PICCANTE

The hottest hdr imaging library

PICCANTE is a C++11 image processing library aimed to provide structures and functionalities for enabling both High Dynamic Range (HDR) and standard imaging.

DEPENDENCIES:

Piccante uses STB image library for reading and writing PNG and JPEG files. STB can be downloaded here: https://github.com/nothings/stb

By default this library is needed to run all examples, and needs to be localed as follow:

-folder
+___"piccante"
+___"stb"

If you have STB in the system path you can disable the local path include system by adding the following define before including piccante.hpp:

#define PIC_DISABLE_STB

To disable the use of STB, you can add the following define before including piccante.hpp:

#define PIC_DISABLE_STB_LOCAL

HOW TO INSTALL:

  1. Unzip the file .zip in a FOLDER on your machine

  2. Add piccante include directory in your include path

  3. Include "piccante.hpp" in your project

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs):

Question: Can I disable OpenGL?

Answer: Yes, you can do it. You need to add this line of code before including piccante.hpp in your project:

#define PIC_DISABLE_OPENGL
#include "piccante.hpp"

Question: Can I use my version of Eigen instead of the one in the bundle?

Answer: Yes, you can do it. You just need to add this line of code before including piccante.hpp in your project:

#define PIC_EIGEN_NOT_BUNDLED
#include "piccante.hpp"

Question: Can I use OpenEXR instead of TinyEXR?

Answer: Yes, you can do it. You just need to add these two lines of code before including piccante.hpp in your project:

#define PIC_DISABLE_TINY_EXR
#define PIC_ENABLE_OPEN_EXR
#include "piccante.hpp"

SCREENSHOTS:

Piccante can be used for generating HDR images starting from a stack of classic 8-bit images.

HDR Generation

Piccante can manage different color spaces, and new ones can be added to its core with ease.

Color Spaces

Piccante provides algorithms for tone mapping HDR images in order to be visualized on traditional displays.

Tone Mapping

Piccante can filter images using a high quality selection of linear and non linear filters.

Filtering

Piccante can extract local features for different tasks such as image alignments, classification, 3D reconstruction, etc.
