luminance

Converts an RGB image into a grayscale luminance image. This is built on the ndarray library.

Example

//Load up a test image
var lena = require("lena")

//Convert to grayscale
var grayscale_lena = require("luminance")(lena)

//Write the resulting png to stdout
require("save-pixels")(grayscale_lena, "png").pipe(process.stdout)

Which creates the following image:

Install

npm install luminance

API
