Image Gallery Saver plugin for Flutter

A Flutter plugin for iOS and Android for saving images to the image library.

Note: This plugin is still under development, and some APIs might not be available yet. Feedback welcome and Pull Requests are most welcome!


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


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.

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