How to Implement Fresco Image Loading Library in Android with Kotlin?
Fresco is an image loading library that is widely used to load the images within the android applications with the help of image URLs. This library can be used to load the images with the image URL. Along with that, we can add a placeholder image for our image view so that when the image is loading from the URL we can display a placeholder image. We can also display an error image if the URL which we are using to load the image is broken. In this article, we will be building a simple application in which we will be loading an image from an image URL using the Fresco library.
