Fast and efficient
Save memory and time with the lightweight API architecture. This imaging API handles even large TIFFs at top speed.
Provide top image processing needs
Meet all the needs of a basic image processor: Resize images, convert, create thumbnails, apply watermarks, rotate and flip images so you can align the images in your apps as you need.
Apply advanced image effects
Elevate your image apps! Convert normal images into high-quality detailed images in less time. Apply advanced dithering, thresholding effects, half-tone transparencies, resolution editing, grayscale conversion, effects on RGB images and file conversion, and more.
Add text and graphics to images
Dynamically enhance your images with logos, text, and more. With extensive font, layout, and advanced graphics support, you can convert your images into branding elements and make professional cover pages.
Full .NET Standard 2.0 support for Windows, Linux, and Mac
Develop for any .NET platform, for major operating systems, with a single code base. Use in your apps for .NET Core 2.0+, .NET Framework, Mono, Xamarin.iOS, and Xamarin.Android.
Deploy apps with image processing to the cloud
Be everywhere with cloud-based deployment—with NuGet and GcImaging, you can deploy to Azure, AWS, and AWS Lambda to create services that manage images on cloud, convert them to thumbnails, and add watermarks.
What can you do with an Imaging API?
Downscale images and apply various interpolation algorithims and create thumbnails of any size.
Additional imaging effects
Convert full-colored images to indexed images with palette, or apply color matrix and transparency masks to images
Draw text on images
Support advanced text layout engine with full font support, text processing, layout and formatting follows Unicode standards.
Advanced TIFF processing
Read and write TIFF frames quickly and easily. In addition, apply TIFF compression and color spaces and support tiled, planar, and differencing storage methods.
Extract EXIF metadata
Extract all EXIF metadata from images, including time taken, shutter speed, focal length, light value, location, flash, title, creator, date, description, and copyright.
