NAME

       al_init_image_addon - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro_image.h>

              bool al_init_image_addon(void)

DESCRIPTION

       Initializes    the   image   addon.    This   registers   bitmap   format   handlers   for
       al_load_bitmap(3alleg5),        al_load_bitmap_f(3alleg5),        al_save_bitmap(3alleg5),
       al_save_bitmap_f(3alleg5).

       The following types are built into the Allegro image addon and guaranteed to be available:
       BMP, DDS, PCX, TGA.  Every platform also supports JPEG and PNG via external dependencies.

       Other formats may be available depending on the operating system and installed  libraries,
       but are not guaranteed and should not be assumed to be universally available.

       The  DDS format is only supported to load from, and only if the DDS file contains textures
       compressed in the DXT1, DXT3 and DXT5 formats.  Note that when loading  a  DDS  file,  the
       created  bitmap  will always be a video bitmap and will have the pixel format matching the
       format in the file.
