NetVips benchmarks

The goal of this project is to demonstrate the performance of the NetVips library compared to other image processing libraries on .NET.

Be sure to check out the official benchmarks page: VIPS - Speed and Memory Use for complete demonstration of performance and memory usage characteristics of VIPS library.


Run on 23/04/18 with libvips 8.6.3, ImageMagick Q8 Beta and ImageSharp 1.0.0-beta0003.

¹ ImageSharp does not have TIFF support, so I only tested with JPEG files.

Performance test design

The project contains a Benchmark.cs file with specific scripts using various libraries available on .NET.

Each script is coded to execute the same scenario (see Scenario section).

See "Do it yourself" section for how to run benchmark scenario.


Test scenario was taken from Speed and Memory use page from libvips Home page.

Do it yourself

git clone

cd net-vips/tests/NetVips.Benchmarks
