Front interface for Image Enhancer 1.0.0 Release Candidate
Image Enhancer is a desktop application based on Image Processing concepts. A set of total 64 basic and complex Image Processing filters are implemented here. Moreover snapshots can be captured using
video surveillance camera/webcam attached with the computer.
It enables the end users to modify their pictures in several ways by offering numerous filters and effects through a rich GUI which can be utilized in multiple ways, as per the requirements of the end
users. This software was developed using Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 and Visual C#. Currently running version is 1.0. This project uses AForge.NET Framework (http://www.aforgenet.com/)
for computer vision and image processing.
- A sum total of 64 simple and complex image processing filters are incorporated with full parameter customization. More stunning filters to be added soon.
- Supports JPG
, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, TIF, EMF, EXIF, GIF, WMF and DCM formats in Release Candidate version. More imaging formats to be included in the upcoming versions.
- Video Buffering is possible with the use of any USB or Surveillance Camera.
- Snapshots of the video can be taken from Video Buffering.

At the present moment I am trying to enhance this software to include some more filters along with added functionality which are not present in AForge.NET framework. Apart from that, giving support to
more imaging formats is another burning issue which needs to taken care of. For this reason this project may change rapidly. Almost all the parameters of the image processing filters are customized in RC version at present. Please keep visit the
Image Enhancer Page for continuous updates.
