Let’s discuss how you can implement ImageZipper in your application


Add this to your root build.gradle file:

allprojects {
        repositories {
            maven { url "" }

Add this to your app module’s build.gradle file:

dependencies {
          compile 'com.github.amanjeetsingh150:ImageZipper:1.3'

Default Compressor

File imageZipperFile=new ImageZipper(this).compressToFile(actualFile);

Custom Compressor

File imageZipperFile=new ImageZipper(MainActivity.this)

OK Now Get me Bitmap!!

Bitmap b=new ImageZipper(MainActivity.this).compressToBitmap(actualFile);



If you want to use custom compressor:

Function Arguments
setMaxWidth(int maxWidth) Width required
setMaxHeight(int maxHeight) Height required
setMaxQuality(int quality) Quality required
setOrientation(int maxHeight) Orientation required(90,180)
setCompressFormat(Bitmap.CompressFormat compressFormat) Format required(PNG,JPEG,WEBP)

Cool !! Now I need Base64 Encoding and Decoding:

String base64=ImageZipper.getBase64forImage(imageZipperFile);
   Bitmap b=ImageZipper.decodeBase64(String base64);

It required permissions: Add this to your manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE">

Marshmallow and above requests for the permission on runtime.
