Description

Designed to democratize image processing, ImageSharp brings you an incredibly powerful yet beautifully simple API built by the SixLabors team.

Compared to System.Drawing we have been able to develop something much more flexible, easier to code against, and much, much less prone to memory leaks. Gone are system-wide process-locks; ImageSharp images are thread-safe and fully supported in web environments.

Built against .Net Standard 1.1, the SixLabors ImageSharp libarary can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/IoT scenarios.

Packages

The ImageSharp library is made up of multiple packages:

  • SixLabors.ImageSharp
    • Contains the generic Image<TPixel> class, PixelFormats, Primitives, Configuration, and other core functionality
    • The IImageFormat interface, Jpeg, Png, Bmp, and Gif formats
    • Transform methods like Resize, Crop, Skew, Rotate - anything that alters the dimensions of the image
    • Non-transform methods like Gaussian Blur, Pixelate, Edge Detection - anything that maintains the original image dimensions

Code of Conduct

This project has adopted the code of conduct defined by the Contributor Covenant to clarify expected behavior in our community. For more information, see the .NET Foundation Code of Conduct.

API

Our API is designed to be simple to consume. Here's an example of the code required to resize an image using the default Bicubic resampler then turn the colors into their grayscale equivalent using the BT709 standard matrix.

On platforms supporting netstandard 1.3+

using SixLabors.ImageSharp;
using SixLabors.ImageSharp.Processing;
using SixLabors.ImageSharp.PixelFormats;

// Image.Load(string path) is a shortcut for our default type. 
// Other pixel formats use Image.Load<TPixel>(string path))
using (Image image = Image.Load("foo.jpg"))
{
    image.Mutate(x => x
         .Resize(image.Width / 2, image.Height / 2)
         .Grayscale());
    image.Save("bar.jpg"); // Automatic encoder selected based on extension.
}

Setting individual pixel values can be performed as follows:

using SixLabors.ImageSharp;
using SixLabors.ImageSharp.PixelFormats;

// Individual pixels
using (var image = new Image<Rgba32>(400, 400))
{
    image[200, 200] = Rgba32.White;
}

Rgba32 is our default PixelFormat, equivalent to System.Drawing Color. For advanced pixel format usage there are multiple PixelFormat implementations available allowing developers to implement their own color models in the same manner as Microsoft XNA Game Studio and MonoGame.

Manual build

If you prefer, you can compile ImageSharp yourself (please do and help!)

Alternatively, you can work from command line and/or with a lightweight editor on both Linux/Unix and Windows:

To clone ImageSharp locally, click the "Clone in [YOUR_OS]" button above or run the following git commands:

git clone https://github.com/SixLabors/ImageSharp

If working with Windows please ensure that you have enabled log file paths in git (run as Administrator).

git config --system core.longpaths true

Submodules

This repository contains git submodules. To add the submodules to the project, navigate to the repository root and type:

git submodule update --init --recursive

How can you help?

Please... Spread the word, contribute algorithms, submit performance improvements, unit tests, no input is too little. Make sure to read our Contribution Guide before opening a PR.
