Cutter

A Go library to crop images.

Build Status GoDoc

Cutter was initially developped to be able to crop image resized using github.com/nfnt/resize.

Usage

Read the doc on https://godoc.org/github.com/oliamb/cutter

Import package with

import "github.com/oliamb/cutter"

Package cutter provides a function to crop image.

By default, the original image will be cropped at the given size from the top left corner.

croppedImg, err := cutter.Crop(img, cutter.Config{
  Width:  250,
  Height: 500,
})

Most of the time, the cropped image will share some memory with the original, so it should be used read only. You must ask explicitely for a copy if nedded.

croppedImg, err := cutter.Crop(img, cutter.Config{
  Width:  250,
  Height: 500,
  Options: cutter.Copy,
})

It is possible to specify the top left position:

croppedImg, err := cutter.Crop(img, cutter.Config{
  Width:  250,
  Height: 500,
  Anchor: image.Point{100, 100},
  Mode:   cutter.TopLeft, // optional, default value
})

The Anchor property can represents the center of the cropped image instead of the top left corner:

croppedImg, err := cutter.Crop(img, cutter.Config{
  Width: 250,
  Height: 500,
  Mode: cutter.Centered,
})

The default crop use the specified dimension, but it is possible to use Width and Heigth as a ratio instead. In this case, the resulting image will be as big as possible to fit the asked ratio from the anchor position.

croppedImg, err := cutter.Crop(baseImage, cutter.Config{
  Width: 4,
  Height: 3,
  Mode: cutter.Centered,
  Options: cutter.Ratio&cutter.Copy, // Copy is useless here
})

About resize

This lib only manage crop and won't resize image, but it works great in combination with github.com/nfnt/resize
