Nokia Imaging SDK 1.0: Power tools for Windows Phone developers

Today at Slush 2013, one of the top start-up conferences in the world, Nokia announced the latest version of its Imaging SDK (v1.0) to give Windows Phone developers the tools they need to create sophisticated new imaging apps for Nokia Lumia smartphones.

“Based on the core technology that we have in our own imaging apps, such as Nokia Camera and Creative Studio, the Nokia Imaging SDK gives developers access to filters, effects and on-screen rendering options that are unlike any other library on Windows Phone,” says Samuli Hänninen, vice president of software program management for Nokia’s Smart Devices business.

...

A boatload of new features and functionality

The Imaging SDK is available exclusively for Windows Phone developers. It includes more than 50 built-in filters such as Sepia, Black & White, Mirror, Tones, and Chromakey, which enables “green screen” magic to come to life so a developer can provide a background to render objects in.

Need more filters? With the new SDK release, developers can now create their own custom filters and add previously unseen effects to their apps.

...

Initially launched as a beta this past summer, hundreds of beta participants have already published their apps and provided feedback about the Imaging SDK. Some of the many apps created using this SDK include Smart ResizeSocial SceneTapShootPanna Paint, OneShot, as well as Pikura, which was the winning app in the Nokia Create Mini Mission 1 that called for updates to apps using the SDK.

“After a successful beta, we’re confident that this release will be well received. We’ve taken into account a lot of the feedback and have made the SDK even better for developers,” says Sami.

The Nokia Imaging SDK is free to download and available now from Nokia Developer and viaNuGet.

Well if it's got a "boatload of new features..." then is HAS to be good, right? Something fun to play with this weekend or this coming holiday season...
