Android get image from gallery into ImageView

Simple pass Intent first:

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

And you will get picture path on your onActivityResult:

@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));
        }
    }

@parag’s code works great. But while loading some large images you may fail. You should use;

imageView.setImageBitmap(getScaledBitmap(picturePath, 800, 800));

instead of;

imageView.setImageBitmap(BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picturePath));

Here are my methods that you can use.

private Bitmap getScaledBitmap(String picturePath, int width, int height) {
    BitmapFactory.Options sizeOptions = new BitmapFactory.Options();
    sizeOptions.inJustDecodeBounds = true;
    BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picturePath, sizeOptions);

    int inSampleSize = calculateInSampleSize(sizeOptions, width, height);

    sizeOptions.inJustDecodeBounds = false;
    sizeOptions.inSampleSize = inSampleSize;

    return BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picturePath, sizeOptions);
}

private int calculateInSampleSize(BitmapFactory.Options options, int reqWidth, int reqHeight) {
    // Raw height and width of image
    final int height = options.outHeight;
    final int width = options.outWidth;
    int inSampleSize = 1;

    if (height > reqHeight || width > reqWidth) {

        // Calculate ratios of height and width to requested height and
        // width
        final int heightRatio = Math.round((float) height / (float) reqHeight);
        final int widthRatio = Math.round((float) width / (float) reqWidth);

        // Choose the smallest ratio as inSampleSize value, this will
        // guarantee
        // a final image with both dimensions larger than or equal to the
        // requested height and width.
        inSampleSize = heightRatio < widthRatio ? heightRatio : widthRatio;
    }

    return inSampleSize;
}

This is the easiest way to get image from gallery and crop ass well

step 1: StartActivity for result

imageUser.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(View v) {

            Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
                    MediaStore.Images.Media.INTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
            intent.setType("image/*");
            intent.putExtra("crop", "true");
            intent.putExtra("scale", true);
            intent.putExtra("outputX", 256);
            intent.putExtra("outputY", 256);
            intent.putExtra("aspectX", 1);
            intent.putExtra("aspectY", 1);
            intent.putExtra("return-data", true);
            startActivityForResult(intent, 1);

            }
    });

step 2:Handle the result

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if (resultCode != RESULT_OK) {
        return;
    }
    if (requestCode == 1) {
        final Bundle extras = data.getExtras();
        if (extras != null) {
            //Get image
            Bitmap ProfilePic = extras.getParcelable("data");
            imageUser.setImageBitmap(ProfilePic);
            TextView t=(TextView)findViewById(R.id.textoverimage);
            t.setText("image Selected");
        }
    }
