Node Jimp | Gaussian

Introduction
The Gaussian() function is an inbuilt function in Nodejs | Jimp which applies a true Gaussian blur to the image but its processing is quite slow in comparison to other Jimp functions.
Syntax:

gaussian(r, cb)

Parameter:

  • r – This parameter stores the pixel radius of the blur.
  • cb – This is an optional parameter which is invoked when compilation is complete.

Input Images:

Example 1:

code

//npm install --save jimp
//import jimp library to the environment
var Jimp = require('jimp');
  
//User-Defined Function to read the images
async function main() {
  const image = await Jimp.read
// invert function
  image.gaussian(5)
  .write('gaussian1.png');
}
  
main();
  console.log("Image Processing Completed");
