AppKit-scaling Image Unit

A Core-Image-less Image Unit by Peter Hosey


Have you ever wondered whether it was possible to make an Image Unit that didn't actually use a CIKernel?

It is. This Image Unit is an example of that.

If you wish to try out the Image Unit, install it to Library/Graphics/Image\ Units (creating folders as necessary). Then launch Core Image Fun House, which is in /Developer/Applications/Graphics\ Tools. Open an image, click the + button, and add the “AppKit scale” image unit from the Geometry Adjustment category.
