Learn how to work with images and the camera in iOS Apps

Images bring a whole new level of excitement to an app. Without them, apps are dull and bland. In this course, you’ll not only learn to work with image files, but also how to access the camera on iOS devices to allow users to take pictures.

You’ll start by learning the fundamentals of working with images in Xcode. You’ll see how to import images and properly lay them out in your app storyboard files. Then you’ll learn how to access hardware on iOS devices to allow users to take images and save them.

We then bring everything together by creating a Collector app. This app allows a user to take an image of something, give it a proper name, and then use this as a database to reference the collection. This will reinforce what you previously learned and apply it to a fully functional practical app that uses Core Data to save images.

About the Author

Nick Walter, an iOS developer, has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 5 years. His involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 he was one of the 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within the community, he is also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads." He always wanted to transform brand-new ideas into reality, but growing up in a small town he had limited access to the required programming resources. This led to his early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, he adopted the best strategies and applied them while creating his courses. Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, he has devoted himself to the Apple documentation and any online resource that was available. Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, he created 5 iOS apps from scratch; they are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide.
