The Image Effects module provides a suite of additional image effects that can be added to image styles and UI components that can be used in the image effects configuration forms.

Effects provided / supported by image toolkit:

Image Effects tries to support both the GD toolkit from Drupal core and the ImageMagick toolkit. However, please note that there may be effects that are not supported by all toolkits, or that provide different results with different toolkits.
