bimg Build Status GoDoc Go Report Card Coverage Status License

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.

bimg is able to output images as JPEG, PNG and WEBP formats, including transparent conversion across them.

bimg uses internally libvips, a powerful library written in C for image processing which requires a low memory footprint and it's typically 4x faster than using the quickest ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick settings or Go native image package, and in some cases it's even 8x faster processing JPEG images.

If you're looking for an HTTP based image processing solution, see imaginary.

bimg was heavily inspired in sharp, its homologous package built for node.js. bimg is used in production environments processing thousands of images per day.

v1 notice: bimg introduces some minor breaking changes in v1 release. If you're using, you can still rely in the v0 without worrying about API breaking changes.


Supported image operations

  • Resize
  • Enlarge
  • Crop (including smart crop support, libvips 8.5+)
  • Rotate (with auto-rotate based on EXIF orientation)
  • Flip (with auto-flip based on EXIF metadata)
  • Flop
  • Zoom
  • Thumbnail
  • Extract area
  • Watermark (using text or image)
  • Gaussian blur effect
  • Custom output color space (RGB, grayscale...)
  • Format conversion (with additional quality/compression settings)
  • EXIF metadata (size, alpha channel, profile, orientation...)
  • Trim (libvips 8.6+)


  • libvips 8.3+ (8.8+ recommended)
  • C compatible compiler such as gcc 4.6+ or clang 3.0+
  • Go 1.3+


  • libvips v8.3+ is required for GIF, PDF and SVG support.
  • libvips v8.9+ is required for AVIF support. libheif compiled with a AVIF en-/decoder also needs to be present.


go get -u

Follow libvips installation instructions:

Installation script

Note: install script is officially deprecated, it might not work as expected. We recommend following libvips install instructions.

Run the following script as sudo (supports OSX, Debian/Ubuntu, Redhat, Fedora, Amazon Linux):

curl -s | sudo bash -

If you want to take the advantage of OpenSlide, simply add --with-openslide to enable it:

curl -s | sudo bash -s --with-openslide

The install script requires curl and pkg-config.


libvips is probably the fastest open source solution for image processing. Here you can see some performance test comparisons for multiple scenarios:

if bimg.NewImage(newImage).Type() == "png" {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, "The image was converted into png")
Force resize

Force resize operation without perserving the aspect ratio:

buffer, err := bimg.Read("image.jpg")
if err != nil {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)

newImage, err := bimg.NewImage(buffer).ForceResize(1000, 500)

if size.Width != 1000 || size.Height != 500 {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, "Incorrect image size")

buffer, err := bimg.Read("image.jpg")
if err != nil {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)

newImage, err := bimg.NewImage(buffer).Colourspace(bimg.INTERPRETATION_B_W)

  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)

colourSpace, _ := bimg.ImageInterpretation(newImage)
if colourSpace != bimg.INTERPRETATION_B_W {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, "Invalid colour space")
Custom options

See Options struct to discover all the available fields

options := bimg.Options{
  Width:        800,
  Height:       600,
  Crop:         true,

// first crop image
_, err := image.CropByWidth(300)
if err != nil {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)

// then flip it
newImage, err := image.Flip()
if err != nil {
  fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)

// save the cropped and flipped image
bimg.Write("new.jpg", newImage)


Run the process passing the DEBUG environment variable

DEBUG=bimg ./app

Enable libvips traces (note that a lot of data will be written in stdout):

VIPS_TRACE=1 ./app

You can also dump a core on failure, as John Cuppit said:

                G_LOG_FLAG_RECURSION |
                G_LOG_FLAG_FATAL |
                G_LOG_LEVEL_ERROR |
                G_LOG_LEVEL_CRITICAL |
                G_LOG_LEVEL_WARNING );

Or set the G_DEBUG environment variable:

export G_DEBUG=fatal-warnings,fatal-criticals


See godoc reference for detailed API documentation.
