Photo Effects SDK for iOS

Photo Effects SDK for iOS

A photo effects framework for iOS applications. Photo Effects SDK comes with 35+ ready to use photo effects with extensible architecture.

This Photo Effects SDK provides iOS developers a mature solution for integrating image processing effects in their applications. It is built on the Core Image framework.

With so many filters that come with the Core Image, creating your own photo effects is still a time consuming task. By using Photo Effects SDK you will get 35+ ready effects to start with. The filters and effects are cleanly separated within and it is easy to create your custom effect classes by using the filter chaining support provided.



  • 35+ ready photo effects including Aged, Halftone, Paper Toss and Lens effects.
  • Auto-Enhance
  • Saturation, Brightness and Contrast filters
  • Crop filter
  • Extensible effect architecture
  • Filter chaining support
  • Uses ARC

    First I would like to thank to you for creating a nice SDK, I have seen the examples created by your SDK, they are really awesome and found this is very good and suits our requirement. I am also okay with the pricing for the SDK, but before buying the SDK I have some question to you they might seems simple to you but these are really critical for me, Find below the questions 1. Is the SDK can be used for iPad platform 2. Is there any support or help forum for this with the example 3. Is there any trial version available for this 4. Is the SDK support both iPad and iPhone I want to buy this SDK for my company and as per the company policy the software/SDK has to be tested by our IT team in all aspects and once they approves we proceed for buying.
