Core Image Reference Collection

The Core Image class hierarchy is rooted in the Foundation framework class NSObject. On iOS and OS X you can use Core Image classes to:

  • Process images using existing image filters

  • Chain together filters and then archive them for later use

  • Detect features (such as, faces and eyes) in still and video images, and track faces in video images

  • Analyze images to get a set of auto adjustment filters.

On OS X you can also use Core image to Create custom filters either for your own use or to package as image units that you can publish for use by others.
