ImageSharp is a new, fully-featured, fully managed, cross-platform, 2D graphics API developed from the ground up for .NET Standard. We recommend ImageSharp as the default Redakt image processor.


Install the ImageSharp package with the NuGet package manager or the Package Manager Console.

PM> Install-Package Redakt.Imaging.ImageSharp

Service registration

Register ImageSharp services in the ConfigureServices() method of your project's Startup.cs file by adding an AddImageSharpProcessing() call to the Redakt builder instance. The order in which services are added to the Redakt builder is not important.

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    // ... framework and other services here

    var builder = services.AddRedakt();
    // ... other Redakt services

Configuration settings

No configuration is necessary.
