Look inside

A picture says a thousand words, but make sure they’re the right ones. Today’s cell phones come with amazing digital cameras, but without a guarantee that you’ll never take another bad picture. Learn to use image processing algorithms, geometry, point operations, and filters to transform images by adjusting brightness, contrast, color, size, and shape. You’ll also create interesting effects such as highlighting edges, embossing, and blurring.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book and video resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books and videos for 90 days.


This liveProject is for intermediate C# programmers who are familiar with Windows Forms. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • Visual Studio 2022
  • Windows operating system
  • Create a class
  • Define constructors
  • Work with arrays and lists, and iterate through them
  • Use lambda expressions, in particular statement lambdas
  • Use extension methods

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn:

  • Load an image without locking its file
  • Save images in various formats (.png, .bmp, .tif, etc.)
  • Manipulate an image’s pixels
  • Use mouse events to let the user select part of an image
  • Apply various image transformations to modify images
  • Use C# code to perform useful image enhancements such as adjusting brightness, contrast, sharpness, and more


You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
