Quick tour

Storage images

Images returned from load or passed to save must be Convertile from and to StorageImages. The StorageImage type is defined as:

data StorageImage = GreyStorage Grey | RGBAStorage RGBA | RGBStorage RGB

The following example reads an image from a file, automatically determining the image format, and then writes it back into a ByteString as a greyscale PNG image.

{-# LANGUAGE ScopedTypeVariables #-}
main = do
    io <- load Autodetect "image.jpg"
    case io of
        Right (rgb :: RGB) -> -- Forces the RGB colorspace for the loaded image.
            let grey = convert rgb :: Grey
                bs   = saveBS PNG grey
            in print bs
        Left err           -> do
            putStrLn "Unable to load the image:"
            print err
