The paper presents an approach of using algorithmic skeletons for adding data parallelism to an image processing library. The method is used for parallelizing image processing applications composed of low-level image operators on a distributed memory system. In this way, a user who wants to parallelize an image processing application is not involved in the design and the implementation of parallel algorithms, but his only task is how to select for each low-level operator the appropriate skeleton to obtain the parallel version of the application. Example of the multibaseline stereo vision image processing aplication is given for reference.
