In the past I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for working with online photo sharing sites such as GrabKit that allows you to retrieve photos from a number of sites (Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Instagram).

Here’s an open source photo picker control that duplicates the native iOS 7 UIImagePickerController control as closely as possible while adding a number of nice features called DZNPhotoPickerController.

DZNPhotopicker provides the same layout, and behavior with a similar API adding in features such as cropping (both square and circular), and search from multiple search providers (500px and Flickr are already implemented with more coming).

Here’s a set of images from the readme showing the search and cropping features in action:

You can find DZNPhotoPickerController on Github here.

A nice library if you already use a photo picker in your app, but are looking to add in some extra features.
