      .setCount(3)                                                   //Number of images to restict selection count

      .setSpanCount(4)                                               //Span count for gallery min 1 & max 5

      .setPath("/pix/images");                                       //Custom Path For media Storage

Pix.start(MainActivity.this, options);

or just use with minimal config

Pix.start(context, Options.init().setRequestCode(100));

for fetching only a single picture.

Use onActivityResult method to get results

public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK && requestCode == RequestCode) {
        ArrayList<String> returnValue = data.getStringArrayListExtra(Pix.IMAGE_RESULTS);



include these items in colors.xml with custom color codes

    <color name="colorPrimaryPix">#075e54</color>
    <color name="colorPrimaryLightPix">#80075e54</color>

Permission Handling

include onRequestPermissionsResult method in your Activity/Fragment for permission selection

public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, String permissions[], int[] grantResults) {
    switch (requestCode) {
            // If request is cancelled, the result arrays are empty.
            if (grantResults.length > 0 && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                Pix.start(context, Options.init().setRequestCode(100));
            } else {
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Approve permissions to open Pix ImagePicker", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
