Image with Rounded corners in Flutter

Nov 25, 2020 . 1 min Muhammed Mukhthar CM

Recently I was trying to build a Card with rounded corners in Flutter. Inside it, there was an Image. Just Like this. widget we want to build

My first attempt was to put our Image inside a container with a radius. So did I, and the result was not satisfying.

Container(
      height: 200,
        width: 350,
      decoration: (BoxDecoration(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(45),
      )),
      child: Image(
        fit: BoxFit.cover,
        image: NetworkImage(
            'https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1526749837599-b4eba9fd855e?ixlib=rb-1.2.1&ixid=eyJhcHBfaWQiOjEyMDd9&auto=format&fit=crop&w=1050&q=80'),
      ),
    )

The above Code gave me this.

image inside rounded container 😢
clearly, this is not the result we want.

After a fair time of Googling, I found the solution. It was to use ClipRRect instead of Container.

So the code,

ClipRRect(
      borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(45),
      child: Image(
        height: 200,
        width: 350,
        fit: BoxFit.cover,
        image: NetworkImage(
            'https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1526749837599-b4eba9fd855e?ixlib=rb-1.2.1&ixid=eyJhcHBfaWQiOjEyMDd9&auto=format&fit=crop&w=1050&q=80'),
      ),
    )

will give us this. image inside ClipRRect

And that’s the result we were hunting. ☺
