PNG Convert

P(NG)Convert

Simple PNG conversion tool using libpng.

Build

It should be simple to build the project using make. Please note that the project requires both Python and libpng.

make
make install


To build pconvert for a specific system use the SYS Makefile variable:

make SYS=darwin


It's also possible to build the Python extension and install in a local machine.

python setup.py install


Python Methods

blend_images

Argument Type Mandatory Default Description
bottom_path str true - The path to the bottom image.
top_path str true - The path to the top image.
target_path str true - The path of the target (resulting) image.
algorithm str false multiplicative The blending algorithm to be used.
is_inline bool false false If the inline methods should be used to perform the blending.

blend_multiple

Argument Type Mandatory Default Description
paths list true - The sequence of paths of the images to be blended from bottom to top.
target_path str true - The path of the target (resulting) image.
algorithm str false multiplicative The blending algorithm to be used to blend all images in a pair-wise fashion.
algorithms list false - The sequence of blending algorithms to use for each blending operation. If defined, algorithm will not be used.
is_inline bool false false If the inline methods should be used to perform the blending.

Example

Running a simple set of composition can be done using:

pconvert compose assets/demo/


To be able to convert one image into a normalized PNG format use the convert command as following:

pconvert convert assets/demo/tux.png tux.out.png


To run a simple benchmark operation (results in benchmark.txt) using pconvert use:

pconvert benchmark assets/demo/


Conan

This package makes use of the Conan package manager to use run:

pip install --upgrade conan
conan install . --build missing


It's important to note that the usage of Conan is not mandatory and it's still possible to build P(NG)Convert without it.

conan install . --build missing
cmake .
make


Windows

conan install . --build missing
