ImPP (Image Post-Processor)

GreatAttractor

2,955 views

NOTE: This program has been superseded by ImPPG, which includes all the below functionality in a full-fledged GUI.


Image Post-Processor performs Lucy-Richardson deconvolution, histogram stretch, gamma correction and unsharp masking. Both a command-line tool and a graphical user interface (GUI) wrapper for processing of multiple files are available.

Building from source code (C++) requires Boost and wxWidgets (for the GUI) libraries and is possible on multiple platforms.

Files:

impp.zip: Windows command-line program, GUI and source code

impp-src.zip: source code of the command-line tool

impp-gui-src.zip: source code of the GUI

If you are not sure what you need: download the latest impp.zip, unpack it and run impp-gui.exe.

Nice one. Interesting tool. Maybe you should look at adding wider file format support. I use FreeImage (cross-platform portable), which supports a huge range of types and compression types.

Thanks for the library name, looks very interesting. I wrote my one TIFF handling code because once I got annoyed trying to understand libtiff's API.

I wrote my own code for TIFF years back as well. It does support many compression options, but I have since switched to FreeImage. It also supports floating point and double precision images. Doesn't support FITS, however.
