Android download image and show in ImageView with black shadow

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

I want to download an image from my server from my android app and show it in an ImageView with a black layer on top with a certain amount of opacity.

I was able to do this on an iPhone very easily using a UIView and just placing it above a UIImageView and had the alpha set at .4. Is there a similar way to do this on Android? I have been reading quite a bit on this, most of the approaches online say to use selectors, etc. But this wont work when the image is downloaded from the server...
