Its alright, but crashes often

Like I said its alright, but i crashes often. For example when you open an image from the SD-Card or for example something from the Saved Whatsapp profile picture folder. I dont know why as im not too good with java, but I would appreciate some help. Ill happily change my review to five stars if it works. Thank you.

Works perfectly, and helpful developer

I had a small problem implementing this, but the developer got back to me within an hour or so, and the problem was fixed within seconds!

Very easy to use.

Works great!

This feature is precisely what I needed for my Android game, and was pretty easy to implement.

This error only occures when you select an image from the Google Drive? Which Android version have you used?

Working like a charm.

Suggestion : instead URI would be nice the absolute path, or add one method to convert them.
- v1.1.1 is fantastic ! (and developer support excellent).

Dear S√°ndor, I have added a function to convert them to absoulte path.
If it is an online file, the cloud (Like Dropbox, Google Photos) will download it automatically to the user's phone.
To get the path, the extension need a new permission.
