Gallery Saver for Flutter

Saves images and videos from network or temporary file to external storage. Both images and videos will be visible in Android Gallery and iOS Photos.

NOTE: If you want to save network image or video link, it has to contain 'http/https' prefix.

Installation

First, add gallery_saver as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

iOS

Add the following keys to your Info.plist file, located in <project root>/ios/Runner/Info.plist:

  • NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription - describe why your app needs permission for the photo library. This is called Privacy - Photo Library Usage Description in the visual editor.

Android

  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Permission for usage of external storage
