Hello, I'm requiring a coder with experience in graphic algorithms and image processing. I have a huge batch (and continuously growing) of source images where I need to programmatically apply noise reduction. This reduction does not need to be exact though. There are many hints you can use to ease the processing. E.g., the images are small, they don't contain photographic content (just letters and line art) and very few colors are used. What I need is a dynamic link library in plain Win32, with the fewest possible dependencies and resources usage (so no .NET or ActiveX allowed), able to take the full path of a given source image and do the respective processing. The code must be thread-safe and it's intended to be included in a larger project. Any development environment can be used as long as the previous requirements are met. Complete details, samples, etc., will be given to those interested. This is a complex job and because of that, I'm looking for experienced people. Finally, be aware that I will need to check a demo before awarding the project. I've lost enough time and money before with apparently skilled developers. So, take that into account. Thank you.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).

To everyone who plans to send (or has already sent) a demo:
-Sometimes it's a good idea to show some of your previous cool work, but not in this one. We are being specific. We need a demo for our special case.
-Making our lives easier also increases your chances of winning the job. I.e., we need to check the demo against a rather big set of sample images. If your demo makes complex the process of showing the resulting images, or even does not save them to disk, we will have to invest a lot of time evaluating it.
-Though it's not a must, if you can add the option to select many images and process them sequentially, that would be great.
-A demo that generates partial results is not worth it. It can show your skills but makes impossible to get a numeric estimation of your success. The demo IS NOT the final job in any way. It's expected you improve your code for bette r performance. So we won't steal your work. There is a risk investing some time, but take present we have wasted a lot of time and money before, with coders that said "I can do it".
