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.
