I’ve mentioned some excellent open source libraries for photo filters and scaling and cropping images, and adding shadow and stacking effects.

Today I came across another library, FXImageView, allows you to easily add shadow and reflection effects, but what makes it different is that FXImageView uses queuing and caching to produce these affects at high-speed.

This makes it great for situations where you’ll be applying to the effects to many different images such as when the user is scrolling through a carousel of images.

Here’s a screenshot of FXImageView applied to a carousel of images in one of the include examples:

You can find FXImageView by Nick Lockwood on Github here.

There’s also a UIImageView category for UIImageView scaling, cropping, and effects making this an excellent library any time you want to add basic effects to an Image.
