As a part of my student project for "Optimizing Open-Source Applications" at
Warsaw University I have speed up despeckle plug-in for gimp.
Original version of the plugin run 56seconds for 1024x768 image with
despeckle radius 30 and adaptive flag turned off (on my Intel Macbook
2.1GHz). My optimized version with the same settings completes the task in
3.5 seconds with the same image quality :-)
Sources for this optimized plug-in can be downloaded from here:
What should I do to get this to the gimp repository?
Should I change the copyright header?
