  • Memories supports resizing with Imager if it has to, but prefers Image::Imlib2, which is lightning-fast for image resizes. So much so that it generates the resized versions of pictures on the fly without noticable performance degradation.
    • I was recently planning to switch an app from ImageMagick to Imlib2 for thumbnails and wrote a benchmark to see how much improvement I would get. I just added Imager for comparison:

      Rate imager magick preview imlib2
      imager 4.92/s -- -2% -64% -82%
      magick 5.04/s 2% -- -63% -81%
      preview 13.5/s 174% 168% -- -50%
      imlib2 26.8/s 445% 432% 99% --

      So, Imlib2 is faster than even Imager's preview mode. Of course Imager does a lot of things that Imlib2 doesn't but for thumbnails, Imlib2 is the fastest.

      P.S. Why can't I use pre tags here?

      • Use <ecode> tags :-)

        Thanks - looks like I need to investigate Imlib2.

        I suppose working on Win32 is too much to ask.
