package stackblur

import ""

stackblur-go is a Go port of the Stackblur algorithm.

Stackblur is a compromise between Gaussian blur and Box blur, but it creates much better looking blurs than Box blur and it is ~7x faster than Gaussian blur.

The API is very simple and easy to integrate into the project. There is a single publicly exposed `Process` functions which receive an image and a radius as parameters and returns the blurred version of the provided image.

func Process(src image.Image, radius uint32) image.Image

Below is a very simple example of how you can use this package.

package main

import (


func main() {
	img, err := os.Open("sample.jpg")
	defer img.Close()

	src, _, err := image.Decode(img)
	if err != nil {

	res := stackblur.Process(src, uint32(5))

	output, err := os.OpenFile("output.jpg", os.O_CREATE|os.O_RDWR, 0755)
	defer output.Close()
	if err != nil {

	if err = jpeg.Encode(output, res, &jpeg.Options{Quality: 100}); err != nil {

Process takes an image as input and returns it's blurred version by applying the blur radius defined as parameter.
