It can use ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-image-picker.
But when I use function hasReadPermission(). I got an error.

[17:15:47]  console.warn: Native: tried calling ImagePicker.hasReadPermission, but the ImagePicker plugin is not 
            installed. 
[17:15:47]  console.warn: Install the ImagePicker plugin: 'ionic plugin add

You also need to add the npm package

npm install --save @ionic-native/image-picker


#3

Since you upgraded to Cordova 7, all packages have to get a package.json.
You can fork his repo and add a package.json
That’s what I did: https://github.com/Keko94/ImagePicker


#4

Assuming that you’re using Ionic v1.x and ngCordova, you need to use the following command

ionic plugin add https://github.com/Telerik-Verified-Plugins/ImagePicker

or

cordova plugin add https://github.com/Telerik-Verified-Plugins/ImagePicker

Notice that I’m using ionic plugin add instead of ionic cordova plugin add.

Ionic v1.x CLI it’s a wrapper for Cordova CLI, so you don’t need to mix two commands as one.

FWIW, I found that ImagePicker plugin buggy as hell. If you can handle only choosing one image at a time, I have had much better results with the Camera plugin.


#6

That command from ionic 3.2.0


#7

I’m not sure of that…


#8

But I’m sure about that. Because in APIs documents, They didn’t update command to lasted version.
