Iphone – UIImage rounded corners


I try to get rounded corners on a UIImage, what I read so far, the easiest way is to use a mask images. For this I used code from TheElements iPhone Example and some image resize code I found. My problem is that resizedImage is always nil and I don't find the error…

- (UIImage *)imageByScalingProportionallyToSize:(CGSize)targetSize
    CGSize imageSize = [self size];
    float width = imageSize.width;
    float height = imageSize.height;

    // scaleFactor will be the fraction that we'll
    // use to adjust the size. For example, if we shrink
    // an image by half, scaleFactor will be 0.5. the
    // scaledWidth and scaledHeight will be the original,
    // multiplied by the scaleFactor.
    // IMPORTANT: the "targetHeight" is the size of the space
    // we're drawing into. The "scaledHeight" is the height that
    // the image actually is drawn at, once we take into
    // account the ideal of maintaining proportions

    float scaleFactor = 0.0; 
    float scaledWidth = targetSize.width;
    float scaledHeight = targetSize.height;

    CGPoint thumbnailPoint = CGPointMake(0,0);

    // since not all images are square, we want to scale
    // proportionately. To do this, we find the longest
    // edge and use that as a guide.

    if ( CGSizeEqualToSize(imageSize, targetSize) == NO )
        // use the longeset edge as a guide. if the
        // image is wider than tall, we'll figure out
        // the scale factor by dividing it by the
        // intended width. Otherwise, we'll use the
        // height.

        float widthFactor = targetSize.width / width;
        float heightFactor = targetSize.height / height;

        if ( widthFactor < heightFactor )
            scaleFactor = widthFactor;
            scaleFactor = heightFactor;

        // ex: 500 * 0.5 = 250 (newWidth)

        scaledWidth = width * scaleFactor;
        scaledHeight = height * scaleFactor;

        // center the thumbnail in the frame. if
        // wider than tall, we need to adjust the
        // vertical drawing point (y axis)

        if ( widthFactor < heightFactor )
            thumbnailPoint.y = (targetSize.height - scaledHeight) * 0.5;

        else if ( widthFactor > heightFactor )
            thumbnailPoint.x = (targetSize.width - scaledWidth) * 0.5;

    CGContextRef mainViewContentContext;
    CGColorSpaceRef colorSpace;

    colorSpace = CGColorSpaceCreateDeviceRGB();

    // create a bitmap graphics context the size of the image
    mainViewContentContext = CGBitmapContextCreate (NULL, targetSize.width, targetSize.height, 8, 0, colorSpace, kCGImageAlphaPremultipliedLast);

    // free the rgb colorspace

    if (mainViewContentContext==NULL)
        return NULL;

    //CGContextSetFillColorWithColor(mainViewContentContext, [[UIColor whiteColor] CGColor]);
    //CGContextFillRect(mainViewContentContext, CGRectMake(0, 0, targetSize.width, targetSize.height));

    CGContextDrawImage(mainViewContentContext, CGRectMake(thumbnailPoint.x, thumbnailPoint.y, scaledWidth, scaledHeight), self.CGImage);

    // Create CGImageRef of the main view bitmap content, and then
    // release that bitmap context
    CGImageRef mainViewContentBitmapContext = CGBitmapContextCreateImage(mainViewContentContext);

    CGImageRef maskImage = [[UIImage imageNamed:@"Mask.png"] CGImage];

    CGImageRef resizedImage = CGImageCreateWithMask(mainViewContentBitmapContext, maskImage);

    // convert the finished resized image to a UIImage 
    UIImage *theImage = [UIImage imageWithCGImage:resizedImage];

    // image is retained by the property setting above, so we can 
    // release the original

    // return the image
    return theImage;

Best Solution

If you are using a UIImageView to display the image you can simply do the following:

imageView.layer.cornerRadius = 5.0;
imageView.layer.masksToBounds = YES;

And to add a border:

imageView.layer.borderColor = [UIColor lightGrayColor].CGColor;
imageView.layer.borderWidth = 1.0;

I believe that you'll have to import <QuartzCore/QuartzCore.h> and link against it for the above code to work.
