Project Summary

The VIPS library/image processing system is well suited for larger than RAM true and false-colour images. VIPS can be used for image format conversion, colour calibration, image filtering, transformation and analysis, thumbnail generation, small object recognition and many other image processing tasks. VIPS is well suited for medical and scientific research & development and batch image processing. It is not so good for retouching photographs. The system has two main parts: libvips is the library, and nip2 is the GUI. Both execute common image processing tasks faster than other image processing systems because of sophisticated memory/task management and multicore compatibility.
VIPS runs in batch (command line) mode on *nix, Windows, Mac and other OSes.
