    Project mention: How can I install gocv? | /r/golang | 2023-01-15

    - Installing from source gives me E: Unable to locate package libdc1394-22-dev

  • imaginary

    Project mention: Plugin to auto-convert uploaded images to WEBP? | /r/Wordpress | 2023-01-02

    WebP also frequently produces lower quality or blurry images: - https://wordpress.org/support/topic/images-going-blurry/ - https://github.com/h2non/imaginary/issues/240

  • imaging

    Imaging is a simple image processing package for Go

    Project mention: Seeking advice on monetizing an open-source Golang-based video transcoding project developed during university | /r/golang | 2023-06-04

    There are a number of projects using manipulation libraries like https://github.com/disintegration/imaging which is already MIT licensed, and then there are various transcoders which I am unfamiliar with, but you will want to consider if you add enough value to make use of those unimportant to the decision to pay.

  • pigo

    Fast face detection, pupil/eyes localization and facial landmark points detection library in pure Go.

    Project mention: [Question] - Any library that's similar to human js in terms of functionalities? | /r/golang | 2023-05-25
  • gg

    Go Graphics - 2D rendering in Go with a simple API.

    Project mention: I wrote a tool in Go to write Sequence Diagrams in Go | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-27

    The author explicitly says:

    > You don't need to download any dependencies such as plantUML or Graphviz, which is what most of the tools out there require and what was also my motivation to start this project. go-uml is using a 2D graphics engine written 100% in Go https://github.com/fogleman/gg

    So no, this is not a solution for these requirements.

  • bild

    Image processing algorithms in pure Go

    Project mention: Go Image Processing | /r/golang | 2022-12-17

    I don’t know about 6 lines, but here’s some short stuff from that algo lib that leverages std as much as possible https://github.com/anthonynsimon/bild/blob/master/transform/resize.go

  • ln

    3D line art engine.

  • gowitness

    🔍 gowitness - a golang, web screenshot utility using Chrome Headless

  • bimg

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

    Project mention: Go Image Converting | /r/golang | 2023-03-09

    h2non/bimg can handle both if the underlying libvips is compiled with support for both formats.

  • pt

    A path tracer written in Go.

  • svgo

    Go Language Library for SVG generation (by ajstarks)

  • picfit

    An image resizing server written in Go

  • smartcrop

    smartcrop finds good image crops for arbitrary crop sizes

  • gift

    Go Image Filtering Toolkit

  • imagick

    Go binding to ImageMagick's MagickWand C API

    Project mention: Golang library similar to Python's pillow | /r/golang | 2023-04-16

    If you want my opinion on which one to use, I would recommend this one, as there exist bindings for a huge amount of languages.

  • canvas

    Cairo in Go: vector to raster, SVG, PDF, EPS, WASM, OpenGL, Gio, etc. (by tdewolff)

    Project mention: Canvas vector graphics update: rich text and path boolean operation support | /r/golang | 2022-12-29

    I wanted to share a recent large update to https://github.com/tdewolff/canvas, which is a vector graphics library written in Go to create images, PDFs, SVGs, OpenGL, etc. using vector drawing operations. Especially I wanted to show two new exciting features:

  • go-opencv

    Go bindings for OpenCV / 2.x API in gocv / 1.x API in opencv

  • geopattern

    :triangular_ruler: Create beautiful generative image patterns from a string in golang.

  • stegify

    🔍 Go tool for LSB steganography, capable of hiding any file within an image.

  • govips

    A lightning fast image processing and resizing library for Go

    Project mention: Just In Time Image Optimization at Reddit Scale | /r/RedditEng | 2023-06-28

    We chose to use govips which is a cgo wrapper around the libvips image manipulation library. The majority of new development for services in our backend is written using baseplate.go. But Go is not an ideal choice for media processing as it cannot keep up with the performance of native code. The most widely used image-processing libraries like libmagick are primarily written in C or C++. Speed was a major factor in selecting libvips in order to keep latency low on CDN cache misses for images. In our tests, libvips was 3–4 times faster than libmagick on basic image processing operations. Content-aware smart cropping was implemented by porting smartcrop.js to Go. This is the only operation implemented in pure Go.
