Forget InstaGram. Make your own filters

Peeyush Aggarwal (~peeyush)




The talk would describe that how simple it could be to make small scripts that could help you edit your pictures in an Uber Cool manner.

The tools that would be used are OpenCv and Python. I would be demonstrating and explaining a few scripts which would help us getting a funky profile picture out of our own code rather than some app.

No prior knowledge in image processing would be required but photography enthusiasm would help the talk to be lively.


  1. Some knowledge about writing simple python code.
  2. Enthusiasm towards photography.

Can we have some links to your slides or a general structure, some thing that can be used to be put on the projector so audience can follow along.

Please upload the slides/structure so they can be reviewed before 12th feb.

Have you given any talks(including this one) before? Any experience of public speaking? It's not a requirement for doing the talk but would definitely help us gauge the experience level. We suggest going through the presentation least once infant of a small audience to get some experience if yo have not already.

It would be a hands on session kind of a thing. So slides would not be of much importance. Should I share code snippets for the same. (Cant use ipython notebooks as cv2 library functions are not supported).

Let me know the channel of sharing the snippets if it works.

I have been an active speaker in various domains. As far as a technical talk is concerned, I gave a 30 min talk at PyDelhi weekly Meetup on the topic "Image processing - The Open Source way". It was an exhaustive analysis of Pros and cons of MATLAB and OpenCV as a tool for image processing.

Peeyush Aggarwal (~peeyush)

Yes Peeyush, code snippets would be fine. But we also recommend having a basic outline chalked out. Please share the outline and snippets. Also we only have 20 mins for the talk. Do you think that would be sufficient for you. If this is something that can be followed along we recommend converting it to a workshop which would have more time as compared to the talk.

Just added the code snippets. Would provide the outline for the talk/worshop very soon. Kudos. :)
