ngx-picture

An Angular library to help properly size, lazy load images, and use next generation formats.

Help improve app performance and fix common Lighthouse opportunities:

  • Serve images in next-gen formats
  • Properly size images
  • Defer offscreen images

Ready made configurations available for:

For live demos:

Install

Angular 9+

npm i --save ngx-picture@latest

Angular < 9

npm i --save ngx-picture@2.0.4

Configure

Import NgxPictureModule into app.module.ts and call forRoot suppyling the config.

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import {
  DEFAULT_BREAKPOINTS,
  ImageFormat,
  NgxPictureModule
} from 'ngx-picture';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
 
// 1: supply a function to create the srcset urls for each breakpoint
export function srcInterpolator(
  url: string,
  imageFormat: ImageFormat,
  breakpoint: string,
  breakpointValue: number
) {
  return `${url.split('.')[0]}-${breakpointValue}.${
    imageFormat === 'jpeg' ? 'jpg' : 'webp'
  }`;
}
 
@NgModule({
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    ,
    NgxPictureModule.forRoot({
      breakpoints: DEFAULT_BREAKPOINTS, //2. the break points to create sources for
      imageFormats: ['webp', 'jpeg'], //3. the image formats to create sources for. *
      srcInterpolator 
    })
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

* Image formats must be in order of precedence. In this example if webp s supported it will be used.

Using the bundled configurations (Cloudinary, ImageKit and GraphCMS)

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgxPictureModule, CLOUDINARY_CONFIG } from 'ngx-picture';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
 
@NgModule({
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [BrowserModule, NgxPictureModule.forRoot(CLOUDINARY_CONFIG)],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

Using the ngx-picture component

<ngx-picture
  src="assets/images/banner.jpg"
  alt="test"
  [lazyLoad]="true"
></ngx-picture>

If lazyLoad is true the component will use an IntersectionObserver (if it is supported by the browser) to only render the picture element if the component is in view.

*Remember to import the NgxPictureModule into the relevant module.

Advanced configuration

Changing the breakpoint value type and srcInterpolator

NgxPictureConfig is generic so you can change the brreakpoint values to anything required in the srcInterPolator function. This example is using the Angular CDK breakpoints for the breakpoint keys.

import { Breakpoints } from '@angular/cdk/layout';
 
export interface Dimensions {
  h: number;
  w: number;
}
 
const ngxPictureConfig: NgxPictureConfig<Dimensions> = {
  breakpoints: {
    [Breakpoints.XSmall]: { h: 10, w: 10 },
    [Breakpoints.Medium]: { h: 100, w: 100 },
    [Breakpoints.Large]: { h: 200, w: 200 }
  },
  imageFormats: ['webp', 'jpg'],
  srcInterpolator: (
    urlstring,
    imageFormatImageFormat,
    breakpointstring,
    breakpointValueDimensions
  ) => `${url}/w:${breakpointValue.w}/h:${breakpointValue.h}`
};
 
export function srcInterpolator(
  url: string,
  imageFormat: ImageFormat,
  breakpoint: string,
  breakpointValue: number
) {
  return `${url.split('.')[0]}-${breakpointValue}.${
    imageFormat === 'jpeg' ? 'jpg' : 'webp'
  }`;
}
 
@NgModule({
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule.withServerTransition({ appId: 'serverApp' }),
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    MatButtonModule,
    MatCardModule,
    MatListModule,
    NgxPictureModule.forRoot(ngxPictureConfig)
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

Changing the image template

To use a custom img element provide an ngTemplate called #imgTemplate.

<ngx-picture
  src="assets/images/banner.jpg"
  alt="test"
  [lazyLoad]="true"
  #picture
>
  <ng-template #imgTemplate let-imageData>
    <img class="custom-template" [src]="imageData.src" [alt]="imageData.alt" />
  </ng-template>
</ngx-picture>

The data context for the template is:

{
  srcstring,
  altstring
}

Example of rendered element

<picture class="ngx-picture__picture">
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-300.webp"
    media="(max-width: 599.99px)"
    type="image/webp"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-600.webp"
    media="(min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959.99px)"
    type="image/webp"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-960.webp"
    media="(min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1279.99px)"
    type="image/webp"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-1280.webp"
    media="(min-width: 1280px) and (max-width: 1919.99px)"
    type="image/webp"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-1920.webp"
    media="(min-width: 1920px)"
    type="image/webp"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-300.jpg"
    media="(max-width: 599.99px)"
    type="image/jpeg"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-600.jpg"
    media="(min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959.99px)"
    type="image/jpeg"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-960.jpg"
    media="(min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1279.99px)"
    type="image/jpeg"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-1280.jpg"
    media="(min-width: 1280px) and (max-width: 1919.99px)"
    type="image/jpeg"
  />
  <source
    srcset="assets/images/banner-1920.jpg"
    media="(min-width: 1920px)"
    type="image/jpeg"
  />
  <img
    class="ngx-picture__picture__img"
    src="assets/images/banner.jpg"
    alt="test"
    loading="lazy"
  />
</picture>

Styling

The picture element in the component has the class ngx-picture__picture and the img element has the class ngx-picturepictureimg.

.your-picture-class {
  .ngx-picture__picture {
    width: 100%;
    .ngx-picture__picture__img {
      width: 100%;
    }
  }
}
