Nokia Imaging SDK

Earlier today at the Slush 2013, one of the top start-up conferences in the world, Nokia announced the latest version of its Imaging SDK (v1.0) to give Windows Phone developers the tools they need to create sophisticated new imaging apps for Nokia Lumia Windows Phones.

The Nokia Imaging SDK is based on the core technology that the company uses in its signature imaging apps like Nokia Camera and Creative Studio. It gives developers access to filters, effects, and on-screen rendering options that are unlike any other library on Windows Phone. The SDK includes more than 50 built-in filters and also allows developers to create their own custom filters and add previously unseen effects to their apps.  Sam Niemi, Nokia's director of Capture and Relive software products commented, 

"The Nokia Lumia 1020’s ability to effortlessly re-frame and freely rotate pictures taken with the 41MP camera is magical. Now developers can build similar ‘Wow’ experiences in their apps with a single API call."

The SDK was launched as a beta a while back, and several beta participants have already published their apps created using this SDK. Some of these apps are Smart Resize, Social Scene, TapShoot, Panna Paint, OneShot, and Pikura.

Available exclusively for Windows Phone developers, the Nokia Imaging SDK is free to download from Nokia Developer or via NuGet.
