A C# wrapper around the single-header image-loading library stb_image.h as well as qoi.h. It supports JPEG, PNG, QOI, BMP, GIF, HDR, PIC, PNM, PSD, and TGA (for some formats only a subset of features; consult stb_image.h for details).

You can find the source code of this package on GitHub.


Grab StbiSharp from nuget, then load an image as follows:

public void doSomethingWithImage()
    using (var stream = File.OpenRead("some-image.jpg"))
    using (var memoryStream = new MemoryStream())
        StbiImage image = Stbi.LoadFromMemory(memoryStream, 4);

        // Use image.Width, image.Height,
        // image.NumChannels, and image.Data.

If the encoded image is directly available in memory, no file stream needs to be used.


StbiSharp is available under the BSD 3-clause license. TL;DR you can do almost whatever you want as long as you include the original copyright and license notice in any copy of the software and the source code.
