Generate Thumbnail in Java using Thumbnailatorlibrary 

In our work there will be situation where we need to resize the image, generate thumbnails and so on. Users need to have little bit of image processing knowledge to achieve it. We have Java ImageIO APIs to achieve these functionalities. As said, we need to be aware of or spend time in learning these APIs. To help us, Thumbnailator library provides easy fluent style API and generates thumbnail in simple three lines of code.

Thumbnailator library is a wrapper to Java imageio API. It provides functionality to generate thumbnail, resize images. image conversion from one format to other. 

Maven Dependency:


 <dependency>
   <groupId>net.coobird</groupId>
      <artifactId>thumbnailator</artifactId>
      <version>[0.4, 0.5)</version>
 </dependency>

 Below code helps to generate thumbnail. The output can be of same format or different. 

 Thumbnails.of(new File(INPUT_PATH, "test1.png"))
       .size(250, 250)
       .toFile(new File(OUTPUT_PATH, "output.png"));

Thumbnails.of(new File(INPUT_PATH, "test1.png"))
       .size(250, 250)
       .toFile(new File(OUTPUT_PATH, "output.jpg"));

If you want to rotate the image

Thumbnails.of(new File(INPUT_PATH, "test1.png"))
     .size(250, 250)
     .rotate(90)
     .toFile(new File(INPUT_PATH, "output.png"));

To add watermark

Thumbnails.of(new File(INPUT_PATH, "test1.png"))
     .size(250, 250)
     .watermark(Positions.CENTER, ImageIO.read(new File(BASE_PATH, "watermark.png")), 0.5f)
     .toFile(new File(OUTPUT_PATH, "output.png"));

if you bunch of files in a directory and you want to convert generate thumbnail for all of them

Thumbnails.fromFiles(Arrays.asList(new File(INPUT_PATH).listFiles()))
     .size(250, 250)
     .asFiles(new File(OUTPUT_PATH), Rename.PREFIX_DOT_THUMBNAIL);

Thumbnailator is simple image processing library where you can use to do thumbnail related task.  It is not for heavy image processing but it can help you for smaller task.

Json Web Token shortly called as JWT becomes defacto standard for authenticating REST API. In a traditional web application, once the user login credentials are validated, loggedin user object will be stored in session. Till user logs out, session will remain and user can work on the web application without any issues. Rest world is stateless, it is difficult to identify whether the user is already authenticated.

Top 3 color quantization algorithms

  • color-optimization color-quantization algorithm

I have been writing on the desktop image processing application. At the version 1.0, I use the octree color quantization algorithm to reduce image to 256 colors, which is highly memory efficient with each pixel assigned the color at the center of the octree bin in which it falls. On the other hand, generates the palette using the distribution of colors in the image, but it does not consider the frequency of color. This means that if an image is composed of similar colors overall but has many different low-frequency colors or noise, octree's results can be very poor.
