I parallelized some of the python code.
I also rewrote the color processing code into C++. The C++ code for individually changing each pixel is 600 times faster.
I read up on how to make images of food look better and added more algorithms. I want to improve the algorithms/add more algorithms. They are currently not hooped up to the rest of the code.
Next I need to link the C++ code to my Python code, and find a way to to generate meaning full varaibles to pass the processing algorithms. I might rewrite and benchmark the cropping-and-retargeting code in c++ as well.
