Image Generation

iOS and Android handles images differently. iOS use 1x..3x format and Android uses xxhdpi, hdpi format and so on. To overcome those quirks and seamlessly handle image handling for both OS, Smartface has auto image generation feature embedded in the Cloud IDE.

  • Create automated folder on /images directory if it doesn't exist

  • Upload your highest resolution image to /images/automated folder. It will compress and resize the image accordingly.

  • Right click on the image

  • Select Generate auto-resized images

  • Images for different resolutions for both platforms will be generated.

You can use generated images on your project, like images://yourimage.png. For further information about how to use images, refer the document below:

Supported Image Types

Only .png images are supported.

Alternate generate method

You can also use CLI tool sfImageProcessor to accomplish image generation.

Multiple image selection is not supported at the moment. For bulk image generation, you can use the script mentioned below or generate them one by one.

Generating Launch Image

  • Name of launch image must be either

    • LaunchImage.png

    • LaunchImage.ios.png

    • LaunchImage.android.png

  • If LaunchImage.png is being used, then launch images for both platforms are generated

  • LaunchImage.ios.png or LaunchImage.android.png is being used then launch images for that specific platform are generated

Use square sized launch image

Developers must edit original launch image to make it square sized so that our image processor module can perform resizing & cropping accordingly

The name of Launch Image is splash_image on Android.

For Launch image, to handle different screen sizes better on Android, the developer should create a 9-patch image. The steps are explained below.

It is recommended for your launch image to have at least 2208x2208 resolution
