalleryDemo and select Android Runtime 2.1 or sdk 7.

Once you are done with above steps, you will have a basic hello world Android App.

Step 2: Change the Layout

For our demo, we need simple layout. One Image view to display user selected image and one button to trigger Image gallery.

Open layout/main.xml in your android project and replace its content with following:

File: res/layout/main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent">
	<ImageView
		android:id="@+id/imgView"
		android:layout_width="fill_parent"
		android:layout_height="wrap_content"
		android:layout_weight="1"></ImageView>
	<Button 
		android:id="@+id/buttonLoadPicture" 
		android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
		android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
		android:layout_weight="0" 
		android:text="Load Picture" 
		android:layout_gravity="center"></Button>
</LinearLayout>

So our Android’s app UI is very simple, One LinearLayout to organize Image view and Button linearly. Note that the id of Image view is imgView and that of Button is buttonLoadPicture.

Step 3: Android Java Code to trigger Image Gallery Intent

We now need to write some Java code to actually handle the button click. On click of buttonLoadPicture button, we need to trigger the intent for Image Gallery.

Thus, on click of button we will trigger following code:

Intent i = new Intent(
	Intent.ACTION_PICK, android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
	
	startActivityForResult(i, RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE);

Note how we passed an integer RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE to startActivityForResult() method. This is to handle the result back when an image is selected from Image Gallery.

So the above code will trigger Image Gallery. But how to retrieve back the image selected by user in our main activity?

Step 4: Getting back selected Image details in Main Activity

Once user will select an image, the method onActivityResult() of our main activity will be called. We need to handle the data in this method as follows:

@Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    	super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    	
		if (requestCode == RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE && resultCode == RESULT_OK && null != data) {
			Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
			String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

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

			int columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndex(filePathColumn[0]);
			String picturePath = cursor.getString(columnIndex);
			cursor.close();
						
			// String picturePath contains the path of selected Image
		}

Note that method onActivityResult gets called once an Image is selected. In this method, we check if the activity that was triggered was indeed Image Gallery (It is common to trigger different intents from the same activity and expects result from each). For this we used RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE integer that we passed previously to startActivityForResult() method.

Final Code

Below is the final code of ImageGalleryDemoActivity class.

package net.viralpatel.android.imagegalleray;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.database.Cursor;
import android.graphics.BitmapFactory;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.provider.MediaStore;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.ImageView;

public class ImageGalleryDemoActivity extends Activity {
    
	
	private static int RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE = 1;
	

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
        
        Button buttonLoadImage = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonLoadPicture);
        buttonLoadImage.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
			
			@Override
			public void onClick(View arg0) {
				
				Intent i = new Intent(
						Intent.ACTION_PICK,
						android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
				
				startActivityForResult(i, RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE);
			}
		});
    }
    
    
    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    	super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    	
		if (requestCode == RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE && resultCode == RESULT_OK && null != data) {
			Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
			String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

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

			int columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndex(filePathColumn[0]);
			String picturePath = cursor.getString(columnIndex);
			cursor.close();
			
			ImageView imageView = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.imgView);
			imageView.setImageBitmap(BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picturePath));
		
		}
    
    
    }
}

      Kevin, the way you are triggering Image Gallery is different from what I specified. I am using Intent.ACTION_PICK intent. Can you use the exact code snippet given in above example to trigger the Image Picker.

    • nikhil says:

      hey viral can u please send me a code for access images from sqlite db store in sdcard….???

    • Dendrox says:

      Hi Viral, Your code is working perfectly, thank you. but i wondered if there is anyway to redirect the image to a different xml layout. I want to access the gallery from main.xml but load it into main2.xml. Thanks

      • Viral Patel says:

        Hi Dendrox, I am not sure if I got your requirement clear. I would create an Activity that loads main2.xml and triggers that via Intent from Mainactivity. Also you can pass the image path as extra in intent. Not sure if this would help you.

  5. kevin says:

    can you pls identify the error.. thx a lot

    • Viral Patel says:

      I cannot figure out the issue with the given data :( Could you check if the Demo project is working in your android device? Also try to add few Logcat (Log.d();) statements in your code. You might be able to figure out where exactly you getting null object.

  40. Adrian says:

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting the tutorial. It helped me a lot in my current project. However, I believe I have spotted an error. My native gallery collects images from the camera, downloaded applications and other applications that allow one to take images. If I tried to display an image from the camera gallery, it works perfectly. If I try to use an image from other application (eg Twitter) I get NullPointerExpception error (bummer). I logged out the location of the file(s)

    working image –

    content://media/external/images/media/11028 

    not working image –

    content://com.google.android.gallery3d.provider/picasa/item/5719782242839264946 

    Any suggestions? Can we amend the code above so it could be used with any image regardless of its location?

    Thank you in advance

    • Alexia Winter says:

      The same problem. Need to find a universal solution for any path of images.

  41. Iyer says:

    Apparantely, this code works if you try to pick the photos from camera. If the user has a picasa account and if you try to pick the photo from picasa albums (which also shows up in gallery), it throws a null pointer exception in im.setImageBitmap(image); because your filepath is null.the path of the picasa album is different from the path of camera (local) pictures. So, for people who are searching for it in future,here is the link which might be useful to you.

  59. James says:

    Hey.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I just wanted to offer a suggestion for you in the future. I would add javadoc comments to the code you are developing. It makes it a lot easier for “us” to understand the code in the tutorial, and it offers you some insight into your code when you come back to it after an extended period of time.

    Also, it’s just good practice to document your code.

    Just a suggestion ;)

    Thanks for this tutorial though. If I wanted to use this with an application I would use a database column to save the image so that it is there whenever the user loads the app. What would be the best practice for this? Would it be just a matter of storing the string with the path directory?

  73. ireb says:

    Hi,
    This code does not show the picture in the imageview if you have
    android:targetSdkVersion=”16″ in the android manifest. That’s only thing I changed in your project….I did a lot testing and that’s the only change.

    Why is that?

    Thanks,

    The photo is not displaying in the imageview. Please help!

  80. Martin says:

    To show the image you can change the method onActivityResult in this way:

    @Override
    public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

    if (requestCode == RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE && resultCode == getActivity().RESULT_OK && null != data) {
    Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
    String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

    ImageView imageView = (ImageView) getView().findViewById(R.id.imgView);
    try {
    Bitmap bm = MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(getActivity().getContentResolver(), selectedImage);
    imageView.setImageBitmap(bm);
    } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
    } catch (IOException e) {
    }
    }
    }
