Core Image Reference Collection

Core Image is an image processing and analysis technology designed to provide near real-time processing for still and video images. In iOS and OS X you can use Core Image classes to:

  • Process images using the many built-in 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

  • Create custom filters for use in your app

On OS X you can also package custom filters as Image Units that you can publish for use by others. For details, see Image Unit Tutorial.
