  • Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin.Mac, Xamarin.Tizen and Windows (WinRT, UWP) support
  • Configurable disk and memory caching
  • Multiple image views using the same image source (url, path, resource) will use only one bitmap which is cached in memory (less memory usage)
  • Deduplication of similar download/load requests. (If 100 similar requests arrive at same time then one real loading will be performed while 99 others will wait).
  • Error and loading placeholders support
  • Images can be automatically downsampled to specified size (less memory usage)
  • Fluent API which is inspired by Picasso naming
  • SVG / WebP / GIF support
  • Image loading Fade-In animations support
  • Can retry image downloads (RetryCount, RetryDelay)
  • Android bitmap optimization. Saves 50% of memory by trying not to use transparency channel when possible.
  • Transformations support
    • BlurredTransformation
    • CircleTransformation, RoundedTransformation, CornersTransformation, CropTransformation
    • ColorSpaceTransformation, GrayscaleTransformation, SepiaTransformation, TintTransformation
    • FlipTransformation, RotateTransformation
    • Supports custom transformations (native platform ITransformation implementations)
