Microsoft Cognitive Services offers us computer vision services to describe images and to detect printed or handwritten text. Text recognition provides interesting scenarios like cloud based OCR or providing automated translations for texts on images. This blog post focuses on recognizing printed text using Azure Computer Vision API.

ASP.NET Core introduces Node services that allow applications to run Node scripts on server. We can send data from controller action to Node script and get back some output we can use in view. This blog post shows how to use Node services to render d3.js charts on server-side to PNG files.

In one of my projects I needed to draw radial indicators for processes measured in percent. Simple images like the one shown on right. I solved the problem by creating images in C# and saving them on server hard disc so if image is once generated then it is returned from disc next time. I am not master of graphics or geometrics but here is the code I wrote.

ASP.NET provides us with System.Drawing namespace where we can find classes we can use to manipulate with images. There are many people out there who mistakenly think thatImage.GetThumbnailImage is best choice for image resizing. You can easily create crappy images if you follow the code examples in previously pointed article. In this post I will show you how to resize images without negative side effects.

In this example we will use simple color recalculation method to grayscale images. For each pixel on image we will calculate “average color” that we write back on image. Average color is sum of current color’s red, green and blue channels integer value divided by three. This value is assigned to all three channels for current pixel.
