STB_Image or FreeImage ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had problems with STB_Image in the past but using the latest version from GitHub problem are removed.

When I had theses problem I switched to FreeImage who is a stable image lib.

The good thing of STB_Image is the license and it's just one header file.

Is it good to use STB_Image or it's better to stay with FreeImage ?

If you need wide image format support, use FreeImage.

Otherwise, you can use stb_image if you control all images that you use and don't mind the lack of support for file formats like progressive JPEGs and some rare kinds of PNGs and DDS files.
