[REBOL] [image magic] pixel data to/from rebol image! type
From: moliad:gm:ail at: 7-Sep-2008 21:17
anyone successfully converted rebol image! data to and from image
magick Image * structures ?
I am playing around with image magick using rebol lib interface, and
it works well, but using disk I/O to interface manipulated images is
not optimal (read slow).
I am doing digital camera image management and would like to be able
to use images read and resized from image magick directly, in order
for the application to be faster.
identifying stuff is very quick (size, depth, compression, etc), but
I'd like to be able to create my thumbnails in a single pass... right
now, I must read, resize, save (in a rebol compatible format) and
reload images within rebol... not optimal... especially since the
image data could reside in ram while the user takes decisions on what
he wants to go forwards with.
I am already using the effective image magick lib that can be found on
rebol.org... but that basically only allows us to use the command-line
stuff without needing to use a call... its a bit faster, but keeping
pointers to C manipulated data would be much quicker... I feel.
