background

Set the background for the embed, flatten and extend operations. The default background is {r: 0, g: 0, b: 0, alpha: 1}, black without transparency.

Delegates to the color module, which can throw an Error but is liberal in what it accepts, clipping values to sensible min/max. The alpha value is a float between 0 (transparent) and 1 (opaque).

Parameters

  • rgba (String | Object) parsed by the color module to extract values for red, green, blue and alpha.

  • Throws Error Invalid parameter

Returns Sharp

tint

Tint the image using the provided chroma while preserving the image luminance. An alpha channel may be present and will be unchanged by the operation.

Parameters

Returns Sharp

greyscale

Convert to 8-bit greyscale; 256 shades of grey. This is a linear operation. If the input image is in a non-linear colour space such as sRGB, use gamma() with greyscale() for the best results. By default the output image will be web-friendly sRGB and contain three (identical) color channels. This may be overridden by other sharp operations such as toColourspace('b-w'), which will produce an output image containing one color channel. An alpha channel may be present, and will be unchanged by the operation.

Parameters

  • greyscale Boolean (optional, default true)

Returns Sharp

grayscale

Alternative spelling of greyscale.

Parameters

  • grayscale Boolean (optional, default true)

Returns Sharp

toColourspace

Set the output colourspace. By default output image will be web-friendly sRGB, with additional channels interpreted as alpha channels.

Parameters

  • colourspace String? output colourspace e.g. srgb, rgb, cmyk, lab, b-w ...

  • Throws Error Invalid parameters

Returns Sharp

toColorspace

Alternative spelling of toColourspace.

Parameters

  • colorspace String? output colorspace.

  • Throws Error Invalid parameters
