Cropping Images (Swift): Custom crop frame size

Hi everybody,

I'm looking to allow users to crop an image with dimensions 320x200. Using UIImagePickerController and enabling editing, I'm only allowed the standard 320x320 crop frame. I've looked all over and I've found a few libraries written in Objective-C (GKImagePicker) that will allow a custom frame. Wondering if anyone has come across a Swift library or accomplished something like this themselves in Swift. Please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thank you

Hey, Aaron

You can use Obj-C libraries with Swift you know? Just use a bridging header to import your statements. A simple google search would have found you the solution.

Thanks, Alex

Thanks, Alex - familiar with Google & with using bridging headers as I have one in my app. However, I am having issues and wondering if there was one that was entirely written in Swift already.

What's your issue, I can have a go at solving the issue for you.
