Make Circular Image in React Native using Border Radius

Circular Image in React Native

This is an example to Make Circular Image in React Native using Border Radius. Round Shape / Circular Image in React Native is the extension of our previous post on React Native Image component. We will use the same Image component as we have used before in our Image Example but here we will use borderRadius style to make it in Round Shape.

In this example, we will show you how to make a Round Shape Image. A simple example of using Round Shape Image is to show user images in the user profile in our App. So let’s get started.

To Import Image component

import { Image } from 'react-native'

Render Using

1. Static Image Resources

  style={{width: 400, height: 400, borderRadius: 400/ 2}} 

require can also be used for including audio, video or document files in your project. Most common .mp3, .wav, .mp4, .mov, .html and .pdf. For the Image component, we will include image using require.

2. Network Requests for Images

    uri: ''
  style={{width: 400, height: 400, borderRadius: 400/ 2}} 

3. Uri Data Images

  style={{width: 60, height: 60, borderRadius: 60/ 2}} 

4. SVG Images

To use the SVG image from the image folder of your project

import {Image} from ‘react-native-remote-svg’ in your project

and install it from the terminal through

npm install react-native-remote-svg --save
<Image source = {require('./imagefolder/myImage.svg)} />

To Make a React Native App

Getting started with React Native will help you to know more about the way you can make a React Native project. We are going to use react native command line interface to make our React Native App.

If you have previously installed a global react-native-cli package, please remove it as it may cause unexpected issues:

npm uninstall -g react-native-cli @react-native-community/cli

Run the following commands to create a new React Native project

npx react-native init ProjectName

If you want to start a new project with a specific React Native version, you can use the --version argument:

npx react-native init ProjectName --version X.XX.X

Note If the above command is failing, you may have old version of react-native or react-native-cli installed globally on your pc. Try uninstalling the cli and run the cli using npx.

This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Code for Circular Image in React Native

Open App.js in any code editor and replace the code with the following code


//Make Circular Image in React Native using Border Radius

//import React in our code
import React from 'react';

//import all the components we are going to use
import {
} from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  return (
    <SafeAreaView style={{flex: 1}}>
      <View style={styles.container}>
          //borderRadius will help to make Round Shape
            width: 200,
            height: 200,
            borderRadius: 200 / 2
        <Text style={styles.textHeadingStyle}>
          About React

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    backgroundColor: '#e0dcdc',
  textHeadingStyle: {
    marginTop: 30,
    fontSize: 40,
    color: '#0250a3',
    fontWeight: 'bold',

export default App;

To Run the React Native App

Open the terminal again and jump into your project using.

cd ProjectName

1. Start Metro Bundler

First, you will need to start Metro, the JavaScript bundler that ships with React Native. To start Metro bundler run following command:

npx react-native start

Once you start Metro Bundler it will run forever on your terminal until you close it. Let Metro Bundler run in its own terminal. Open a new terminal and run the application.

2. Start React Native Application

To run the project on an Android Virtual Device or on real debugging device:

npx react-native run-android

or on the iOS Simulator by running (macOS only)

npx react-native run-ios
