Adding fancy overlay effects to images (iOS)

Recently we saw a great initiative taken by Facebook to support LGBT community. As a part of that initiative they provided a way on Facebook to add pride parade color effect to users' profile photos.
It was quite fascinating to see. I wondered about it for few days if what if we can do on an iOS.

For some time I felt it might be difficult, but was not so much. I successfully created a library using Objective-C. It was quite cool to see myself recreating that lot of people used earlier.

Of course, I know I was not creative in that sense. But it felt really good to replicate that fascinating effect as a part of initiative taken to support LGBT community

Just so it would be useful for someone to create this effect on their Macs. You can find a library implementation Here on Github.

Feel free to play with it and send a pull request if you could find a bug/way to enhance it to the next level.

In the meantime, I have also updated this library to support additional effects such as ones as follows.

Here are some of the cool demo effects I gathered over days of working and improving upon this library. Hope you'll like them!
