The plugin creates the object window.imagePicker with the method getPictures(success, fail, options)

Example - Get Full Size Images (all default options):

window.imagePicker.getPictures(
    function(results) {
        for (var i = 0; i < results.length; i++) {
            console.log('Image URI: ' + results[i]);
        }
    }, function (error) {
        console.log('Error: ' + error);
    }
);

Example - Get at most 10 images scaled to width of 800:

window.imagePicker.getPictures(
    function(results) {
        for (var i = 0; i < results.length; i++) {
            console.log('Image URI: ' + results[i]);
        }
    }, function (error) {
        console.log('Error: ' + error);
    }, {
        maximumImagesCount: 10,
        width: 800
    }
);

Options

options = {
    // max images to be selected, defaults to 15. If this is set to 1, upon
	// selection of a single image, the plugin will return it.
	maxImages: int,
	
	// max width and height to allow the images to be.  Will keep aspect
	// ratio no matter what.  So if both are 800, the returned image
	// will be at most 800 pixels wide and 800 pixels tall.  If the width is
	// 800 and height 0 the image will be 800 pixels wide if the source
	// is at least that wide.
	width: int,
	height: int,
	
	// quality of resized image, defaults to 100
	quality: int (0-100)
};

Note for Android Use

The plugin returns images that are stored in a temporary directory. These images will often not be deleted automatically though. The files should be moved or deleted after you get their filepaths in javascript.
