Tizen Native API  6.0
Image Store and Load

Eet efficiently stores and loads images, including alpha channels and lossy compressions.

Eet can handle both lossy compression with different levels of quality and non-lossy compression with different compression levels. It's also possible, given an image data, to only read its header to get the image information without decoding the entire content for it.

The encode family of functions will take an image raw buffer and its parameters and compress it in memory, returning the new buffer. Likewise, the decode functions will read from the given location in memory and return the uncompressed image.

The read and write functions will, respectively, encode and decode to or from an Eet file, under the specified key.

These functions are fairly low level and the same functionality can be achieved using Evas and Edje, making it much easier to work with images as well as not needing to worry about things like scaling them.

int  size,
unsigned int *  w,
unsigned int *  h,
int *  alpha,
int *  compress,
int *  quality,
Eet_Image_Encoding lossy 
)

Decodes Image data into pixel data.

Parameters:
dataThe encoded pixel data.
sizeThe size, in bytes, of the encoded pixel data.
wA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the width in pixels.
hA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the height in pixels.
alphaA pointer to the int to hold the alpha flag.
compressA pointer to the int to hold the compression amount.
qualityA pointer to the int to hold the quality amount.
lossyA pointer to the int to hold the lossiness flag.
Returns:
The image pixel data decoded

This function takes encoded pixel data and decodes it into raw RGBA pixels on success.

It works exactly like eet_data_image_read(), but it takes the encoded data in the data buffer of size size, instead of reading from a file. All the others parameters are also the same.

On success the function returns a pointer to the image data decoded. The calling application is responsible for calling free() on the image data when it is done with it. On failure NULL is returned and the parameter values may not contain any sensible data.

void* eet_data_image_encode ( const void *  data,
int *  size_ret,
unsigned int  w,
unsigned int  h,
int  alpha,
int  compress,
int  quality,
Eet_Image_Encoding  lossy 
)

Encodes image data for storage or transmission.

Parameters:
dataA pointer to the image pixel data.
size_retA pointer to an int to hold the size of the returned data.
wThe width of the image in pixels.
hThe height of the image in pixels.
alphaThe alpha channel flag.
compressThe compression amount.
qualityThe quality encoding amount.
lossyThe lossiness flag.
Returns:
The encoded image data.

This function stakes image pixel data and encodes it with compression and possible loss of quality (as a trade off for size) for storage or transmission to another system.

It works like eet_data_image_write(), but instead of writing the encoded image into an Eet file, it allocates a new buffer of the size required and returns the encoded data in it.

On success this function returns a pointer to the encoded data that you can free with free() when no longer needed.

int *  quality,
Eet_Image_Encoding lossy 
)

Decodes Image data header only to get information.

Parameters:

sizeThe size, in bytes, of the encoded pixel data.
wA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the width in pixels.
hA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the height in pixels.

This function works exactly like eet_data_image_header_read(), but instead of reading from an Eet file, it takes the buffer of size size pointed by data, which must be a valid Eet encoded image.

On success the function returns 1 indicating the header was read and decoded properly, or 0 on failure.

)

Reads just the header data for an image and dont decode the pixels.

Parameters:
efA valid eet file handle opened for reading.
nameName of the entry. eg: "/base/file_i_want".
wA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the width in pixels.
hA pointer to the unsigned int to hold the height in pixels.
alphaA pointer to the int to hold the alpha flag.
compressA pointer to the int to hold the compression amount.
qualityA pointer to the int to hold the quality amount.
lossyA pointer to the int to hold the lossiness flag.
Returns:
1 on successful decode, 0 otherwise

Reads and decodes the image header data stored under the given key and Eet file.

The information decoded is placed in each of the parameters, which must be provided. The width and height, measured in pixels, will be stored under the variables pointed by w and h, respectively. If the read or decode of the header fails, this values will be 0. The alpha parameter will be 1 or 0, denoting if the alpha channel of the image is used or not. If the image was losslessly compressed, the compress parameter will hold the compression amount used, ranging from 0 to 9 and lossy will be 0. In the case of lossy compression, lossy will be 1, and the compression quality will be placed under quality, with a value ranging from 0 to 100.

Returns:
The image pixel data decoded

Reads and decodes the image stored in the given Eet file under the named key.

The returned pixel data is a linear array of pixels starting from the top-left of the image, scanning row by row from left to right. Each pile is a 32bit value, with the high byte being the alpha channel, the next being red, then green, and the low byte being blue.

The rest of the parameters are the same as in eet_data_image_header_read().

On success the function returns a pointer to the image data decoded. The calling application is responsible for calling free() on the image data when it is done with it. On failure NULL is returned and the parameter values may not contain any sensible data.

Reads image data from the named key in the eet file and store it in the given buffer.

Parameters:

nameName of the entry. eg: "/base/file_i_want".
src_xThe starting x coordinate from where to dump the stream.

compressA pointer to the int to hold the compression amount.
qualityA pointer to the int to hold the quality amount.
lossyA pointer to the int to hold the lossiness flag.
Returns:
1 on success, 0 otherwise.

Reads and decodes the image stored in the given Eet file, placing the resulting pixel data in the buffer pointed by the user.

Like eet_data_image_read(), it takes the image data stored under the name key in the ef file, but instead of returning a new buffer with the pixel data, it places the result in the buffer pointed by d, which must be provided by the user and of sufficient size to hold the requested portion of the image.

The src_x and src_y parameters indicate the top-left corner of the section of the image to decode. These have to be higher or equal than 0 and less than the respective total width and height of the image. The width and height of the section of the image to decode are given in w and h and also can't be higher than the total width and height of the image.

The row_stride parameter indicates the length in bytes of each line in the destination buffer and it has to be at least w * 4.

All the other parameters are the same as in eet_data_image_read().

On success the function returns 1, and 0 on failure. On failure the parameter values may not contain any sensible data.

const char *  name,

unsigned int  w,
unsigned int  h,
int  alpha,
int  compress,
int  quality,

)

Writes image data to the named key in an eet file.

Parameters:
efA valid eet file handle opened for writing.
nameName of the entry. eg: "/base/file_i_want".
dataA pointer to the image pixel data.
wThe width of the image in pixels.
hThe height of the image in pixels.
alphaThe alpha channel flag.
compressThe compression amount.
qualityThe quality encoding amount.
lossyThe lossiness flag.
Returns:
Success if the data was encoded and written or not.

This function takes image pixel data and encodes it in an eet file stored under the supplied name key, and returns how many bytes were actually written to encode the image data.

The data expected is the same format as returned by eet_data_image_read. If this is not the case weird things may happen. Width and height must be between 1 and 8000 pixels. The alpha flags can be 0 or 1 (0 meaning the alpha values are not useful and 1 meaning they are). Compress can be from 0 to 9 (0 meaning no compression, 9 meaning full compression). This is only used if the image is not lossily encoded. Quality is used on lossy compression and should be a value from 0 to 100. The lossy flag can be 0 or 1. 0 means encode losslessly and 1 means to encode with image quality loss (but then have a much smaller encoding).

On success this function returns the number of bytes that were required to encode the image data, or on failure it returns 0.
