A flutter plugin which provides Crop widget for cropping images.

Image Cropping Preview


crop_your_image provides flexible and custamizable Crop widget which can be placed at anyware in well designed apps.

As Crop is a simple widget displaying minimum cropping UI, Crop can be placed, for example, occupying entire screen, at top half of the screen, or even on dialogs or bottomsheets. It’s totally up to you!

Cropping method is also customizable. Fixing images and moving cropping area, fixing cropping area and zooming/panning images, or both are also configurable.

CropController enables apps to control cropping area outside of Crop. Any widgets or methods can configure cropping UI dynamically and perform cropping using the controller.

Build your own cropping UI!


  • Minimum UI restrictions
  • Flexible Crop widget which can be placed anywhere on your widget tree
  • CropController to control Crop
  • Zooming / panning images
  • Crop with rect or circle whichever you want
  • Fix aspect ratio
  • Configure the rect of cropping area programmatically

Note that this package DON’T

  • read / download image data from any storages, such as gallery, internet, etc.
  • resize, tilt, or other conversions which can be done with image package directly.
  • provide UI parts other than cropping editor, such as “Crop” button, “Preview” button or “Change Aspect Ratio” menu. Building UI is completely UP TO YOU!


crop_your_image is under developping and it’s still possible to happen broken change at any time. Any feedbacks and Pull Requests are welcome to make crop_your_image more handy and useful with less bugs.



Place Crop Widget wherever you want to place image cropping UI.

final _controller = CropController();

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Crop(
    image: _imageData, 
    controller: _controller,
    onCropped: (image) {
      // do something with image data 

Then, Crop widget will automatically display cropping editor UI on users screen with given image.

By creating a CropController instance and pass it to controller property of Crop, you can controll the Crop widget from your own designed Widgets.

For example, when you want to crop the image with current selected cropping area, you can just call _controller.crop() wherever you want, such like the code below.

  child: Text('Crop it!')
  onPressed: _cropController.crop,

Because _controller.crop() only kicks the cropping process, this method returns immediately without any cropped image data. You can obtain the result of cropping images via onCropped callback of Crop Widget.


All the properties of Crop and their usages are below.

final _controller = CropController();

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Crop(
    image: _imageData,
    controller: _controller,
    onCropped: (image) {
      // do something with image data 
    aspectRatio: 4 / 3,
    // initialSize: 0.5,
    // initialArea: Rect.fromLTWH(240, 212, 800, 600),
    initialAreaBuilder: (rect) => Rect.fromLTRB(
      rect.left + 24, + 32, rect.right - 24, rect.bottom - 32
    // withCircleUi: true,
    maskColor: Colors.white.withAlpha(100),
    radius: 20,
    onMoved: (newRect) {
      // do something with current cropping area.
    onStatusChanged: (status) {
      // do something with current CropStatus
    cornerDotBuilder: (size, edgeAlignment) => const DotControl(color:,
    interactive: true,
    // fixArea: true,
  • image is Image data whose type is UInt8List, and the result of cropping can be obtained via onCropped callback.
  • aspectRatio is the aspect ratio of cropping area. Set null or just omit if you want to crop images with any aspect ratio.
  • aspectRatio can be changed dynamically via setter of CropController.aspectRatio. (see below)
  • initialSize is the initial size of cropping area. 1.0 (or null, by default) fits the size of image, which means cropping area extends as much as possible. 0.5 would be the half. This value is also referred when aspectRatio changes via CropController.aspectRatio.
  • initialArea is the initial Rect of cropping area based on actual image data.
  • initialAreaBuilder is the callback to decide initial Rect of cropping area based on viewport of Crop itself. Rect of Crop is passed as an argument of the callback.
  • withCircleUi flag is to decide the shape of cropping UI. If true, aspectRatio is automatically set 1.0 and the shape of cropping UI would be circle. Note that this flag does NOT affect to the result of cropping image. If you want cropped images with circle shape, call CropController.cropCircle instead of CropController.crop.
  • baseColor is the color of the mask widget which is placed over the cropping editor.
  • maskColor is the color of the base color of the cropping editor.
  • radius configures the corner radius of cropping area.
  • onMoved callback is called when cropping area is moved regardless of its reasons. newRect of argument is current Rect of cropping area.
  • onStatusChanged callback is called when status of Crop is changed.
  • cornerDotBuilder is the builder to build Widget placed at corners. The builder passes size which widget must follow and edgeAlignment which indicates the position.
  • progressIndicator is used for showing preparing image to cropped is in progress. Nothing (SizedBox.shrink() actually) is shown by default.
  • interactive enables experimental feature of moving / zooming images.
  • fixArea is the flag if crop area should be fixed.

In addition, image, aspectRatio, withCircleUi, rect and area can also be changed via CropController, and other properties, such as baseColor, maskColor and cornerDotBuilder, can be changed by setState.
