Enhancements

Image 0.45.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.45.0 released on May 6th, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking changes

The implementations of Image.text/2 and Image.simple_text/2 have been simplified to use only the built-in Pango renderer. A bug in font sizing using the Pango renderer has also been fixed. As a result, there may be some small visual differences between text images generated by Image 0.45.0 compared to previous releases.

  • Image.text/2 now uses only the built-in Pango renderer for all use cases. SVG is not nhow used for any rendering in Image.text/2 or Image.simple_text/2. This gives a more consistent output and less ambiguity. However as a result, a small number of options are no longer available since they cannot be honoured by Pango:

    • :text_stroke_color

    • :text_stroke_width

  • The :autofit option to Image.text/2 is also removed. The autofit capability is now controlled by whether the :width and/or :height options are provided.

  • Some other options are now treated differently in Image.text/2:

    • :width and :height are now truly optional. If ommitted, the renderer will calculate the required image size based upon the other options. It is acceptable to specify :width and omit :height in which case the maximum width is fixed and the height is variable.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix warnings on upcoming Elixir 1.17.

  • A bug resulting in incorrect font sizing with using the Pango renderer has been fixed. Font sizing is now very similar to the sizing of the previously used SVG renderer.

Thanks to Cam Cook for the issues.

Image 0.43.1

This is the changelog for Image version 0.43.1 released on March 22nd, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Image.from_kino/2 and Image.from_kino!/2 now use the :file_ref field in the Kino input structure to identify the required image. This changed was added in Kino 0.11 which is therefore now a minimum version requirement. Thanks to @kevinschweikert for the PR. Closes #133.

  • Improve the thumbnailing guide. Thanks to @nathanl for the PR. Closes #132.

Image 0.43.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.43.0 released on February 27th, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking Changes

  • Image.erode/2 and Image.dilate/2 now take a radius parameter rather than a pixels parameter. Both functions have been refactored to allow a radius in the range 1..5 with a default of 1. The radius represents the dimension of the matrix used in the Vix.Vips.Operations.range/4 function that underpins dilation and erosion. As such they represent the approximate number of pixels eroded or dilated. In addition, this function now results in a single libvips operation. The previous implementation created n operations (where n was the value of the pixels param) that could result in a slow imaging pipeline and in some cases a segfault of the entire VM due to stack space exhaustion in libvips.

  • The signature for Image.linear_gradient/{1..3} has changed. The function now takes:

    • An image and an optional keyword list of options
    • A width and height as numbers and a keyword list of options
  • Image.dominant_color/2 now returns an {:ok, rgb_color} tuple rather than a [r, g, b] list. Use Image.dominant_color!/2 if only the color value return is required.

  • Image.map_pages/2 is deprecated in favour of Image.map_join_pages/2 to better reflect the intent of the function.

Enhancements

Image 0.42.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.42.0 released on January 23rd, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Deprecations

  • Image.interpretation/0 deprecated in favour of Image.colorspace/0. This is more orthogonal to the Image.to_colorspace/2 call and more in line with common image lexicons.

  • Image.convert_to_mask/1 is deprecated in favour of Image.covert_alpha_to_mask/1 which is more descriptive of the functions purpose.

  • Image.type/1 is deprecated in favour of Image.band_format/1. This function name expresses clearer intent.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix :rbg colorspace to be the correct name of :rgb.

Enhancements

Image 0.41.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.41.0 released on January 18th, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.YUV module that provides functions to convert between YUV and RGB image data. Thanks very much to @mat-hek for the collaboration. This module makes it easier to work with video image data which is typically in YUV encoded. The module supports 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 encoding in either of the BT601 or BT709 colorspaces.

Image 0.40.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.40.0 released on January 6th, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fix

  • Fix docs for Image.new/1 (the docs for Image.new/{2, 3} are correct).

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.join/2 which takes a list of images and joins them into a grid.

Image 0.39.3

This is the changelog for Image version 0.39.3 released on January 4th, 2024. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Image 0.39.1

This is the changelog for Image version 0.39.1 released on December 28th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fix

  • Adds support for phoenix_html ~4.0 in addition to ~3.2 and ~2.1. Thanks to @tapickell for the PR.

  • Don't include priv/models in the hex package.

Image 0.39.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.39.0 released on December 15th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking change

  • Image.open/2 no longer supports the :autorotate option. Instead, call Image.autorotate/1 after opening the image. There reasons are:
    • :autorotate is only supported by libvips for a few image types, not including png images. Hence the option cannot be used in a generalised way.
    • No signalling is done to indicate whether the image was actually rotated whereas Image.autorotate/1 does return this information.
    • Using autorotate: true does not appear to remove the orientation EXIF tag and therefore calling Image.autorotate/1 would result in a second rotation.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix finding the dominant color for images with an alpha band. Thansk to @mayel for the report. Closes #114.

Image 0.38.5

This is the changelog for Image version 0.38.5 released on December 7th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking change

  • The Image.embed/4 option :background is renamed to :background_color to better align with other functions.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix Image.Text.add_background_padding/2 when the base image doesn't already have an alpha band. Thanks to @tielur for the report. Closes #120.

  • Fix Image.embed/4 to default to x: :center, y: :center as stated in the documentation.

  • Fix Image.embed/4 to set extend_mode: :background if :background_color is specified.

Image 0.38.4

This is the changelog for Image version 0.38.4 released on November 9th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes Image.dhash/2. Thanks to @jhonathas for the report. Closes #118.

  • Fixes compiler warnings for Elixir 1.16.

Image 0.38.3

This is the changelog for Image version 0.38.3 released on October 17th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Due to the fix for this issue in vix, a fix is applied in Image.nx/2 to ensure correct operation. There should be no change to user code other than the requirement for the versions of image and vix to correctly match. This release of image requires vix version 0.23 to ensure compatibility.

Image 0.38.2

Bug Fixes

  • Fix extend_mode: :black color handling for images with an alpha band. Also fixes when the image is a single band image. Thanks to @icefoxen for reporting the issue. Closes #108.

Enhancements

  • Adds a squircle mask function and a squircle avatar shape option. Thanks to @gf3 for the PR.

  • Adds Image.map_pages/2 to execute a function for each page in a .webp or .gif image then reassemble the pages into a new image. This can be used to crop all the frames of an animated image. Thanks to @Mefgalm for the prompt to get this done. Eventually this function will be used by default for Image.crop/5 and Image.thumnail/3.

  • Adds Image.pages/1 to return the number of pages in an image. For normal images the result will be 1. For animated images it will be the number of frames in the animation.

  • Adds support for cropping multi-page images (like animated .webp and .gif images) in Image.crop/5.

  • Adds Image.Shape.circle/2, Image.Shape.ellipse/3 and Image.Shape.line/5 as well as their ! counterparts.

  • Allow pages: :all as a synonym for pages: -1 when opening an image.

Enhancements

Image 0.35.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.35.0 released on July 4th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking change

  • Removes Image.autolevel/1 which is replaced by Image.equalize(image, :each).

  • Removes Image.normalize/1 which is replaced by Image.equalize(image, :luminance).

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.equalize/2 which expands an image to fill the tone range. Equalization can be performed on all bands, on each band or only on the luminance band. This function replaces Image.normalize/1 and Image.autolevel/1.

  • Adds Image.contrast/2 to apply simple contrast adjustments to an image. The contrast parameter is provided as a float >= 0.0 with contrast less than 1.0 meaning reduce contrast and greater than 1.0 meaning increase contrast.

  • Adds Image.apply_tone_curve/2 which applies a tone curve to an image. This is typically used to affect overall image contrast.

  • Adds Image.local_contrast/2 which applies a Constrast Limited Adaptive histogram equalization (CLAHE) to improve local contrast in images.

  • Adds Image.sharpen/2 to apply sharpening to an image.

  • Adds Image.modulate/2 to adjust an image using brightness, saturation, hue rotation and lightness in a single call.

  • Adds Image.band_format/1 to return the band format of an image in Nx notation.

  • Adds Image.with_band_format/3 to cast an image to a new band format, execute a function on the cast image and then re-cast the image back to its original band format if the function returns successfully.

  • Adds Image.range/1 that returns the possible range of values for a pixel as a tuple in the form {min_value, max_value}.

  • Adds Image.reduce_noise/2 and Image.reduce_noise!/2 that applies a median filter to reduce salt and pepper noise in an image.

Image 0.34.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.34.0 released on June 24th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Corrects generating text images with Image.Text.text/2 whent the text_stroke_color and text_fill_color are black. Closes #87 (again).

  • Fixes using a combination of atom and numeric arguments to Image.compose/3. Thanks to @sodapopcan for the PR. Closes #97.

  • Removes a warning when testing without minio being installed. Thanks to @sodapopcan for the PR. Closes #95.

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.compare/3 to compare two images for similarity using a given metric (default is :ae or absolute error). The three metrics implemented in this release are :ae (absolute error which returns a value between 0.0 and 1.0), :mse (mean squared error) and :rmse (root mean squared error which returns a value between 0.0 and 1.0).

  • Adds Image.brightness/2 and Image.saturation/2 to adjust the image brightness and saturation by a percentage amount between 0.0 and 1.0. Also adds Image.brightness!/2 and Image.saturation!/2.

  • Adds hash_size as an argument to Image.hamming_distance/3. This is the size in bits of the returned hash. The default is 64. The size of the returned hash is only guaranteed to be this size if the :math.sqrt(hash_size) is an integer.

  • Adds :letter_spacing as an option to Image.Text.text/2. Thanks to @sodapopcan for the PR. Closes #97.

Image 0.33.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.33.0 released on June 2nd, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking Changes

  • Image.dhash/1 now returns a 64-bit hash (by default) rather than a 512-bit hash. The original algorithm is intended to return a 64-bit hash so this is both a breaking change and bug fix.

  • Fix generation of images from text when autofit: false (the default). In these cases the text image is generated from SVG. The original implementation operated on the basis that the image would be generated with a height and width necessary to contain the text of a given font size. The result is not consistent and is influenced by whether the text has ascenders or desenders. The new implementation creates an SVG container of a size large enough to contain the text at the given font-size and then trims away the background to produce the final result. Thanks to @ilesar for the report. Closes #86. As a result of this fix, existing text-generated images may not now be the same as previous releases.

Image 0.32.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.32.0 released on May 24th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Fix Image.Text.text/2 when the text fill color is black (within a tolerance). When the text image is created, Vix.Vips.Operation.find_trim/2 is called to trim the image assuming a black background. Since the fill color is also black, the resulting trim is 0 pixels wide and 0 pixels high. When then cropping the image, the crop fails because the crop size is invalid. The fix is to not crop if there is no trim detected. Thanks to @tielur for the report. Closes #84.

  • Fix specification for Image.compose/3 to remove dialyzer error (and include test case). Thanks to @tielur for the report. Closes #85.

  • Fix Image.add_alpha/2 when providing a "color". In fact the value should be an integer in the range 0..255 representing the level of transparency of the alpha band. The function spec, documentation and implementation are now changed to accept only an integer (or the atoms :opaque and :transparent).

Image packaging future

In a future release, Image will be split into several packages

  • :image which will retain all the core components of image transformation based upon vix and libvips.
  • :image_nx which will provide :nx interoperability (and will depend on :image)
  • :image_exif which will provide metadata support (and will depend on :image)
  • :image_classification which will provide image classification (and will depend on :image and :bumblebee)
  • :image_generation which will provide image generation (and will depend on :image and :bumblebee)
  • :image_detection which will provide object detection (and will depend on :image, :axon, :axon_onnx)

Enhancements

Image 0.26.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.26.0 released on March 12th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Breaking change

  • Image.avatar/3 is now Image.avatar/2. The size parameter is now the :size option. The default value of 180 pixels remains.

Enhancements

  • Image.avatar/2 takes a :shape option that is either :circle (the default) or :square. This allows the generation of either circular or square avatars.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix Image.open/2 for SVG binaries and add note to show that SVG images can be opened.

  • Fix Image.avatar/2 to square the image after thumbnailing but before applying any mask. This ensures a circular mask is centred on the thumbnailed image.

  • Fix Image.avatar/2 for image path parameters which no correctly flattens the image.

  • Fix Image.avatar!/2 to accept either an image or an image path.

Image 0.25.1

This is the changelog for Image version 0.25.1 released on March 1st, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Fix is_webp/1 guard and downcase all suffixes before validation. Thanks to @quentin-bettoum for the report and fix. Closes #64.

  • Fix Image.avatar/3 to flatten the source image before compositing with the mask. Thanks to @jarrodmoldrich for the report. Closes #63.

  • Fix Image.flatten/1 to only flatten if there is an alpha band.

Image 0.25.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.25.0 released on February March 1st, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Behavior Change

  • The default access mode for Image.open/2 is now access: :random in line with libvips native default. Although access: :sequential optimizes for many cases (especially with regard to memory) it resulted in poor developer experience since the error messages when trying to re-use a access: :sequential image are difficult to understand and very difficult to re-interpret in image.

Bug Fixes

  • Adds :heic and :avif suffixes to the list of valid suffixes for heif file formats. Thanks to @quentin-bettoum for the PR. Closes #50.

  • Allows specifying the option padding: 0 for Image.Text.text/2. Previously this only supported positive integers.

  • Fix Image.write/3 documentation. Thanks to @jeregrine for the PR. Closes #62.

Enhancements

  • Update README.md to include updated documentation for installing libvips with Vix.

  • Adds :x and :y options to Image.Text.text/2 which allows placing the text on its background in the specified location. :x can be specified as a non-negative integer or one of :left, :right or :center with the default being :center. :y can be specified as a non-negative integer or one of :top, :bottom or :middle with the default being :middle. Thanks to @severian1778 for the issue and collaboration. Closes #44.

  • Adds an option :effort to Image.write/3 for :png, :heif, :heic, :avif and :webp images that determines the amount of CPU effort permitted when compressing the image data. Thanks to @quentin-bettoum for the PR. Closes #45.

Image 0.24.1

Image 0.23.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.23.0 released on January 29th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.normalize/1 which normalizes an image by expanding the luminance of an image to cover the full dynamic range.

  • Adds Image.autolevel/1 which scales each band of an image to fit the full dynamic range. Unlike Image.normalize/1, each band is scaled separately.

  • Adds Image.erode/2 which erodes pixels from the edge of an image mask. This can be useful to remove a small amount of colour fringing around the edge of an image.

  • Adds Image.dilate/2 which dilates pixels from the edge of an image mask.

  • Adds Image.trim/2 which trims an image to the bounding box of the non-background area.

  • Adds Image.flatten/1 which flattens an alpha layer out of an image

  • Image.Options.Write.validate_options/2 now validates options appropriate to each image type in order to make validation more robust.

  • Adds :minimize_file_size option to Image.write/2 for JPEG and PNG files which if true will apply a range of techniques to minimize the size of the image file at the expense of time to save the image and potentially image quality.

Breaking change

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.Video.image_from_video/2 with support for :frame and :millisecond seek options. Seek options are only supported for video files, not video streams.

  • Adds Image.Video.seek/2 to seek the extraction point to the requested frame or millisecond. Seeking is supported for video files only, not video streams.

  • Adds support for capturing images from video streams (not only video files). For example, Image.Video.open(:default_camera). See the updated documentation for Image.Video.open/1. An image stream does not support seeking.

Image 0.20.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.20.0 released on January 8th, 2023. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

Enhancements

  • Add support for extracting frames from video as images using eVision. See Image.Video.

  • Supports vix upcoming prebuilt libvips. The prebuilt libvips may not include the FFT dependency so Image.skew_angle/1 and Image.fft/1 are only included if Vix.Vips.Operation.fft!/1 is available.

Image 0.15.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.15.0 released on Decmber 4th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

Enhancements

  • Add :autofit option to Image.Text.text/2. When set to true, text is rendered with Vix.Vips.Operation.text/2. The default, false, uses SVG rendering. There are pros and cons to both strategies. The main difference is that autofit: true will automatically size the text and perform line wrapping to fit the specified :width and :height. Thanks to @dmitriid for the suggestion!

  • Fix type specs for Image.write/3 when the destination is :memory. Thanks to @georgfaust for raising the issue.

  • Fixes the rbga color model for integer alpha values again (which are automatically cast to the appropriate float value). Thanks to @andreyuhai for your patience and collaboration while this was sorted out.

Image 0.14.3

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes the rbga color model for integer alpha values (which are automatically cast to the appropriate float value). Thanks to @andreyuhai for your patience and collaboration while this was sorted out.

  • Casts the color to the correct number of bands in Image.Draw functions. This will either add or remove an alpha band to the color of the shape being drawn to match the underlying image. Thanks to @andreyuhai for the PR. Closes #22.

Breaking change

Bug fixes

  • Fix Image.open/2 when opening JPEG images from a binary. Seems JPEG files agree on the <<0xff, 0xd8, 0xff>> header for the first three bytes. But not completely consistent with the following bytes.

  • Fix options for Image.Draw functions which are expected to be a map after validation (but were a keyword list).

Enhancements

Image 0.12.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.12.0 released on October 14th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

Image 0.11.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.11.0 released on October 8th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Now uses eVision version 0.1 or later from hex.pm

Image 0.10.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.10.0 released on October 5th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug Fixes

  • Since the mix build process does a File.cwd!/1 to the directory of each dependency we can't use the dirname of the dependency to decide whether to configure :evision or not. The strategy is now changed to configure :evision only if the environment CONFIGURE_EVISION is set. Note this is only relevant when developing :image itself. Consumers of the library should add :evision as a dependency manually in their application mix.exs as described in the readme. Thanks to @martosaur for the report. Closes #13.

Image 0.9.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.9.0 released on October 1st, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Image.open/2 supports opening .gif and .tif images from raw binary data in addition to the previous .jpeg, .png and .webp.

  • Add Image.shape/1

  • Add Image.interpretation/1

  • Add Image.type/1

  • Add initial support for eVision. In this release the function Image.QRcode.decode/1 is provided to decode images that contain a QRcode. See the eVision repository for installation instructions since this library is not yet on hex.pm.

  • Removed most dialyzer warnings. The remaining warnings require an update to Vix (a PR has been submitted).

Image 0.8.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.8.0 released on September 30, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Image.open/2 now accepts raw image data for the image types .jpeg, .png, .webp

Image 0.7.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.7.0 released on September 30, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Set the environment variable VIPS_BLOCK_UNTRUSTED at application start if it is not already set. As of libvips 8.13 this environment variable will cause libvips to not use any image loaders that are "unfuzzed".

  • Add mutable draw operations. These operations mutate an image directly and hence special care is taken to avoid race conditions. All mutuable operations are serialized via a GenServer. See the Image.Draw module. These functions are experimental for now pending additional testing.

  • Add Image.from_binary/2 to support creating an image from a raw binary.

  • Thanks to @timothyvanderaerden for the PR to support getting dialyzer under control. Work will continue on this over the next several releases.

Image 0.6.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.6.0 released on July 19th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Bug fixes

  • Don't attempt to compile code that refers to Plug.t if Plug is not configured. Thanks to @kwando. Closes #7.

Enhancements

  • Adds Image.dshash/1 to return a 512-bit image hash.

  • Adds Image.hamming_distance/2 to compare the similarity of two images or two image hashes.

  • Adds Image.radial_gradient/3 to great a radial gradient image. This could be used to composite over another image to add a vignette.

  • Adds Image.Math logical functions boolean_and/2, boolean_or/2, boolean_xor/2, boolean_lshift/2 and boolean_rshift/2. Also includes the ! versions.

  • Add operator use Image.Math overloads for image &&& (and), ||| (or), <<< (lshift) and >>> (rshift).

Image 0.5.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.5.0 released on June 24th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

Image 0.4.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.4.0 released on June 23rd, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements

  • Adds support for opening streaming images. This allows images to be streamed from File.stream!/3 or from any t:Stream.t/0 including those created from ExAws.S3 by ExAws.stream!/2.

  • Adds support writing streaming images. This allows images to be streamed as an enumerable which can then be consumed by Plug.Conn.chunk/2, by ExAws.S3.upload/3, File.stream/3 or any other function that processes stream resources. See the test/stream_image_test.exs for examples.

  • Adds a :memory option to Image.write/3. Instead of a path name or stream, use :memory if you'd like to return a binary form of an image in its formatted type. Note that this will run the image transformation pipeline resulting in the entire final image being loaded into memory. Therefore this option should be used sparingly since most use cases do not require this option. It is primarily added to facilitate passing images to other libraries in the Elixir ecosystem.

Image 0.3.0

This is the changelog for Image version 0.3.0 released on June 4th, 2022. For older changelogs please consult the release tag on GitHub

Enhancements
