From Remote URL
PhotoEditor SDK supports loading filters from a remote URL, this can be a resource hosted by a photo hosting provider or your servers. Although the editor supports adding assets with remote URLs, we highly recommend that you manage the download of remote resources yourself, since this gives you more control over the whole process.
For each remote resource, we create a
File in the cache directory and download the remote resource. Since file handling and downloading are IO operations, we do this inside a coroutine using the IO dispatcher.
Here, we construct a
LutColorFilterAsset object using the file downloaded above. Additionally, we also specify the horizontal and vertical tiles as well as the texture size.
Add filter to
To use the filter, it must first be available in the SDK's backend. This is done by adding the filter to the
Create filter group#
In cases where we want to simplify navigation and discovery, we can group sets of related filters that will appear in a single folder in the filter tool.
FolderItem passing a unique identifier, a display name for the group and a thumbnail for the group folder.
Here, we configure
UiConfigFilter and add the custom
FolderItem we created above to the
filterList. Alternatively, we could have directly added the
FilterItem to the
filterList without creating a folder.
