.Net imaging guide


Simon J.K. Pedersen

I’m currently working on a spare time project that is gonna involve quite a bit of image generation and manipulation, so I was doing a brief survey on available libraries to see if there was something more suited than System.Drawing for my purpose. In the process I stumbled upon a nice article about does and don’ts when working with Imaging on a web server in a .net environment. Most of it is common sense but it is always nice to have a check list to avoid stupid mistakes. You can read Nathanael Jones’ article, “20 Image Resizing Pitfalls” here.
