React Native Photo Editor (RNPE)

? Image editor using native modules for iOS and Android. Inherit from 2 available libraries, ZLImageEditor (iOS) and PhotoEditor (Android)


The difference between the 2 platforms is huge – Be careful when using

This lib is for personal use, so if you customize your style or change something, Please fork this library and check the detailed documentation in the original library:

During the development of this package. I was thinking of moving it as part of an earlier library that I finished. If the support community for this library was large enough, I would have to dismiss this idea immediately.

Previously this library used Brightroom as the native library for iOS. If you want to use Brightroom you can check it out here.

yarn add @baronha/react-native-photo-editor


The Swift pod @baronha/react-native-photo-editor depends upon SDWebImage and SDWebImageWebPCoder, which do not define modules. To opt into those targets generating module maps (which is necessary to import them from Swift when building as static libraries), you may set use_modular_headers! globally in your Podfile, or specify :modular_headers => true for particular dependencies:

pod 'SDWebImage', :modular_headers => true
pod 'SDWebImageWebPCoder', :modular_headers => true

Then run cd ios/ && pod install

Don’t forget add file .swift in your project (and create bridging header file swift).


import PhotoEditor from "@baronha/react-native-photo-editor";

// ...

const result = await;

LUT (Hald image)

How to create cube data from LUT Image

We can download the neutral LUT image from lutCreator.js.

Hald Images

Hald is a graphical representation of 3D LUT in a form of a color table which contains all of the color gradations of 3D LUT. If Hald is loaded into editing software and a color correction is applied to it, you can use 3D LUT Creator to convert your Hald into 3D LUT and apply it to a photo or a video in your editor.
