Imagewell vs Canvas

Just a simple question. What is the benefit of using an Imagewell over a Canvas to display an image? Is there a particular scenario where an Imagewell is better suited?

In Desktop Canvas backdrop and Image well do pretty much the same thing. Canvas has the advantage of being entirely transparent.

Canvas Paint will enable resize and other drawing in Paint.

In Web, Image Well is probably much faster than WebCanvas Paint, and WebCanvas simply does not have a Backdrop property.

There should be no speed difference between these two on Web. The mechanism used by the browser for retrieving the image is identical.

Indeed. Great.
