Image Processing With C++

I'm a webworks developer with little experience in native. 


I'm working on an app that needs some image processing. My original plan was to have the image uploaded to my server and edit it with ImageMagick. 


I'm wondering if I could instead use the C++ version of Image Magick and do the processing directly on the device. Anyone know of a reason why this wouldn't work?

Technically this should work. But most likely you'll have to tweak build scripts or source code which can be a complex task.

It would also depend on how complicated your image processing is.

Once I tried to run on a playbook an algorithm of finding the best solution for 15-puzzle game. It does work but it takes approximately 4 minutes (if I don't run anything else in parallel) for PlayBook to find this solution -)))
