very simple image editing API

Recommended Posts

Hey, I am familiar with lots of ways to implement the loading and rendering of images, but I have a new problem and am not sure where to find a good API. What I need to be able to do is load many jpegs, and 'copy and paste' them into a much larger picture forming a collage. I already have an algorithm witch can determine which picture in a list of many is the best fit for any one color. The goal is to be able to generate those collages made up of many many smaller pictures similar to this: I relaize they also edited their pictures, but hopefully you get the idea. Thanks.

Just copy/pasting is very simple -- memcpy() of the appropriate scanlines will do it for you.

A library that wraps it up a little bit is GD -- it's used by a lot of web servers to generate images, charts, etc.

A library that can load tons of different bitmap formats is DevIL.
