To use this plugin, add image_picker as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

allprojects {
   repositories {
       maven { url "" }    // Enable getting dependencies from


class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  File imageFile;

  getImage() async {
    var _fileName = await ImagePicker.pickImage();
    setState(() {
      imageFile = _fileName;

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new Scaffold(
      appBar: new AppBar(
        title: new Text('Image Picker Example'),
      body: new Center(
        child: imageFile == null
            ? new Text('No image selected.')
            : new Image.file(imageFile),
      floatingActionButton: new FloatingActionButton(
        onPressed: getImage,
        tooltip: 'Pick Image',
        child: new Icon(Icons.add_a_photo),
