UIImage Category Methods

March 30, 2012

If you’ve Googled about resizing or cropping UIImage objects, chances are you’ve read Trevor Harmon’s blog post on the subject. Trevor’s solution is great, but unfortunately a little dated since changes to the iOS SDK have introduced a few bugs and compiler warnings if you try to use the original code written in 2009.

I’ve been maintaining my own copy for the past year or so, and I’ve finally gotten around to open sourcing it on GitHub. This fork includes a few of my own changes and bug fixes described in the comments of the original post. If you need to resize or crop an image check it out!
