NAME

       PS_open_image_file — Opens an image from file

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pslib.h>

       int  PS_open_image_file(PSDoc  *psdoc,  const char *type, const char *filename, const char
       *stringparam, int intparam)

DESCRIPTION

       This function reads image data from a file. It can read png,  jpeg,  gif,  tiff,  and  eps
       files.  png,  jpeg,  gif, and tiff images can only be read if pslib has been compiled with
       support for those formats.  Once an image has been loaded it can be placed on a page  with
       PS_place_image(3).

       Since  version  0.4.5 of pslib images are read by default for later reuse. This means that
       the  image  is  saved  into  a  so  called  reusable  stream  object.   Later   calls   of
       PS_place_image(3)              will  only put a short sequence of postscript code into the
       output file replaying the image.  This reduces the overall postscript file size, speeds up
       its  processing  by  the  postscript  rip  and allows to place images into templates. This
       behaviour can  be  turned  off  by  setting  the  parameter  `imagereuse'  to  false  with
       PS_set_parameter(3).

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  identifier  of  image  or  zero in case of an error.  The identifier is a positiv
       number greater 0.
