Simple Image Resizing Library

My goals for this library were to make it easy to use, and flexible enough to be used no matter how you store your images (FileSystem, Database, Amazon Web Services, etc). As for the discussion on which way is the "best" way to store images - I'll leave that to someone else. However, anyway you go, there's still some common things you have to think about: resizing images and maintaining aspect ratio, uniqueness of file names, etc.

ImageViewer UserControl

The ImageViewer UserControl is something I created to fill in a gap I experienced in displaying images on my forms. I wanted to be able to zoom in, zoom out, rotate my images and best of all, not having to scale my images down to make it fit inside my forms.

I have looked around and found solutions such as dragging PictureBoxes inside of a panel, potentially good but it had it's issues. With this article I want to share my work to those who might be having this very same issue.

Optimize Images Using the ASP.NET Sprite and Image Optimization Framework

The HTML markup of a web page includes the page's textual content, semantic and styling information, and, typically, several references to external resources. External resources are content that is part of web page, but are separate from the web page's markup - things like images, style sheets, script files, Flash videos, and so on. When a browser requests a web page it starts by downloading its HTML. Next, it scans the downloaded HTML for external resources and starts downloading those.

A page with many external resources usually takes longer to completely load than a page with fewer external resources because there is an overhead associated with downloading each external resource. For starters, each external resource requires the browser to make an HTTP request to retrieve the resource. What's more, browsers have a limit as to how many HTTP requests they will make in parallel. For these reasons, a common technique for improving a page's load time is to consolidate external resources in a way to reduce the number of HTTP requests that must be made by the browser to load the page in its entirety.

This article examines the free and open-source ASP.NET Sprite and Image Optimization Framework, which is a project developed by Microsoft for improving a web page's load time by consolidating images into a sprite or by using inline, base-64 encoded images. In a nutshell, this framework makes it easy to implement practices that will improve the load time for a web page that displays several images.
