          .setCount(3)                                                         //Number of images to restict selection count
          .setFrontfacing(false)                                                //Front Facing camera on start
          .setImageQuality(ImageQuality.HIGH)                                  //Image Quality
          .setPreSelectedUrls(returnValue)                                     //Pre selected Image Urls
          .setScreenOrientation(Options.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_PORTRAIT)           //Orientaion
          .setPath("/pix/images");                                             //Custom Path For Image Storage
   Pix.start(MainActivity.this, options);

or just use

          Pix.start(context, Options.init().setRequestCode(100));

for fetching only a single picture.

Use onActivityResult method to get results

    public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
                if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK && requestCode == RequestCode) {
                    ArrayList<String> returnValue = data.getStringArrayListExtra(Pix.IMAGE_RESULTS);



include these items in colors.xml with custom color codes

        <color name="colorPrimaryPix">#075e54</color>
        <color name="colorPrimaryLightPix">#80075e54</color>

Permission Handling

include onRequestPermissionsResult method in your Activity/Fragment for permission selection

   public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, String permissions[], int[] grantResults) {
           switch (requestCode) {
                   // If request is cancelled, the result arrays are empty.
                   if (grantResults.length > 0 && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                        Pix.start(context, Options.init().setRequestCode(100));
                    } else {
                       Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Approve permissions to open Pix ImagePicker", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
