Twibright Registrator removes noise and can quadruple the resolution of a camera in software by matching several pictures together. It can be applied to remove noise, JPEG artifacts, rain, CRT stripes, and passersby. It can enhance night photos and provide the effect of long exposure in daylight. Pictures are matched by removing shift, rotation, zoom, and brightness changes. It features high performance bilinear interpolation, automatic adaptive corrective deconvolution, 32-bit float depth, photometrically linear space, and 16-bit depth PNG output.
AKVIS HDRFactory creates HDR images from a series of photographs taken at different exposures or from a single photograph. This technique generates stylized images with fabulous colors and unique effects. The software also includes an efficient deghosting tool for removing artifacts that sometimes appear when combining photos with moving objects. It can also be used for photo correction.
Marvin is an extensible image processing framework for Java. It provides features to manipulate images, to manipulate captured video frames, and to process images with multi-threading. Its features can be extended via plug-ins. Plug-ins can be integrated with the graphical user interface, and their plug-in performance can be analyzed. Every image processing algorithm is developed as a plug-in that can be plugged into the MarvinEditor, an image manipulation program that uses plug-ins developed using Marvin, or into third-party applications. Currently there are 55 plug-ins available.
Thumbnailator is a thumbnail generation library with a fluent interface for Java. It simplifies the process of producing thumbnails from existing image files and image objects by providing an API which allows for fine tuning of thumbnail generation, while keeping the amount of code that needs to be written to a minimum.
AstroStack is an easy-to-use astronomical imaging and processing tool geared towards the use of inexpensive webcam CCDs. It provides a very tunable environment to produce the best quality images. It supports the following features: tunable webcam sampling; image stacking (averaging, additive etc.); pre and post-capture gamma (brightness) and contrast correction; dark-shot CCD calibration (subtractive); and an internal 16-bit grey-scale format for optimal resolution.
Bad Peggy searches for damaged JPEG files and validates and verifies pictures for truncation and other blemishes, which sometimes occur when such files are downloaded or restored from bad backups. It's fast, easy to use, and reliable in the analysis it does. It uses all available CPU cores too.
The Common Pipeline Library provides a highly robust set of functions for manipulating signals and images. It is primarily intended for the building of VLT instrument pipelines, but is also useful for generic data handling. It includes a number of useful low-level data types, medium-level data access methods, standard implementations of commonly-used signal processing and data reduction tasks, and dynamic loading of "recipes" for data processing.
