Nokia Updates Imaging SDK for Windows Phones
Nokia today made the Nokia Imaging SDK 1.0 available to developers. The SDK, which was released in beta form in July, lets Windows Phone developers add a wide range of camera functions and features to their own apps. It is compatible with all Windows Phones, not just those made by Nokia. The SDK gives developers access to filters, effects, and on-screen rendering options. There are more than 50 filters included with the SDK, as well as the tools needed for developers to create their own filters. It also includes features such as arbitrary cropping regions, free rotate, and resizing images for online sharing. According to Nokia, the SDK uses the Random Access JPEG (RAJPEG) format, which helps it manipulate large files without requiring too much drain on the CPU or battery. The Nokia Imaging SDK 1.0 can be downloaded from Nokia's developer portal.
