ImageDecoder

public final class ImageDecoder
extends Object implements AutoCloseable

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.graphics.ImageDecoder


A class for converting encoded images (like PNG, JPEG, WEBP, GIF, or HEIF) into Drawable or Bitmap objects.

To use it, first create a Source using one of the createSource overloads. For example, to decode from a File, call createSource(File) and pass the result to decodeDrawable(Source) or decodeBitmap(Source):

  File file = new File(...);
  ImageDecoder.Source source = ImageDecoder.createSource(file);
  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source);
  

To change the default settings, pass the Source and an OnHeaderDecodedListener to decodeDrawable(Source, OnHeaderDecodedListener) or decodeBitmap(Source, OnHeaderDecodedListener). For example, to create a sampled image with half the width and height of the original image, call setTargetSampleSize(2) inside onHeaderDecoded:

  OnHeaderDecodedListener listener = new OnHeaderDecodedListener() {
      public void onHeaderDecoded(ImageDecoder decoder, ImageInfo info, Source source) {
          decoder.setTargetSampleSize(2);
      }
  };
  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source, listener);
  

The ImageInfo contains information about the encoded image, like its width and height, and the Source can be used to match to a particular Source if a single OnHeaderDecodedListener is used with multiple Source objects.

The OnHeaderDecodedListener can also be implemented as a lambda:

  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source, (decoder, info, src) -> {
      decoder.setTargetSampleSize(2);
  });
  

If the encoded image is an animated GIF or WEBP, decodeDrawable will return an AnimatedImageDrawable. To start its animation, call AnimatedImageDrawable.start():

  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source);
  if (drawable instanceof AnimatedImageDrawable) {
      ((AnimatedImageDrawable) drawable).start();
  }
  

By default, a Bitmap created by ImageDecoder (including one that is inside a Drawable) will be immutable (i.e. Bitmap.isMutable() returns false), and it will typically have Config Bitmap.Config.HARDWARE. Although these properties can be changed with setMutableRequired(true) (which is only compatible with decodeBitmap(Source) and decodeBitmap(Source, OnHeaderDecodedListener)) and setAllocator(int), it is also possible to apply custom effects regardless of the mutability of the final returned object by passing a PostProcessor to setPostProcessor. A PostProcessor can also be a lambda:

  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source, (decoder, info, src) -> {
      decoder.setPostProcessor((canvas) -> {
              // This will create rounded corners.
              Path path = new Path();
              path.setFillType(Path.FillType.INVERSE_EVEN_ODD);
              int width = canvas.getWidth();
              int height = canvas.getHeight();
              path.addRoundRect(0, 0, width, height, 20, 20, Path.Direction.CW);
              Paint paint = new Paint();
              paint.setAntiAlias(true);
              paint.setColor(Color.TRANSPARENT);
              paint.setXfermode(new PorterDuffXfermode(PorterDuff.Mode.SRC));
              canvas.drawPath(path, paint);
              return PixelFormat.TRANSLUCENT;
      });
  });
  

If the encoded image is incomplete or contains an error, or if an Exception occurs during decoding, a DecodeException will be thrown. In some cases, the ImageDecoder may have decoded part of the image. In order to display the partial image, an OnPartialImageListener must be passed to setOnPartialImageListener. For example:

  Drawable drawable = ImageDecoder.decodeDrawable(source, (decoder, info, src) -> {
      decoder.setOnPartialImageListener((DecodeException e) -> {
              // Returning true indicates to create a Drawable or Bitmap even
              // if the whole image could not be decoded. Any remaining lines
              // will be blank.
              return true;
      });
  });

Inherited methods

Constants

ALLOCATOR_DEFAULT

added in API level 28
public static final int ALLOCATOR_DEFAULT

Use the default allocation for the pixel memory. Will typically result in a Bitmap.Config.HARDWARE allocation, but may be software for small images. In addition, this will switch to software when HARDWARE is incompatible, e.g. setMutableRequired(true) or setDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled(true).

Constant Value: 0 (0x00000000)

ALLOCATOR_HARDWARE

added in API level 28
public static final int ALLOCATOR_HARDWARE

Require a Bitmap.Config.HARDWARE Bitmap.

When this is combined with incompatible options, like setMutableRequired(true) or setDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled(true), decodeDrawable or decodeBitmap will throw an IllegalStateException.

Constant Value: 3 (0x00000003)

ALLOCATOR_SHARED_MEMORY

added in API level 28
public static final int ALLOCATOR_SHARED_MEMORY

Use shared memory for the pixel memory.

Useful for sharing across processes.

Constant Value: 2 (0x00000002)

ALLOCATOR_SOFTWARE

added in API level 28
public static final int ALLOCATOR_SOFTWARE

Use a software allocation for the pixel memory.

Useful for drawing to a software Canvas or for accessing the pixels on the final output.

Constant Value: 1 (0x00000001)

MEMORY_POLICY_DEFAULT

added in API level 28
public static final int MEMORY_POLICY_DEFAULT

Use the most natural Bitmap.Config for the internal Bitmap.

This is the recommended default for most applications and usages. This will use the closest Bitmap.Config for the encoded source. If the encoded source does not exactly match any Bitmap.Config, the next highest quality Bitmap.Config will be used avoiding any loss in image quality.

Constant Value: 1 (0x00000001)

MEMORY_POLICY_LOW_RAM

added in API level 28
public static final int MEMORY_POLICY_LOW_RAM

Save memory if possible by using a denser Bitmap.Config at the cost of some image quality.

For example an opaque 8-bit image may be compressed into an Bitmap.Config.RGB_565 configuration, sacrificing image quality to save memory.

Constant Value: 0 (0x00000000)

Public methods

close

added in API level 28
public void close ()

This value may be null.

isDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled

added in API level 28
public boolean isDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled ()

Return whether to treat single channel input as alpha.

This returns whether setDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled(boolean) was set to true. It may still return true even if the image has more than one channel and therefore will not be treated as an alpha mask.

Returns
boolean

isMutableRequired

added in API level 28
public boolean isMutableRequired ()

Return whether the decoded Bitmap will be mutable.

Returns
boolean

isUnpremultipliedRequired

added in API level 28
public boolean isUnpremultipliedRequired ()

Return whether the Bitmap will have unpremultiplied pixels.

Returns
boolean

setAllocator

added in API level 28
public void setAllocator (int allocator)

Choose the backing for the pixel memory.

This is ignored for animated drawables.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
allocator int: Type of allocator to use.

Value is ALLOCATOR_DEFAULT, ALLOCATOR_SOFTWARE, ALLOCATOR_SHARED_MEMORY or ALLOCATOR_HARDWARE.

setCrop

added in API level 28
public void setCrop (Rect subset)

Crop the output to subset of the (possibly) scaled image.

subset must be contained within the size set by setTargetSize(int, int) or the bounds of the image if setTargetSize was not called. Otherwise an IllegalStateException will be thrown by decodeDrawable/decodeBitmap.

NOT intended as a replacement for BitmapRegionDecoder.decodeRegion(). This supports all formats, but merely crops the output.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
subset Rect

This value may be null.

setDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled

added in API level 28
public void setDecodeAsAlphaMaskEnabled (boolean enabled)

Specify whether to potentially treat the output as an alpha mask.

If this is set to true and the image is encoded in a format with only one channel, treat that channel as alpha. Otherwise this call has no effect.

This is incompatible with ALLOCATOR_HARDWARE. Trying to combine them will result in decodeDrawable/ decodeBitmap throwing an IllegalStateException.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
enabled boolean

setMemorySizePolicy

added in API level 28
public void setMemorySizePolicy (int policy)

Specify the memory policy for the decoded Bitmap.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
policy int

Value is MEMORY_POLICY_DEFAULT or MEMORY_POLICY_LOW_RAM.

setMutableRequired

added in API level 28
public void setMutableRequired (boolean mutable)

Specify whether the Bitmap should be mutable.

By default, a Bitmap created by decodeBitmap will be immutable i.e. Bitmap.isMutable() returns false. This can be changed with setMutableRequired(true).

Mutable Bitmaps are incompatible with ALLOCATOR_HARDWARE, because Bitmap.Config.HARDWARE Bitmaps cannot be mutable. Attempting to combine them will throw an IllegalStateException.

Mutable Bitmaps are also incompatible with decodeDrawable, which would require retrieving the Bitmap from the returned Drawable in order to modify. Attempting to decode a mutable Drawable will throw an IllegalStateException.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
mutable boolean

setOnPartialImageListener

added in API level 28
public void setOnPartialImageListener (ImageDecoder.OnPartialImageListener listener)

Set (replace) the ImageDecoder.OnPartialImageListener on this object.

Will be called if there is an error in the input. Without one, an error will result in an Exception being thrown.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
listener ImageDecoder.OnPartialImageListener

This value may be null.

setPostProcessor

added in API level 28
public void setPostProcessor (PostProcessor postProcessor)

Modify the image after decoding and scaling.

This allows adding effects prior to returning a Drawable or Bitmap. For a Drawable or an immutable Bitmap, this is the only way to process the image after decoding.

If combined with setTargetSize(int, int) and/or setCrop(Rect), PostProcessor.onPostProcess(Canvas) occurs last.

If set on a nine-patch image, the nine-patch data is ignored.

For an animated image, the drawing commands drawn on the Canvas will be recorded immediately and then applied to each frame.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
postProcessor PostProcessor

This value may be null.

setTargetColorSpace

added in API level 28
public void setTargetColorSpace (ColorSpace colorSpace)

Specify the desired ColorSpace for the output.

If non-null, the decoder will try to decode into colorSpace. If it is null, which is the default, or the request cannot be met, the decoder will pick either the color space embedded in the image or the ColorSpace best suited for the requested image configuration (for instance sRGB for the Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888 configuration).

Bitmap.Config.RGBA_F16 always uses the scRGB color space. Bitmaps in other configurations without an embedded color space are assumed to be in the sRGB color space.

Only ColorSpace.Model.RGB color spaces are currently supported. An IllegalArgumentException will be thrown by decodeDrawable/ decodeBitmap when setting a non-RGB color space such as Lab.

The specified color space's transfer function must be an ICC parametric curve. An IllegalArgumentException will be thrown by the decode methods if calling ColorSpace.Rgb.getTransferParameters() on the specified color space returns null.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
colorSpace ColorSpace

setTargetSampleSize

added in API level 28
public void setTargetSampleSize (int sampleSize)

Set the target size with a sampleSize.

By default, the output size will match the size of the encoded image, which can be retrieved from the ImageInfo in onHeaderDecoded.

Requests the decoder to subsample the original image, returning a smaller image to save memory. The sampleSize is the number of pixels in either dimension that correspond to a single pixel in the output. For example, sampleSize == 4 returns an image that is 1/4 the width/height of the original, and 1/16 the number of pixels.

Must be greater than or equal to 1.

This has the same effect as calling setTargetSize(int, int) with dimensions based on the sampleSize. Unlike dividing the original width and height by the sampleSize manually, calling this method allows ImageDecoder to round in the direction that it can do most efficiently.

Only the last call to this or setTargetSize(int, int) is respected.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
sampleSize int: sampling rate of the encoded image.

Value is 1 or greater.

setTargetSize

added in API level 28
public void setTargetSize (int width, 
                int height)

Specify the size of the output Drawable or Bitmap.

By default, the output size will match the size of the encoded image, which can be retrieved from the ImageInfo in onHeaderDecoded.

This will sample or scale the output to an arbitrary size that may be smaller or larger than the encoded size.

Only the last call to this or setTargetSampleSize(int) is respected.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
width int: width in pixels of the output, must be greater than 0

Value is 1 or greater.

height int: height in pixels of the output, must be greater than 0

Value is 1 or greater.

setUnpremultipliedRequired

added in API level 28
public void setUnpremultipliedRequired (boolean unpremultipliedRequired)

Specify whether the Bitmap should have unpremultiplied pixels.

By default, ImageDecoder will create a Bitmap with premultiplied pixels, which is required for drawing with the View system (i.e. to a Canvas). Calling this method with a value of true will result in decodeBitmap(ImageDecoder.Source) returning a Bitmap with unpremultiplied pixels. See Bitmap.isPremultiplied(). This is incompatible with decodeDrawable; attempting to decode an unpremultiplied Drawable will throw an IllegalStateException.

Like all setters on ImageDecoder, this must be called inside onHeaderDecoded.

Parameters
unpremultipliedRequired boolean

Protected methods

finalize

added in API level 28
protected void finalize ()

Called by the garbage collector on an object when garbage collection determines that there are no more references to the object. A subclass overrides the finalize method to dispose of system resources or to perform other cleanup.

The general contract of finalize is that it is invoked if and when the Java™ virtual machine has determined that there is no longer any means by which this object can be accessed by any thread that has not yet died, except as a result of an action taken by the finalization of some other object or class which is ready to be finalized. The finalize method may take any action, including making this object available again to other threads; the usual purpose of finalize, however, is to perform cleanup actions before the object is irrevocably discarded. For example, the finalize method for an object that represents an input/output connection might perform explicit I/O transactions to break the connection before the object is permanently discarded.

The finalize method of class Object performs no special action; it simply returns normally. Subclasses of Object may override this definition.

The Java programming language does not guarantee which thread will invoke the finalize method for any given object. It is guaranteed, however, that the thread that invokes finalize will not be holding any user-visible synchronization locks when finalize is invoked. If an uncaught exception is thrown by the finalize method, the exception is ignored and finalization of that object terminates.

After the finalize method has been invoked for an object, no further action is taken until the Java virtual machine has again determined that there is no longer any means by which this object can be accessed by any thread that has not yet died, including possible actions by other objects or classes which are ready to be finalized, at which point the object may be discarded.

The finalize method is never invoked more than once by a Java virtual machine for any given object.

Any exception thrown by the finalize method causes the finalization of this object to be halted, but is otherwise ignored.

Throws
Throwable
