Resizing Images using Azure Functions

April 05, 2019 by Anuraj

ASP.NET Core Azure Serverless

This post is about how to resize images uploaded to a blob storage using Azure functions. In my current project, system used to resize the image while uploading the image to blob storage. This approach got two major drawbacks - the process will take some time and the resize is implemented using System.Drawing - which is not recommended to use in Server side applications. By implementing a function - which triggers while someone uploads a photo to blob storage - using ImageSharp - resize the image. Since the code is very minimal I am using the Azure portal to build the Azure Function. In the portal, click New and Search for Functions, select Function App. And you need to provide a name, resource group and storage.
