Image processing with PostgreSQL

PostPic is an extension for the open source dbms PostgreSQL that enables image processing inside the database, like PostGIS does for spatial data. It adds the new ‘image’ type to the SQL, and several functions to process images and to extract their attributes.



The project Wiki has a Quickstart guide and other documentation.
