WhitespaceTrimmer plugin

Trims whitespace (even smooth gradients) from around images automatically using edge detection filters. Requires Full Trust, uses unmanaged code.

OriginalWhitespaceTrimmer

      

Settings: &trim.threshold = 80 , &trim.percentpadding = 0.5

Usage

Add&trim.threshold=80to an image URL. You'll probably also want to restore a bit of padding with&trim.percentpadding=0.5since it's ugly to trim completely to the edge of the object.

The threshold value can usually go all the way up to 255 without cutting off any part of the image. The percentpadding value can be anywhere between 0 and 50, but 0.5-2 is usually the best.
