    Compared to react-native-image-zoom

    react-native-image-zoom functionality is similar, but there are several major differencies:

    • PhotoView is based on PhotoDraweeView which is the "PhotoView For Fresco". It works better, it supports several important callbacks out-of-box and it is, actually, recommended by Chris Banes, because his PhotoView (base for react-native-image-zoom) doesn't completely support Facebook Fresco;
    • PhotoView has more options like fadeDuration and minimumZoomScale/maximumZoomScale and more important callbacks;
    • PhotoView is written in the same manner as default React Image, and it supports most of the features Image has (the goal is to be fully compaitable with Image and support absolutely everything);
    • It is possible to use PhotoView as a container (currently iOS only)!

    Automatic installation

    Just two simple steps:

    npm install --save react-native-photo-view-modded
    react-native link react-native-photo-view-modded

    Manual installation

    public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {
        // ... 
        protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
          return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
              new MainReactPackage(),
              new PhotoViewPackage() // add this manager 
        // ... 


    1. Add this line to your podfile
      pod 'react-native-photo-view-modded', path: '../node_modules/react-native-photo-view-modded'
