iTunes 11-style color matching code
Objective-C
Latest commit 578bb0d Mar 22, 2016 @willco007 willco007 Improved background color fetching / misc
1) Added class method init: +colorArtWithImage:scaledSize:
2) If you pass in NSZeroSize for scaledSize it will use the images size
3) will create a NSBitmapImageRep if needed/fixed bitmap color space
4) Will skip transparent colors; will continue to look for a background color until it finds one that is greater than 50% opaque
5) Log misses only in debug
6) Removed broken outlet nib reference

So, what's the story?

This project is based on a Panic blog post. The post shows an example of how to duplicate iTunes 11's cover art color matching algorithm. Aaron Brethorst / http://www.cocoacontrols.com - modularized the code and made it a bit more reusable, and...here we are!
