The above package installs Image Editor dependencies which
are required to render the component in the Angular environment.

Adding Image Editor module

Import Image Editor module into Angular application(app.module.ts) from the package @syncfusion/ej2-angular-image-editor.

import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

// Importing ImageEditorModule from ej2-angular-image-editor package.
import { ImageEditorModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-image-editor';
import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  imports:      [ BrowserModule, ImageEditorModule ], // Declaration of ImageEditor module into NgModule.
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
})
export class AppModule { }

Adding Syncfusion Image Editor component

Modify the template in app.component.ts file to render the Angular Image Editor component.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `<!-- To render Image Editor. -->
              <div id="wrapperDiv" style="width:550px;height:350px;">
               <ejs-imageeditor></ejs-imageeditor>
              </div>`
})
export class AppComponent  { }

Adding CSS reference

Add Angular Image Editor component’s styles as given below in style.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-lists/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-image-editor/styles/material.css";

Running the application

Run the application in the browser using the following command:

ng serve

The following example shows a basic Image Editor component.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<!-- To render Image Editor. -->
              <div id="wrapperDiv" style="width:550px;height:350px;">
                <ejs-imageeditor></ejs-imageeditor>
              </div>`
})

export class AppComponent {

}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { ImageEditorModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-image-editor';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        ImageEditorModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);
