View Full Version : image processing with qtopengl

10th June 2010, 22:37
hi, I'm writing an application which have one photo overlaying another photo. I want to have some alpha blending effect. should i use the alpha blending feature provided by opengl? If i just use the alpha blending feature, is it worth to build with qtopengl? what's the cost in terms of binary size and performance? thx

Qt seems to support photo manipulation and blending quite nicely. Combined with the ability to do threaded work, I don't think that you will need any OpenGL. For image manipulation, see their example http://doc.trolltech.com/4.5/painting-imagecomposition.html.

Happy image processing!
