Websites, landing pages, social media profiles, and blogs – every digital channel requires vivid and convincing images. The higher the quality of the image, the better is the interface and design.
While there are many programming languages that are versatile enough to provide image processing, there is a lack of full-featured libraries supported on .NET Standard 2.0, which means one could lose the ability to write a single code for cross-platform support.
To solve this potential problem, GrapeCity’s Documents API line now features a complete imaging library called Documents for Imaging, .NET Edition. This has been dubbed GcImaging. With GcImaging, users can create, load, modify, and save images in the .NET Standard 2.0 applications with full support on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Users can also deploy them as FaaS with AWS Lambda, Azure functions, and more.
Through this API, you can load images in various formats including JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF and BMP. You can also apply advanced image processing techniques and rotate, crop, resize or convert images. You can also apply various effects on both grayscale and RGB images, as well as draw graphics or advanced text on the images. The API also allows for complete font handling and paragraph formatting of the text, allowing you to instantly add watermarks.
The application of GcImaging for .NET Standard 2.0 is very vast. It can be used for image processing even while migration to the cloud, to create high color depth images that can even be viewed on low color depth environments such as embedded systems. This is particularly helpful for medical imaging such as generating X-rays and ultrasound images, enhancing images for acoustic imaging, analyzing remotely-sensed images for research purposes, restoring and enhancing of surveillance imagery in forensic sciences, various e-commerce uses as well as for social media marketing.
This API, developed by GrapeCity Developer Solutions, has opened many new avenues for developers.
