Graphics on iOS and OS X isn't just about stroking shapes and paths in Core Graphics and trying to figure out OpenGL. The Core Image framework gives you access to about 100 built-in filters, providing everything from photographic effects and color manipulation to face-finding and QR Code generation. It can leverage the power of the GPU to provide performance fast enough to perform complex effects work on real-time video capture. But even if you're not writing the next Final Cut Pro or Photoshop, it's easy to call in Core Image for simple tasks, like putting a blur in part of your UI for transitions or privacy reasons. In this session, we'll explore the many ways Core Image can make your app sizzle.
