libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg for x86 and x86-64 processors. It uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE, SSE2) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4 times as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg. It also includes a wrapper library for the TurboJPEG API used by VirtualGL and TurboVNC. It was originally based on libjpeg/SIMD but has improved support for Mac OS X, 64-bit platforms, 32-bit and big endian pixel formats (RGBA/BGRA/ABGR/ARGB), accelerated Huffman encoding/decoding, and various other fixes.
Screwdriver++ is a package with various tools for the C++ programmer in Unix environments. It contains classes for time measurement, image and file manipulation, and arbitrary precision arithmetics. Timer is a class for measuring time intervals with millisecond accuracy. Image is a class that uses OpenCv to manipulate images. File is a class to manipilate file input and output in various formats. Number is a class to manipulate arbitrary precision arithmetics.
geh is a simple command line image viewer with various nice features. It currently supports a slide-show mode displaying multiple images in a row either controlled by a time interval and/or mouse button clicks, and a thumbnail mode creating small thumbnail images and caching them in ~/.thumbnails according to freedesktop.org's thumbnail specification.
