Scan Tailor - Post-processing tool for Scanned Pages

Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing tool for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others. You give it raw scans, and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or DJVU file.

Scrimage - Scala image processing library

Scrimage is a consistent, idiomatic, and immutable scala library for manipulating and processing of images. The aim of the this library is to provide a quick and easy way to do the kinds of image operations that are most common, such as scaling, rotating, converting between formats and applying filters. It is not intended to provide functionality that might be required by a more "serious" image processing application - such as face recognition or movement tracking.

Thumbnailator - A thumbnail generation library for Java

Thumbnailator is a thumbnail generation library for Java. Learning how to use the Image I/O API, Java 2D API, image processing, image scaling techniques etc is fairly difficult task. Thumbnailator will take care of all those things for you. Thumbnailator is a single JAR file with no dependencies to external libraries, making development and deployment simple and easy. It also provides support to watermark, rotate, fluent API.

CoreAR - AR(Augmented reality) framework for iOS, based on a visual code like ARToolKit

CoreAR.framework is open source AR framework. You can make an AR application using visual code like ARToolKit using this framework. CoreAR.framework does not depend on the other computer vision library like OpenCV. Considered portability, this framework is written only C or C++. The pixel array of an image is passed to CoreAR.framework and then visual code's identification number, rotation and translation matrix are obtained from the image including a visual code. Image processing speed of this framework is about 15 fps on iPhone4. Take notice that CoreAR.framework depends on Quartz Help Library and Real time image processing framework for iOS. You have to download these libraries and put on them at the path where CoreAR.framework has been installed.
