Book recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I do not have much understanding of how image editors are programmed , Please recommend some (preferably C++) books/articles/libraries that will help me to understand the source code of paint.net tools like Magic Wand,Clone Stamp etc ...

Thanks in advance

If you want to learn how to write plugins, read this post: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1096

It includes links to 3 tutorials that should really help you.

I thought you wrote CodeLab.

Tom Jackson wrote CodeLab. I simply added a bunch of features to it (like UI creation, Icons, submenus, bug fixes, etc.)

Well i'm reading a book which is generally about all the programming languages. It's the beginning programming for dummies. A very helpful book indeed.

see http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesTitle/Beginning-Programming-For-Dummies-4th-Edition.productCd-0470088702,subcat-PROGRAMMING.html

By the way, that book won't teach you how to write plugins - as it uses Liberty BASIC. It is a great language for beginners - but even writing a simple paint program in it can be a nightmare.

Actually it teaches you all the basics for c++ liberty basic and revolution. If you want to specialise even further in c++ try a different book but hey in the codelab tutorials you only need the basics

Does it teach you that? Anyway, CodeLab is C# - not C++.
