image_picker_type plugin for Flutter

A Flutter plugin for iOS and Android for picking images from the image library, and taking new pictures with the camera or galary and crop it.


First, add image_picker_type.


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.
  • NSCameraUsageDescription - describe why your app needs access to the camera. This is called Privacy - Camera Usage Description in the visual editor.
  • NSMicrophoneUsageDescription - describe why your app needs access to the microphone, if you intend to record videos. This is called Privacy - Microphone Usage Description in the visual editor.


API 29+

No configuration required - the plugin should work out of the box.

API < 29

Add android:requestLegacyExternalStorage="true" as an attribute to the <application> tag in AndroidManifest.xml. The attribute is false by default on apps targeting Android Q.


// show bottom sheet to select image option
    context: context,
    builder: (BuildContext context) {
      return ImagePickerHelper(
        isCropped: true,
        size: Size(300, 300),
        onDone: (file) {
          if (file == null) {
          } else {
           setState(() {
                 File file = file;
