This MagicScaler plugin wraps the GIFLIB native GIF codec.

Windows includes a GIF codec that is auto-discoverable by the MagicScaler pipeline. This plugin adds GIF support on non-Windows platforms.


A compatible native binary must be present for this plugin to function. For convenience, the NuGet package includes native binaries for Windows (x86, x64, and ARM64) and Linux (glibc x64 and ARM64).


Codec Registration

To register the codec, call the UseGiflib extension method from your CodecManager.Configure action at app startup. By default, the plugin will remove/replace the Windows GIF codec if it is present.

using PhotoSauce.MagicScaler;
using PhotoSauce.NativeCodecs.Giflib;

CodecManager.Configure(codecs => {

Using the Codec

Once registered, the codec will automatically detect and decode compatible images.

To encode GIF images, the encoder MIME type can be set on ProcessImageSettings:

var settings = new ProcessImageSettings();

Or the encoder can be selected by file extension on overloads accepting file paths:

MagicImageProcessor.ProcessImage(@"\img\input.jpeg", @"\img\output.gif", settings);
