How simple can you get?

So let's apply a simple sharpen effect. To start with we need an ImageGlue Canvas. We'll create one and draw a picture of a boat onto it.

thePath = Server.MapPath("images/boat.jpg")
Set theCanv = Server.CreateObject("ImageGlue.Canvas")
theCanv.DrawFile thePath, ""

Original image of boat.

Next we apply a sharpen effect to the image.

Set theFX = Server.CreateObject("ImageEffects.FX")
theFX("Sharpen").Image = theCanv.Image
theFX("Sharpen").Apply

Finally we save the sharpened image.

thePath = Server.MapPath("images/sharpboat.jpg")
theCanv.SaveAs thePath, ""

Image of boat sharpened.

That's it! Couldn't be any simpler could it? There's lots more examples in the documentation so why not download now...
