libvips - A fast image processing library with low memory needs

  •        161

libvips is a demand-driven, horizontally threaded image processing library. Compared to similar libraries, libvips runs quickly and uses little memory. 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.

bimg - Small Go package for fast high-level image processing powered by libvips C library

  •    Go

Small Go package for fast high-level image processing using libvips via C bindings, providing a simple programmatic API. bimg was designed to be a small and efficient library supporting common image operations such as crop, resize, rotate, zoom or watermark. It can read JPEG, PNG, WEBP natively, and optionally TIFF, PDF, GIF and SVG formats if libvips@8.3+ is compiled with proper library bindings. Lastly AVIF is supported as of libvips@8.9+. For AVIF support libheif needs to be compiled with an applicable AVIF en-/decoder.

Sharp - High performance Node.js image processing

  •    Javascript

The typical use case for this high speed Node.js module is to convert large images in common formats to smaller, web-friendly JPEG, PNG and WebP images of varying dimensions.Resizing an image is typically 4x-5x faster than using the quickest ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick settings.

image_processing - High-level image processing wrapper for libvips and ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick

  •    Ruby

Provides higher-level image processing helpers that are commonly needed when handling image uploads. This gem can process images with either ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick or libvips libraries. ImageMagick is a good default choice, especially if you are migrating from another gem or library that uses ImageMagick. Libvips is a newer library that can process images very rapidly (often multiple times faster than ImageMagick).

imaginary - Fast, simple, stateless HTTP microservice for high-level image processing with first-class support for Docker & Heroku

  •    Go

Fast HTTP microservice written in Go for high-level image processing backed by bimg and libvips. imaginary can be used as private or public HTTP service for massive image processing with first-class support for Docker & Heroku. It's almost dependency-free and only uses net/http native package without additional abstractions for better performance.Supports multiple image operations exposed as a simple HTTP API, with additional optional features such as API token authorization, gzip compression, HTTP traffic throttle strategy and CORS support for web clients.


GraphicsMagick

  •    C++

GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing. It provides a robust and efficient collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 88 major formats including important formats like DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PNM, and TIFF.

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.

vips - Go Bindings for Vips (a super fast image processor)

  •    Go

This package is powered by the blazingly fast libvips image processing library, originally created in 1989 at Birkbeck College and currently maintained by JohnCupitt. 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.

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.

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.

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.
