Edit Image#

Use the Edit Image node to manipulate and edit images.


  1. If you aren't running n8n on Docker, you need to install GraphicsMagick.
  2. You need to use a node such as the Read/Write Files from Disk node or the HTTP Request node to pass the image file as a data property to the Edit Image node.
