BlurImageView For Android, you can load your image progressively like Medium.

How it works?

  1. First it will show user a blurry image;
  2. At the same time, it starts to load the real image;
  3. once loaded, replace the blurry one automatically.

Playable apk

You can Download sample apk and play on your phone. Try it!

Why I do this?

This lib is inspired by Medium and users love this way of loading pics, Because a beautiful Blurry pic is always better than a blank area or an ugly thumbnail.

How to get it?

Simply add the dependency

dependencies {
	compile 'com.wingjay:blurimageviewlib:2.0.1'

How to use it?

    BlurImageView blurImageView = (BlurImageView) findViewById(;

This will load and blur a image.

  BlurImageView fullBlurImageView = (BlurImageView) findViewById(
  fullBlurImageView.setFullImageByUrl(blurImageUrl, normalImageUrl);

This will load two images progressively.


This can set the factor of blurry, default 8 - 10.

  blurImageView.setFailDrawable(Drawable failDrawable);
  blurImageView.setDefaultDrawable(Drawable defaultDrawable);

Configure your own drawable for loading failure & default. Use null to remove them.
