Generic Image Library
Generic Image Library (GIL) is an open source C++ image-processing library that I wrote together with Lubomir Bourdev at Adobe Systems Incorporated. GIL abstracts image presentations from image-processing algorithms. It is designed such that its performance is on par with hand-written code for particular image formats. GIL is part of Boost. GIL is freely available in a stand-alone version at http://opensource.adobe.com/gil or with Boost at http://www.boost.org.
My GIL tutorial slides for the Open Source Vision Software, Introduction and Training tutorial at CVPR 2010 are available here.
