Chicken bindings for the imlib2 image library.
This egg is hosted on the CHICKEN Subversion repository:
If you want to check out the source code repository of this egg and you are not familiar with Subversion, see this page.
Note that currently not all imlib2 functionality has been added to this egg.
- font-load filename sizeprocedure
Load and return a true type font from file filename sized size pixels. This respects the system's font path.
- image-create width heightprocedure
Returns a new imlib2 image object which represents a transparent image of the given size.
- image? imgprocedure
Determine if img is an imlib image.
- image-destroy imgprocedure
Destroy the given image object.
- image-clone imgprocedure
Create a fresh copy of the image object img.
- image-load filenameprocedure
Returns a new imlib image object which represents the image stored in the file filename. This automatically uses the correct loader, as determined by Imlib2 on the basis of the file's extension.
- image-save img filenameprocedure
Store the imlib image object represented by img in the file filename. The right loader is automatically selected by Imlib2 if you haven't set it explicitly with image-format-set!.
- make-image pointerprocedure
Construct an imlib image object for pointer.
- image-format imgprocedure
Request the currently set format for the image, or #f if no format has been associated with it yet.
- image-format-set! img formatprocedure
Explicitly set the file format on the image for subsequent calls to image-save. The format argument is passed to the loaders in the same way a file extension would be.
- image-width imgprocedure
Returns the width of the supplied image, in pixels.
- image-height imgprocedure
Returns the height of the supplied image, in pixels.
- image-filename imgprocedure
Returns the original filename for the image, if it was loaded from a file. Otherwise it returns #f.
- image-alpha? imgprocedure
Does the image have an alpha layer?
- image-alpha-set! img valueprocedure
Enable or disable alpha layer support for the image.
- image-track-changes-on-disk imgprocedure
From now on, track changes on disk to the file that is associated with img. By default, all images are cached by imlib2 in such a way that closing and reopening it just pulls it from cache instead of really loading it. Unfortunately, there's no way to request the status of this option or disable it.
- image-get-data-for-reading-only imgprocedure
Get a read-only pointer on img's content data.
All these operations create a copy of the image. This can eat a lot of memory if you're not careful. Use the methods ending with a bang if you just want to destructively update an existing image.
- (image-blend img src-img #!key (merge-alpha #t) (src-x 0) (src-y 0) (src-width (image-width src-img)) (src-height (image-height src-img)) (dest-x 0) (dest-y 0) (dest-width (image-width src-img)) (dest-height (image-height src-img)))procedure
- (image-blend! img src-img #!key (merge-alpha #t) (src-x 0) (src-y 0) (src-width (image-width src-img)) (src-height (image-height src-img)) (dest-x 0) (dest-y 0) (dest-width (image-width src-img)) (dest-height (image-height src-img)))procedure
Blend src-img onto img, possibly cropping and scaling it. The default behavior is to blend src-img in total and in its original size onto the top left corner of img.
- image-flip-diagonal imgprocedure
- image-flip-diagonal! imgprocedure
Diagonally flip img. This works like transposing a matrix.
- image-orientate img orientationprocedure
- image-orientate! img orientationprocedure
Orientate img. According to imlib2 documentation, this procedure rotates the image by 90 degrees orientation times. However, the procedure accepts values between 0 and 7, inclusive. What values 4-7 do, I'm not really sure of. They appear to rotate the image (mod orientation 3) times 90 degrees, but flip it as well.
- image-sharpen img radiusprocedure
- image-sharpen! img radiusprocedure
Sharpen img. The radius argument is an integer number indicating the degree of sharpening that has to take place. I am not sure what a negative value means, but it is allowed.
- image-blur img radiusprocedure
- image-blur! img radiusprocedure
Blur img. The radius argument is a positive integer indicating the blur matrix radius, so 0 has no effect.
- image-tile imgprocedure
- image-tile! imgprocedure
- image-tile-horizontal imgprocedure
- image-tile-horizontal! imgprocedure
- image-tile-vertical imgprocedure
- image-tile-vertical! imgprocedure
Adjust img in such a way around the edges, such that it is suitable for use in repeating ("tiled") patterns on all sides, only horizontally or only vertically.
- image-crop img x y width heightprocedure
- image-crop! img x y width heightprocedure
Crop img. The x and y parameters indicate the upper left pixel of the new image. The width and height parameters indicate the size of the new image. Returns #f on failure.
Note: This procedure will return an image of the requested size, but with undefined contents if you pass it arguments that lie outside the image! I am still unsure if this is a bug or feature.
- image-scale img width heightprocedure
Create a new, scaled copy of the image.
- image-crop&scale img src-x src-y src-width src-height dest-width dest-heightprocedure
Create a new, cropped and scaled copy of img. The arguments src-x, src-y, src-width and src-height indicate cropping dimensions as per image-crop, in the original image. The dest-width and dest-height arguments indicate the new image's width and height.
- image-pixel/rgba img x yprocedure
Returns the RGBA (red, green, blue, alpha) color values for the image at the specified pixel coordinate as 4 values.
- image-pixel/hsva img x yprocedure
Returns the HSVA (hue, saturation, value, alpha) color values for the image at the specified pixel coordinate as 4 values.
- image-pixel/hlsa img x yprocedure
Returns the HLSA (hue, lightness, saturation, alpha) color values for the image at the specified pixel coordinate as 4 values.
- image-pixel/cmya img x yprocedure
Returns the CMYA (cyan, magenta, yellow, alpha) color values for the image at the specified pixel coordinate as 4 values.
Note: This could use some more work. Perhaps the procedures from the previous section should return values of these types instead.
- color? colorprocedure
Is the specified object an imlib color specifier?
- color/rgba r g b aprocedure
Create a color specifier for the given RGBA values.
- color/hsva h s v aprocedure
Create a color specifier for the given HSVA values.
- color/hlsa h l s aprocedure
Create a color specifier for the given HLSA values.
- color/cmya c m y aprocedure
Create a color specifier for the given CMYA values.
The following procedures all destructively update the image object.
- image-draw-pixel img color x yprocedure
Draw a pixel in the given image on the given coordinates with the given color specifier.
- image-draw-line img color x1 y1 x2 y2procedure
Draw a line in the image from the coordinates (x1,y1) to (x2,y2).
- image-draw-rectangle img color x y width heightprocedure
Draw a one-pixel wide outline of a rectangle with the given color. The x and y coordinates are of the upper left corner of the rectangle.
- image-fill-rectangle img color x y width heightprocedure
Same as image-draw-rectangle, but filled in.
- image-draw-text img font color x y text #!optional (direction 'to-right) (angle #f)procedure
Draw the string text on img at coordinates x / y with color and font. Possible direction symbols are to-right, to-left, to-down, to-up and to-angle. The optional angle argument must be supplied when direction is to-angle.
