Nodejs | GM threshold() Function

The threshold() function is an inbuilt function in the GraphicsMagick library which is used to modify the image such that any pixel’s intensity value greater than the threshold is assigned the maximum intensity (white), or otherwise is assigned the minimum intensity (black). The function returns the true value on success.

Syntax:

threshold( value, flag )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • value: This parameter is used to specify the value of the threshold (it can be percentage).
  • flag: This parameter is used to specify that given value is bool value or not. By setting ‘true’, the pecentage mode is enabled.

Return Value: This function returns the GraphicsMagick object.
