From Remote URL

Download the photo file#

Although you can pass a URL directly to the editor, we strongly recommend that you manage to download the remote resource yourself. This allows you more control over where and how the download task is being executed and avoids potential problems around UI locking.

Here, we download a photo from a remote URL using coroutines and save it in a local file. While the download is running, we show a loader and dismiss it when the download is finished.

Start Editor#

Configure the LoadSettings to set the source to the Uri of the file. The PhotoEditorBuilder takes in the configured PhotoEditorSettingsList and starts the photo editor. The result is obtained in the onActivityResult() method when the editor exits.
