    A Javascript Image filter library for the HTML5 Canvas tag.


    include the library into your html.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="imagefilters.js"></script>

    Each filter will take an ImageData as the first parameter and always return a modified copy. Below is a basic example.

    <script type="text/javascript">
      var canvas = document.getElementById('canvas_id');
      var ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');
      // do some drawing to your context...
      // create an ImageData for the area you want to apply the filter.
      var imageData = ctx.getImageData(0, 0, 300, 200);
      // pass it to a filter and get the modified copy
      var filtered = ImageFilters.GrayScale(imageData);
      // put it back into a context to view the results
      ctx.putImageData(filterd, 0, 0);

    check out the Examples section for more details.
