This project allowing you to create circular and rounded corner imageview in android through simplest way.

In circular imageview It uses a BitmapShader and does not:

  • create a copy of the original bitmap
  • use a clipPath (which is neither hardware accelerated nor anti-aliased)
  • use setXfermode to clip the bitmap (which means drawing twice to the canvas)


To make a circular ImageView add CircularImageView in your layout XML and add CircularImageView library in your project or you can also grab it through Gradle:


dependencies {

  compile '' 


<!-- <a> circular imageview xml</a> -->  <com.jackandphantom.circularimageview.CircleImage









android:id="@+id/circleImage" />

 <!-- <a> Rounded corner imageview xml </a> -->  <com.jackandphantom.circularimageview.RoundedImage





android:id="@+id/roundedImage3" /> 

You may use the following properties in your XML to change your CircularImageView.


To add shadow in your circular imageview you have to add property add_shadow= "true"

/* circular imageview xml */

  • app.border_width (Dimension) -> default 0dp
  • app.border_color (Color) -> default White
  • app.add_shadow (boolean) -> default false
  • app.shadow_color (Color) -> default Black
  • app.shadow_radius (float) -> default 10
  • app.shadow_radius (float) -> default 10

/* Rounded corner imageview xml */

  • app.rounded_radius (float) -> default 20


 CircleImage circleImage = (CircleImage) findViewById(;






RoundedImage roundedImage = (RoundedImage) findViewById(;


New Functionality

  • Now you can load high resolution images without getting outOfmemory exception, all you need to do is call mehtod * loadHighResolutionImage and pass the path of image as arguments
 CircleImage circleImage = (CircleImage) findViewById(;

  circleImage.loadHighResolutionImage(String filePath);

This method can be load image upto 2MB, 5MB, 10MB, i did'nt know the limitation that how much it can load.

This is my first library use it :) !!


  • 1.2.0

    • Now you can load high resolution images without getting outOfmemory exception (minsdkVersion = 13)
  • 1.1.0

    • Add shadow effect (minsdkVersion = 19)
  • 1.0.0

    • initial release (minsdkVersion = 19)
