blend

Image processing library and rendering toolkit for Go. (WIP)

Installation:

This library is compatible with Go1.

go get github.com/phrozen/blend

Usage:

import "github.com/phrozen/blend"

Use this convenience function:

func BlendNewImage(dst, src image.Image, mode BlendFunc) image.Image {
  ...
}
// src is the top layer, dst is the bottom layer.

For example:

import "github.com/phrozen/blend"

// Read two images 'source' and 'destination' (image.Image)

// Blend source (top layer) into destination (bottom layer)
// using Color Burn blending mode.
img1 := blend.BlendNewImage(destination, source, blend.ColorBurn)


// Save img or blend it again applying another blend mode.
img2 := blend.BlendNewImage(img1, source, blend.Screen)

If you want to apply the Blend Mode to an image and modify it without returning a copy, you must provide a mutable image type, one that implements 'draw.Image' interface. Use this function.

func BlendImage(dst draw.Image, src image.Image, mode BlendFunc) {
  ...
}
// src is the top layer, dst is the bottom layer and image that will be applied to.

This function is faster as it does not copy the contents of the original image and applies the Blend Mode just to the intersection of both layers. Most images returned by the encoders of the standard library are already mutable as they implement the 'draw.Image' interface, but you will have to apply and interface/type assertion first.

(Note: jpeg decoder returns color images in YCbCr color mode that does not implement 'draw.Image', PNG decoder returns mostly RGBA family types and should work)

import "github.com/phrozen/blend"

// Read two images 'source' and 'destination' (image.Image)

dst, ok := destination.(draw.Image)
if ok {
  blend.BlendImage(dst, source, blend.ColorBurn)
  blend.BlendImage(dst, source, blend.Screen)
}

The package an be easily extended as it uses the standard library interfaces from 'image', 'image/draw' and 'image/color'.

type BlendFunc func(dst, src color.Color) color.Color

A BlendFunc is applied to each color (RGBA) of an image (although included blend modes does not use the Alpha channel atm). Just create your own BlendFunc to add custom functionality.

The library uses float64 internally for precision, math operations, and conversions to the 'image' interfaces.

At the moment it supports the following blending modes:

  • Darken
  • Multiply
  • Color Burn
  • Linear Burn
  • Darker Color

  • Lighten
  • Screen
  • Color Dodge
  • Linear Dodge
  • Lighter Color

  • Overlay
  • Soft Light
  • Hard Light
  • Vivid Light
  • Linear Light
  • Pin Light
  • Hard Mix

  • Difference
  • Exclusion
  • Substract
  • Divide

  • Hue
  • Saturation
  • Color
  • Luminosity

  • Add
  • Reflex
  • Phoenix

Notes:

  • Add, Reflex, and Phoenix modes are not in PSD.
  • Vivid Light produces different results than PSD, affects Hard Mix issue #2
  • Saturation, Color, and Luminosity modes produce different results than PSD, but the results are either identical to The GIMP or pretty similar. issue #3

Check the examples directory for more on blending modes.

More features to come.
