1. A method for allowing variably controlled alteration of image processing of digital image data in a digital image capture device, the method comprising:

  • forming an image processing chain with two or more image processors, the two or more image processors being stored in memory, wherein said processors are software modules and each performing a particular type of image transformation, to process digital image data;

    providing one or more parametric controls that are uniquely identified and within each of the two or more image processors; and

    accessing chosen controls of the one or more parametric controls within each of the two or more image processors to modify the two or more image processors for alteration of the image processing.
