TextThe ProblemDevelopers are wasting time recreating Instagram.Everyone wants ﬁlters. But if you want to add ﬁlters to your app today, you have to research image processing libraries,design ﬁlters in Photoshop, attempt to translate them into code and build a ﬁlter picker and other controls from scratch.
The SolutionMeet FilterKit: Drop in our library...FilterKit makes adding photo ﬁlters to your app as easy as dropping in our library and calling our ﬁlter picker.Unlike existing Open Source libraries, it offers developers a complete toolkit.

The FilterKit Picker• Here’s how it works: • Add the FilterKit library to your app. • Pass an image from the iOS camera or photo library to the Filter Picker View Controller, where users can browse and apply ﬁlters. • Get back the processed image.• You can customize FilterKit by: • Choosing from a thumbnail-style or our original carousel-style ﬁlter picker (shown here). • Choosing which ﬁlters to offer from our collection of presets, or ﬁnd and share more ﬁlters online.
The FilterKit Builder• Designing multi-step ﬁlters can be tedious. Image processing frameworks like GPUImage let you adjust parameters one step at a time, but the best ﬁlters involve multiple steps.• The FilterKit Builder offers a visual interface for creating multi-step ﬁlter “recipes.”• You can visually adjust each parameter to your liking, then export your ﬁlter recipe as a new class that can be added to your app.
The FilterKit Gallery• You can also share your ﬁlter recipes with others by uploading them to the FilterKit GitHub repository and adding a link and thumbnail to the FilterKit Gallery.• The FilterKit Gallery makes it easy to ﬁnd and share great ﬁlters, so no developer has to create “that toy camera effect” again from scratch ever again.
