Call For Developers To Create New Imaging App with Nokia Imaging SDK

Share

With the Nokia Imaging SDK 1.1, you have access to a powerful library of exciting image manipulation tools, which makes creating the next generation of imaging apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.1 devices quicker and easier. Designed from the ground up with performance and a low memory footprint in mind, the library’s functions don’t put a strain on the user’s device, which makes editing high resolution images swift and engaging. In fact, the technology behind the Nokia Imaging SDK is well proven, as Nokia uses it to create its own imaging applications, such as Creative Studio.

Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.
