Cover Creator 2012
In 2012 I created a web service for car manufacturer Smart which creates a mosaic image from the images stored in a user's Facebook photo feed. The service makes use of several methods to increase performance, such as threading and manipulating bitmap data using unmanaged code. The result is that generating an image from hundreds of input images which are resized, tiled and color-manipulated according to a source image, takes only a few seconds.
