ImageDraw comes with 50+ built-in ready to use Actions like drop shadows, glass reflections, perspective views, Polaroid, filmstrip, scaling, resizing, skewing, greyscale, negative, sepia, emboss, camera view, fading, feathering, Red-Eye Removal, and more. All of these Imaging Effectes are included with ImageDraw for ASP.NET and ImageDraw SDK for .NET packages.

AdjustBrightness

This action adjusts the brightness of an Element. Brightness is adjusted by specifying a level value which ranges from -100 (dark) to 100 (light). This action is typically used when correcting images that are too dark or too light.


AdjustContrast

This action adjusts the contrast of an Element. Contrast is adjusted by specifying a level value which ranges from -100 (dark) to 100 (light). This action is typically used when correcting images that are too dark or too light.


AdjustGamma

This action adjusts the Gamma correction value of an Element. Gamma correction is adjusted by specifying a value which ranges from -100 to 100.


AdjustHSL

This action adjusts the shade of a color, its hue; the intensity of a color, its saturation; or the lightness of a color of an Element.


AdjustHue

This action adjusts the Hue Channel of an Element. Hue Channel is adjusted by specifying an angle value which ranges from -180 to 180 degrees.


AdjustOpacity

This action adjusts the opacity of an Element. Opacity is adjusted by specifying an opacity level value which ranges from 0 (totally transparent) to 100 (totally opaque). This action is typically used when creating watermarks through an ImageElement, a TextElement or a ShapeElement.


AdjustSaturation

This action adjusts the saturation level of an Element. Saturation is adjusted by specifying a level value which ranges from -100 (dark) to 100 (light).


BitmapMask

This action performs alpha channel bitmap masking on an Element. Bitmap Masking means that the pixels of a mask object affect the visibility of the underlying object i.e. of the target element.


CameraView

This action simulates a camera view of an Element. In CameraView action, the camera point of view is defined by specifying two angles called Elevation & Azimuth which refer to the vertical and horizontal rotation angle of a camera's sight line relative to the center point of an element respectively.


ColorSubstitution

This action replaces one color (old color) with another (new color) on an Element.

ConvertToBlackWhite

This action converts an Element to black/white or monochrome. ImageDraw provides three different Dithering methods for black & white conversion including Simple Threshold, Pattern Diffusion and Floyd-Steinberg algorithm.


ConvertToGrayscale

This action converts an Element to grayscale.


ConvertToNegative

This action converts an Element to negative.


ConvertToSepia

This action converts an Element to sepia.


Crop

This action crops a rectangular or irregular section from an Element. The rectangular section to crop is specified by an x/y location and a given size. An irregular section is determined by a set of pair of points specified in the PathPoints property


DecorativeBorder

This action adds decorative border to an Element. The decorative border is specified by setting a border width, a dash style and a Fill.


DistortCorners

This action distorts an Element by changing the coordinates of the four corners (see figure) defined by the element's boundaries.


DropShadow

This action adds real drop shadows to an Element. ImageDraw makes it easy to apply drop shadows to any Element allowing you to specify the Shadow's Angle (the direction of the shadow and to simulate the angle of the light shining on the object); the color of the shadow; the distance of the shadow from the Element; the percentage of transparency in the shadow; and the sharpness of the shadow.


Emboss

This action embosses an Element. ImageDraw provides a flexible Emboss effect allowing you to control the bump height and the light angle and elevation. You can also generate a colored relief instead of emboss effect.


Fade

This action performs fading effect on an Element. Fading action/effect gradually fades a given area/region of the target Element into the background. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Fading effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the fade effect takes place. Given that, you can get fading effects like rectangles, ovals, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more.


Feather

This action performs feathering effect on an Element. Feathering blurs the edges of a given area/region on the target Element, blending it into the background. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Feathering effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the feather effect takes place. Given that, you can get feathering effects like rectangles, ovals, vertical and horizontal sides, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more.


Filmstrip

This action creates a Filmstrip representation of an Element. This action is typically used when showing VHS or DVD Covers at Entertainment Stores Websites or when showing photo albums at Photography-related or Personal Websites.


Flip

This action flips an Element across its vertical or horizontal axis.


FocalGrayscale

This action creates grayscale element with a colored focal point represented by a shape. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Focal Grayscale effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the FocalGrayscale effect takes place. Given that, you can get focal grayscale effects like rectangles, ovals, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more. You can specify whether the area/region for focus should fit the target element's size or be of a fixed size. In addition, reversing the effect is also supported.


FocalPixelate

This action creates pixelated element with a non-pixelated focal point represented by a shape. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Focal Pixelate effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the FocalPixelate effect takes place. Given that, you can get focal pixelate effects like rectangles, ovals, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more. You can specify whether the area/region for focus should fit the target element's size or be of a fixed size. In addition, reversing the effect is also supported.


FocalSoften

This action creates soften element with a focal point represented by a shape. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Focal Soften effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the FocalSoften effect takes place. Given that, you can get focal soften effects like rectangles, ovals, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more. You can specify whether the area/region for focus should fit the target element's size or be of a fixed size. In addition, reversing the effect is also supported.


FocalTint

This action creates tinted look of an element with a focal point represented by a shape. ImageDraw implements a very flexible and powerful Focal Tint effect allowing you to define an area/region represented by a shape on which the FocalTint effect takes place. Given that, you can get focal soften effects like rectangles, ovals, stars of any number of points, polygons of any number of sides and much more. You can specify whether the area/region for focus should fit the target element's size or be of a fixed size. In addition, reversing the effect is also supported.


GaussianBlur

This action softens the look of an Element. Gaussian Blur applies a weighted average of blur to each pixel producing a hazy effect. The only property for setting up when working with Gaussian Blur is called Radius which is the strength of the blur effect.


GlassTable (Reflection)

This action creates a glass table effect (a.k.a. Reflection effect) on an Element. ImageDraw makes it easy to apply reflection effect on any Element showing it as it was standing on a glass table.


Glow

This action adds glow effect to an Element. Glow settings include a color, an opacity value and the softness.


MailStamp

This action creates a mail stamp representation of an Element. This action might typically used when showing photos or stamps in Personal Websites for example.


MakeTransparent

This action makes color transparent for an Element. This action is typically used to convert a given color pixel to transparent. The conversion process takes a solid color -with a specified alpha channel value if any- and then converts all pixel matches on the Element to transparent. It also supports color tolerance for transparency. Color Tolerance represents the tonal range of colors that will be converted to transparent taking the specified color as starting point.

MuseumMatteFrame

This action adds shadowed matte frame to an Element. ImageDraw provides a flexible Museum Matte Frame effect allowing you to control the outside and inside border thikness and fill as well as shadow colors.

Each red-eye area can be set with a Threshold value or you can set up a single Threshold for all specified red-eye areas. The Threshold value is used for detecting red pixels.

RemovePixel

This action removes pixels from an Element and automatically resizes it.

RemoveTransparency

This action removes transparent pixels from an Element and automatically resizes it.

Resize

This action changes the size of an Element. This action is typically used when you need to reduce or enlarge the current Element size to a new one. One interested feature is LockAspectRatio which determine how Element's proportions are maintained.
