Overview

Our SDK provides all the tools necessary for adding photo editing capabilities to your iOS application with a large variety of filters that can be previewed in real-time. Unlike other apps that allow a live preview of filters, the PhotoEditor SDK provides a live preview even when using high-resolution images. The framework is written in Swift and allows for easy customization. Additionally, we support adding stickers and text in a non-destructive manner, which means that you can change the position, size, scale and order at any given time, even after applying other effects or cropping the photo.

License Terms

Make sure you have a commercial license before releasing your app. A commercial license is required for any app or service that has any form of monetization: This includes free apps with in-app purchases or ad supported applications. Please get in touch if you want to purchase the commercial license.

Features

  • 62 stunningly beautiful built-in filters to choose from.
  • Native code: Our rendering engine is based on Apple’s Core Image, therefore we dodge all the nasty OpenGL problems other frameworks are facing.
  • iPad support: The PhotoEditor SDK uses auto layout for its views and adapts to each screen size - iPhone or iPad.
  • Design filters in Photoshop: With most photo editing frameworks you have to tweak values in code or copy & paste them from Photoshop or your favorite image editor. With our response technology this becomes a thing of the past. Design your filter in Photoshop and apply it to the provided identity image afterward. Said image will ‘record’ the filter response - save it and add it as a new filter, done!
  • Swift: To keep up with the time, we chose Swift as the main development language for the PhotoEditor SDK, resulting in lean and straightforward code.
  • Live preview: Filters can be previewed directly in the camera preview.
  • Low memory footprint: We were able to reduce our memory footprint significantly.
  • Non-destructive: Don’t like your changes to the picture? No problem, just undo or even discard them. Of course you can redo them afterward as well!
  • Highly customizable: Style the UI as you wish to meet your requirements.
  • Objective-C support: All of our public API is Objective-C compatible.
  • Fast: Our renderer uses hardware acceleration and the GPU, which makes it lightning fast.
