NAMEEXPORT_GRAYSCALE

       -  save  image  as  grayscale.   EXPORT_ALPHA  -  save  alpha  channel  if  format permits
       EXPORT_APPEND - if format allows multiple images - image will be appended

FUNCTION

       Some common flags that could be used while writing images into different file formats.

       libAfterImage/ASImageExportParams

NAMEASImageExportParams

       - union of structures holding parameters for export into different file formats.

DESCRIPTION

       Treatment of this union depends on what type of export was requested.

SOURCE

           typedef union ASImageExportParams {
               ASImageFileTypes   type;

       libAfterImage/export/ASImage2file()

NAMEASImage2file()

SYNOPSIS

       Bool ASImage2file( ASImage *im, const char *dir, const char *file,
                     ASImageFileTypes type, ASImageExportParams *params );

INPUTS

       im     - Image to write out.

       dir    - directory name to write file into (optional, could be NULL)

       file   - file name with or without directory name.

       type   - output file format. ( see ASImageFileTypes )

       params - pointer to ASImageExportParams union's member for the above type, with additional
              export  parameters,  such  as  quality, compression, etc. If NULL then all defaults
              will be used.

RETURN VALUE

       True on success. False - failure.

DESCRIPTION

       ASImage2file will construct filename out of dir and file components  and  then  will  call
       specific filter to write out file in requested format.

NOTES

       Some  formats support compression, others support lossy compression, yet others allows you
       to limit number of colors and colordepth.  Each specific  filter  will  try  to  interpret
       those parameters in its own way.
