JPEG, PNG, WebP, GIF, SVG, TIFF or raw pixel image data can be streamed into the object when null or undefined.
  • options Object? if present, is an Object with optional attributes.
    • options.density Number? integral number representing the DPI for vector images. (optional, default 72)
    • options.raw Object? describes raw pixel input image data. See raw() for pixel ordering.
    • options.create Object? describes a new image to be created.
      • options.create.width Number?
      • options.create.height Number?
      • options.create.channels Number? 3-4
      • options.create.background (String | Object)? parsed by the color module to extract values for red, green, blue and alpha.

Examples

sharp('input.jpg')
  .resize(300, 200)
  .toFile('output.jpg', function(err) {
    // output.jpg is a 300 pixels wide and 200 pixels high image
    // containing a scaled and cropped version of input.jpg
  });
// Read image data from readableStream,
// resize to 300 pixels wide,
// emit an 'info' event with calculated dimensions
// and finally write image data to writableStream
var transformer = sharp()
  .resize(300)
  .on('info', function(info) {
    console.log('Image height is ' + info.height);
  });
readableStream.pipe(transformer).pipe(writableStream);
// Create a blank 300x200 PNG image of semi-transluent red pixels
sharp(null, {
  create: {
    width: 300,
    height: 200,
    channels: 4,
    background: { r: 255, g: 0, b: 0, alpha: 128 }
  }
})
.png()
.toBuffer()
.then( ... );

Returns Sharp

format

An Object containing nested boolean values representing the available input and output formats/methods.

Examples

console.log(sharp.format());

Returns Object

versions

An Object containing the version numbers of libvips and its dependencies.

Examples

queue

Examples

sharp.queue.on('change', function(queueLength) {
  console.log('Queue contains ' + queueLength + ' task(s)');
});
