Package description

What is image-size?

The image-size npm package is a module that provides a simple API to determine the dimensions of an image file. It supports a variety of image formats, including but not limited to JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, and WebP. The package can be used in both synchronous and asynchronous contexts and can handle local files as well as remote images via URLs.

What are image-size's main functionalities?

Synchronous image size retrieval

This feature allows you to synchronously get the dimensions of an image by providing the path to the image file.

const sizeOf = require('image-size');
const dimensions = sizeOf('path/to/image.jpg');
console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height);

Asynchronous image size retrieval

This feature allows you to asynchronously get the dimensions of an image by providing the path to the image file and a callback function.

const sizeOf = require('image-size');
sizeOf('path/to/image.jpg', (err, dimensions) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height);
});

Image size retrieval from a buffer

This feature allows you to get the dimensions of an image from a buffer, which is useful when you have the image data in memory rather than stored in a file.

const sizeOf = require('image-size');
const fs = require('fs');

fs.readFile('path/to/image.jpg', (err, data) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  const dimensions = sizeOf(data);
  console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height);
});

Programmatic Usage

npm install image-size --save

or

yarn add image-size

Synchronous

const sizeOf = require("image-size")
const dimensions = sizeOf("images/funny-cats.png")
console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height)

Asynchronous

const sizeOf = require("image-size")
sizeOf("images/funny-cats.png", function (err, dimensions) {
  console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height)
})

NOTE: The asynchronous version doesn't work if the input is a Buffer. Use synchronous version instead.

Also, the asynchronous functions have a default concurrency limit of 100 To change this limit, you can call the setConcurrency function like this:

const sizeOf = require("image-size")
sizeOf.setConcurrency(123456)

Using promises (nodejs 10.x+)

const { promisify } = require("util")
const sizeOf = promisify(require("image-size"))
sizeOf("images/funny-cats.png")
  .then((dimensions) => {
    console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height)
  })
  .catch((err) => console.error(err))

Async/Await (Typescript & ES7)

const { promisify } = require("util")
const sizeOf = promisify(require("image-size"))(async () => {
  try {
    const dimensions = await sizeOf("images/funny-cats.png")
    console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height)
  } catch (err) {
    console.error(err)
  }
})().then((c) => console.log(c))

Multi-size

If the target file is an icon (.ico) or a cursor (.cur), the width and height will be the ones of the first found image.

An additional images array is available and returns the dimensions of all the available images

const sizeOf = require("image-size")
const images = sizeOf("images/multi-size.ico").images
for (const dimensions of images) {
  console.log(dimensions.width, dimensions.height)
}

Using a URL

const url = require("url")
const http = require("http")

const sizeOf = require("image-size")

const imgUrl = "http://my-amazing-website.com/image.jpeg"
const options = url.parse(imgUrl)

http.get(options, function (response) {
  const chunks = []
  response
    .on("data", function (chunk) {
      chunks.push(chunk)
    })
    .on("end", function () {
      const buffer = Buffer.concat(chunks)
      console.log(sizeOf(buffer))
    })
})

You can optionally check the buffer lengths & stop downloading the image after a few kilobytes. You don't need to download the entire image

Disabling certain image types

const imageSize = require("image-size")
imageSize.disableTypes(["tiff", "ico"])

Disabling all file-system reads

const imageSize = require("image-size")
imageSize.disableFS(true)

JPEG image orientation

If the orientation is present in the JPEG EXIF metadata, it will be returned by the function. The orientation value is a number between 1 and 8 representing a type of orientation.

const sizeOf = require("image-size")
const dimensions = sizeOf("images/photo.jpeg")
console.log(dimensions.orientation)

Command-Line Usage (CLI)

npm install image-size --global

or

yarn global add image-size

followed by

image-size image1 [image2] [image3] ...

Credits

not a direct port, but an attempt to have something like dabble's imagesize as a node module.
