ImageScience is a clean and happy Ruby library that generates thumbnails – and kicks the living crap out of RMagick. Oh, and it doesn’t leak memory like a sieve. :) For more information including build steps, see http://seattlerb.rubyforge.org/


1.1.1 / 2007-03-08

  • 5 minor enhancements:
    • Added error handler that raises with information about what went wrong.
    • thumbnail is now pure ruby, everything now uses resize.
    • Produces cleaner JPEG files, with a small cost to file size/speed.
    • resize now uses Catmull-Rom spline filter for better quality.
    • resize copies existing ICC Profile to thumbnail, producing better color.
    • ICC Profile NOT copied for PNG as it seems to be buggy.
  • 1 bug fix:
    • Fixed rdoc
