Hi, regarding your question on IRC: set_crop is probably not a good idea because it will set the transformation in the database. Rather get the photo, use pb = photo.get_pixbuf_with_options(Scaling.for_original()) with all transformations (scaling, rotation etc.) applied. You can then use

I have made the first level changes to migrate from process execution for every detect faces call, to one time execution of facedetect process and then communicate over DBus.https://gitlab.gnome.org/nma83/shotwell/commit/4c84248b80ebf3a1f1eb05aa60625d9d8c5d0134 The DBus interface XML is

Hi Jens, I understand the need for keeping OpenCV code in a separate process. Even so, I think we should consider starting this process as a 'daemon' when starting shotwell (controlled by an option) and communicate with it over RPC from the shotwell process instead of executing it for every

Hi Ricardo, There are problems with the OpenCV VAPI that I discovered while trying to integrate OpenCV directly.OpenCV is not C compatible anymore in the recent 3.x versions (https://github.com/opencv/opencv/issues/10963). So I had to create another VAPI bridge that took in plain C structures

Hello. In https://valadoc.org/opencv/index.htm there is a vapi to link direct from vala to opencv without c/c++ in the middle. Some considerations: First, it use OpenCV 2 which cannot detect automatically the presence of a graphic card capable to use OpenCL. Second, in the last stable Debian the
