nip2 - a user interface for the VIPS image processing library
nip2 is a GUI for the VIPS image processing library. It's a little like a spreadsheet: you create a set of formula connecting your objects together, and on a change nip2 recalculates.
You can probably install nip2 via your package manager. For Windows and OS X, you can download a binary from the nip2 releases area. Only read on if you want to compile yourself from source.
