  •        193

libvips is a 2D image processing library. Compared to similar libraries, libvips runs quickly and uses little memory. libvips is licensed under the LGPL 2.1+. It has around 300 operations covering arithmetic, histograms, convolutions, morphological operations, frequency filtering, colour, resampling, statistics and others. It supports a large range of numeric formats, from 8-bit int to 128-bit complex. It supports a good range of image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, PNG, WebP, FITS, Matlab, OpenEXR, PDF, SVG, HDR, PPM, CSV, GIF, Analyze, DeepZoom, and OpenSlide. It can also load images via ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick.

libvips - A fast image processing library with low memory needs.

  •    C

libvips is a demand-driven, horizontally threaded image processing library. Compared to similar libraries, libvips runs quickly and uses little memory. libvips is licensed under the LGPL 2.1+. It has around 300 operations covering arithmetic, histograms, convolution, morphological operations, frequency filtering, colour, resampling, statistics and others. It supports a large range of numeric formats, from 8-bit int to 128-bit complex. Images can have any number of bands. It supports a good range of image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, PNG, WebP, FITS, Matlab, OpenEXR, PDF, SVG, HDR, PPM, CSV, GIF, Analyze, NIfTI, DeepZoom, and OpenSlide. It can also load images via ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick, letting it load formats like DICOM.

The typical use case for this high speed package is to convert large images of many formats to smaller, web-friendly JPEG, PNG images of varying dimensions.

ImageMagick - ImageMagick 7

  •    C

Use ImageMagick® o create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap images. It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over 200) including PNG, JPEG, GIF, HEIC, TIFF, DPX, EXR, WebP, Postscript, PDF, and SVG. Use ImageMagick to resize, flip, mirror, rotate, distort, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), magick (R), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically.

ImageMagick

  •    C++

ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves.

gulp-responsive - gulp-responsive generates images at different sizes

  •    Javascript

gulp-responsive depends on sharp. Sharp is one of the fastest Node.js modules for resizing JPEG, PNG, WebP and TIFF images. If you are using Mac OS then before installing gulp-responsive you should install the libvips library. Further information and instructions can be found in the sharp installation guide.

imgproxy - Fast and secure standalone server for resizing and converting remote images

  •    Go

imgproxy is a fast and secure standalone server for resizing and converting remote images. The main principles of imgproxy are simplicity, speed, and security. imgproxy can be used to provide a fast and secure way to replace all the image resizing code of your web application (like calling ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick, or using libraries), while also being able to resize everything on the fly, fast and easy. imgproxy is also indispensable when handling lots of image resizing, especially when images come from a remote source.

ImagesFromPDF

  •    

This application enables you to convert each page of a multipage PDF file into a separate image and then rename and make sequential the resulting images. Supported formats: PDF, BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PSD, PICT, OpenEXR, SGI, TGA, PNG and TIFF.

pixterm - Draw images in your ANSI terminal with true color

  •    Go

PIXterm shows images directly in your terminal, recreating the pixels through a combination of ANSI character background color and the unicode lower half block element. If image has transparency, an optional matte color can be used for background. Also, you can specify a dithering mode; in which case, the image is rendered using block elements with different shades, or using standard ASCII characters in the same way. In dithering mode, the matte color is used to fill the background of the blocks or characters. The conversion process runs fast because it is parallelized in all CPUs.

JPEGView - Image Viewer and Editor

  •    C++

JPEGView is a small and fast viewer/editor for JPEG, BMP, PNG, WEBP, GIF and TIFF images. On-the-fly image processing is provided - allowing to adjust typical parameters as sharpness, color balance, contrast and local under-/overexposure.

ruby-vips - Ruby extension for the libvips image processing library.

  •    Ruby

This gem provides a Ruby binding for the libvips image processing library. Programs that use ruby-vips don't manipulate images directly, instead they create pipelines of image processing operations building on a source image. When the end of the pipe is connected to a destination, the whole pipeline executes at once, streaming the image in parallel from source to destination a section at a time.

govips - A fast and robust image library for Go built on libvips

  •    Go

This package wraps the core functionality of libvips image processing library by exposing all image operations on first-class types in Go. Additionally, it exposes raw access to call operations directly, for forward compatibility. This library was inspired primarily based on the C++ wrapper in libvips.

Flyimg - Microservice to resize and crop images on the fly

  •    PHP

Image resizing, cropping and compression on the fly with the impressive MozJPEG compression algorithm. One Docker container to build your own Cloudinary-like service.You pass the image URL and a set of keys with options, like size or compression. Flyimg will fetch the image, convert it, store it, cache it and serve it. The next time the request comes, it will serve the cached version.

PikView - image viewer

  •    C++

PikView can read the following image types: png, jpeg, tiff, gif, netpbm (and via ImageMagick - eps, pict, dcx, pcx, mif, bmp, viff, pnm) Features: preloading, zooming, thumbnails, rapid image filing, fullscreen, printing, slideshow.

pytesseract - A Python wrapper for Google Tesseract

  •    Python

Python-tesseract is an optical character recognition (OCR) tool for python. That is, it will recognize and "read" the text embedded in images. Python-tesseract is a wrapper for Google's Tesseract-OCR Engine. It is also useful as a stand-alone invocation script to tesseract, as it can read all image types supported by the Python Imaging Library, including jpeg, png, gif, bmp, tiff, and others, whereas tesseract-ocr by default only supports tiff and bmp. Additionally, if used as a script, Python-tesseract will print the recognized text instead of writing it to a file.
