    Cordova camera plugin allow user to select one picture at a time. However, we can show all pictures selected by gallery or captured by camera one by one by following code:


    view file:

    <div ng-controller=MultipleSelEx>
        <div class="list card">
              <div class="item item-divider" ng-click="oneImage()">Select one picture</div>
               <div class="item item-body">
                        <div ng-repeat="item in image">
                              <img ng-src="{{item}}" id="myImage" width="50" height="50" />
                   </div>
              </div>
        </div>
        <div class="list card">
              <div class="item item-divider" ng-click="mulImage()">select multiple pictures</div>
              <div class="item item-body>
                <div ng-repeat="item in images">
                          <img ng-src="{{item}}" id="myImage" width="50" height="50" />
                   </div>
              </div>
        </div>
    </div>
    


    JS file:

    angular.module(myApp', ['ngCordova'])
    .controller('MultipleSelEx', function($scope, $rootScope, $cordovaCamera ) {
        $scope.image = [];
        $scope.oneImage = function() { 
            var options = { 
                quality: 50, 
                destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.FILE&#95;URI,
                sourceType: Camera.PictureSourceType.PHOTOLIBRARY,
                targetWidth: 200, 
                 targetHeight: 200 
            };
             $cordovaCamera.getPicture(options).then(function(imageUri) {
                $scope.image.push(imageUri); 
             }, function(err) {
                 // alert(err); 
             });
         }
    })
    

    Although, we have option to select multiple pictures at one time from Gallery, for that we need to first install plugin cordova-imagePicker by following cli command:


    cordova plugin add https://github.com/wymsee/cordova-imagePicker.git

    and now add below code in controller:

    $scope.mulImage = function() {
        $scope.images = [];
        window.imagePicker.getPictures(
          function(results) {
            for (var i = 0; i < results.length; i++) {
              $scope.images.push(results[i]);
            }
            if(!$scope.$$phase) {
              $scope.$apply();
            }
          }, function (error) {
            console.log(error);
          }
        );
      };
    

    I hope, it will help you..
