Improved latency in Asia

We launched our 3rd cluster in Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬, Asia. Chart generation latency has been reduced by 3 πŸŽ‰.

πŸ’« Gif charts generation time is now 4 times faster!

We've rolled out a performance upgrade that reduced by 4 our average animated charts generation time.

Unlike Google Image Charts, Image-Charts supports animated charts and it's awesome, read more about it in our documentation.

Color fill between two lines support in a multi-line chart

Long awaited, we've added support for color fill between lines in line charts.

Without further ado let's look at an example. The line chart below has three series thus three lines and two color fills. First serie (0,1) has a blue color fill (#224499), second serie (1,2) has a red color fill (#FF0000):

chd=s:cefhjkqwrlgYcfgc,QSSVXXdkfZUMRTUQ,HJJMOOUbVPKDHKLH
chm=b,224499,0,1,0|b,FF0000,1,2,0

Read more about chm syntax.

PS: This feature was requested by two of our customer, Erisa D. from Spotify πŸ‘.

Legend now supports label orders

chdlp let you specify the chart's legend position as well as an optional label order. We now also support the later. Default label order (l) follows the order of chdl but you can overwrite it with r to display labels in the reverse order as given to chdl or specify your custom label orders with a list of zero-based label indexes 0,1,2.

chdl=a|b|c
chdlp=r|1,2,0

PS: Thanks to Hunter M. for the report πŸ‘.

Chinese πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ and Japanese πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ now supported in chart title

Hello World in Chinese:

chtt=δ½ ε₯½, δΈ–η•Œ

Hello World in Japanese:

chtt=γ“γ‚“γ«γ‘γ―δΈ–η•Œ

PS: Thanks to Christopher H. for the report πŸ‘.

Legend position: right (default) & left support

Just like Google Image Charts, we now support right (chdlp=r) and left (chdlp=l) legend position and we brung back the right position as the default one πŸ‘.

Right legend position

a

chdlp=r

Left legend position

a

chdlp=l

Bottom legend position

a

chdlp=b

Top legend position

a

chdlp=t

Line chart shape markers

Shape markers are here! Long awaited, we've released markers for line charts (chm=). Add circle, square, diamond, cross to your chart data serie points.

Read more at our shape markers documentation.

QR Codes support!

We've recently released QR Codes support. The good news is, it's fully compatible with Google Image Charts QR Code API.

https://image-charts.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=Hello&choe=UTF-8

Please note that QR Code feature is currently in beta, the API won't change however once out of beta we will add our watermark at the top right and corner to support our freemium model. But don't worry, your QR Code will still be valid πŸ‘Œ.

If you wish to be future proof right now, please take an Enterprise subscription and make signed request today so even when our QR Code feature will be out of beta you will never see/have the watermark.

Fixed line chart fill bellow 0

Line chart color filling was not going down to the chart bottom. It now does and Image-Charts now behaves just like Google Image Charts πŸ‘Œ. Thanks to @hunnafresh for the report.
