Features • Installation • Usage • Translation • License

GBHFacebookImagePicker is Facebook's album photo picker written in Swift, built to provide a simple way to pick picture into Facebook account. The picker provides a simple interface like the native iOS photo picker. This picker takes care of all authentication (from the web or with the native Facebook app) when necessary. If the photo's permission isn't accepted during the login, the picker prompts another permission's request.

Screenshot / Demo



  • [x] Login with Facebook SDK and display user's Albums or tagged photos
  • [x] Display pictures of each albums
  • [x] Handling denied Facebook photo's permission
  • [x] Multiple selection in one album
  • [x] Select all


In your terminal :

pod try GBHFacebookImagePicker

Or to run the example project manually, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.

Don't forget to replace the current Facebook App's ID with your own in the plist file (Open as > Source code). Like this :


Just in case, for public application (which can be use in the AppStore), you need to send your Facebook's App in review to have user's photos permission.


import GBHFacebookImagePicker
  • Then, implement the GBHFacebookImagePickerDelegate protocol :
// MARK: - GBHFacebookImagePicker Protocol

func facebookImagePicker(imagePicker: UIViewController,
                         successImageModels: [GBHFacebookImage],
                         errorImageModels: [GBHFacebookImage],
                         errors: [Error?]) {
    // Append selected image(s)
    // Do what you want with selected image 
    self.imageModels.append(contentsOf: successImageModels)

func facebookImagePicker(imagePicker: UIViewController, didFailWithError error: Error?) {
    print("Cancelled Facebook Album picker with error")

// Optional
func facebookImagePicker(didCancelled imagePicker: UIViewController) {
    print("Cancelled Facebook Album picker")

// Optional
func facebookImagePickerDismissed() {
    print("Picker dismissed")

The imageModel contain :

public class FacebookImage {
    public var image: UIImage? // The image, not nil only if image is selected
    public var normalSizeUrl: String? // Normal size picture url
    public var fullSizeUrl: String? // Full size source picture url
    public var imageId: String? // Picture id
  • Display picker :
let picker = FacebookImagePicker() 
picker.presentFacebookAlbumImagePicker(from: self, delegate: self) 


You can apply some customisation. To do it you can use the [FacebookPickerConfig structure](CUSTOMISATION.md).

Aditionals informations

  • About tagged photos : the tagged photos are displayed in an album (hide by default, see customisation section to display it) with the name "Photos of You". You can change this default name in the settings. The tagged album's cover is the facebook account profile picture, which are retrieved with a special call to the graph API.


FacebookImagePicker is currently written in english. If you need translation for the permission popup (or whatever thing), just add this line in your localized file :

"Pictures" = "<your_translation>";
"Oups" = "<your_translation>";
"You need to allow photo's permission." =  "<your_translation>";
"Allow" = "<your_translation>";
"Close" = "<your_translation>";
"Album(s)" = "<your_translation>";
"Photos of You" = "<your_translation>";
""No picture(s) in this album." = "<your_translation>";"
