Creating Images

To create images using the Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications standalone version, do the following:

  • Select Analyze > Variable management. Or click cells in the Assigned Variable column of the Analyze Board.
  • In the Variable Management dialog click Add.
  • In the Select Variable Type dialog choose Image from the Type combo box.

Use input bitmap files and the parameters to create images. Create output images with the correct size, type, channel order, and so on.

The Get output image data checkbox disables reading back the output buffer or image. It means that you can try more than one combination of global or local work sizes, where there is no need to read the same output for all the combinations.
