The format of the GetAuthenticPixelQueue() method is:

PixelPacket *GetAuthenticPixelQueue(const Image image)

A description of each parameter follows:

GetAuthenticPixels

GetAuthenticPixels() obtains a pixel region for read/write access. If the region is successfully accessed, a pointer to a PixelPacket array representing the region is returned, otherwise NULL is returned.

The returned pointer may point to a temporary working copy of the pixels or it may point to the original pixels in memory. Performance is maximized if the selected region is part of one row, or one or more full rows, since then there is opportunity to access the pixels in-place (without a copy) if the image is in memory, or in a memory-mapped file. The returned pointer must *never* be deallocated by the user.

Pixels accessed via the returned pointer represent a simple array of type PixelPacket. If the image type is CMYK or if the storage class is PseduoClass, call GetAuthenticIndexQueue() after invoking GetAuthenticPixels() to obtain the black color component or colormap indexes (of type IndexPacket) corresponding to the region. Once the PixelPacket (and/or IndexPacket) array has been updated, the changes must be saved back to the underlying image using SyncAuthenticPixels() or they may be lost.

The format of the GetAuthenticPixels() method is:

PixelPacket *GetAuthenticPixels(Image *image,const ssize_t x,
  const ssize_t y,const size_t columns,const size_t rows,

GetVirtualIndexQueue

GetVirtualIndexQueue() returns the virtual black channel or the colormap indexes associated with the last call to QueueAuthenticPixels() or GetVirtualPixels(). NULL is returned if the black channel or colormap indexes are not available.

const IndexPacket *GetVirtualIndexQueue(const Image *image)

A description of each parameter follows:

The format of the GetVirtualPixelQueue() method is:

const PixelPacket *GetVirtualPixelQueue(const Image image)

A description of each parameter follows:

GetVirtualPixels

GetVirtualPixels() returns an immutable pixel region. If the region is successfully accessed, a pointer to it is returned, otherwise NULL is returned. The returned pointer may point to a temporary working copy of the pixels or it may point to the original pixels in memory. Performance is maximized if the selected region is part of one row, or one or more full rows, since there is opportunity to access the pixels in-place (without a copy) if the image is in memory, or in a memory-mapped file. The returned pointer must *never* be deallocated by the user.

Pixels accessed via the returned pointer represent a simple array of type PixelPacket. If the image type is CMYK or the storage class is PseudoClass, call GetAuthenticIndexQueue() after invoking GetAuthenticPixels() to access the black color component or to obtain the colormap indexes (of type IndexPacket) corresponding to the region.

If you plan to modify the pixels, use GetAuthenticPixels() instead.

Note, the GetVirtualPixels() and GetAuthenticPixels() methods are not thread- safe. In a threaded environment, use GetCacheViewVirtualPixels() or GetCacheViewAuthenticPixels() instead.

The format of the GetVirtualPixels() method is:

const PixelPacket *GetVirtualPixels(const Image *image,const ssize_t x,
  const ssize_t y,const size_t columns,const size_t rows,
  ExceptionInfo *exception)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
x,y,columns,rows
These values define the perimeter of a region of pixels.
exception
return any errors or warnings in this structure.

QueueAuthenticPixels

QueueAuthenticPixels() queues a mutable pixel region. If the region is successfully initialized a pointer to a PixelPacket array representing the region is returned, otherwise NULL is returned. The returned pointer may point to a temporary working buffer for the pixels or it may point to the final location of the pixels in memory.

Write-only access means that any existing pixel values corresponding to the region are ignored. This is useful if the initial image is being created from scratch, or if the existing pixel values are to be completely replaced without need to refer to their pre-existing values. The application is free to read and write the pixel buffer returned by QueueAuthenticPixels() any way it pleases. QueueAuthenticPixels() does not initialize the pixel array values. Initializing pixel array values is the application's responsibility.

Performance is maximized if the selected region is part of one row, or one or more full rows, since then there is opportunity to access the pixels in-place (without a copy) if the image is in memory, or in a memory-mapped file. The returned pointer must *never* be deallocated by the user.

Pixels accessed via the returned pointer represent a simple array of type PixelPacket. If the image type is CMYK or the storage class is PseudoClass, call GetAuthenticIndexQueue() after invoking GetAuthenticPixels() to obtain the black color component or the colormap indexes (of type IndexPacket) corresponding to the region. Once the PixelPacket (and/or IndexPacket) array has been updated, the changes must be saved back to the underlying image using SyncAuthenticPixels() or they may be lost.

The format of the QueueAuthenticPixels() method is:

PixelPacket *QueueAuthenticPixels(Image *image,const ssize_t x,
  const ssize_t y,const size_t columns,const size_t rows,
  ExceptionInfo *exception)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
x,y,columns,rows
These values define the perimeter of a region of pixels.
exception
return any errors or warnings in this structure.

SetPixelCacheVirtualMethod

SetPixelCacheVirtualMethod() sets the "virtual pixels" method for the pixel cache and returns the previous setting. A virtual pixel is any pixel access that is outside the boundaries of the image cache.

The format of the SetPixelCacheVirtualMethod() method is:

VirtualPixelMethod SetPixelCacheVirtualMethod(const Image *image,
  const VirtualPixelMethod virtual_pixel_method)

A description of each parameter follows:

image

SyncAuthenticPixels

SyncAuthenticPixels() saves the image pixels to the in-memory or disk cache. The method returns MagickTrue if the pixel region is flushed, otherwise MagickFalse.

The format of the SyncAuthenticPixels() method is:

MagickBooleanType SyncAuthenticPixels(Image *image,
  ExceptionInfo *exception)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
exception
return any errors or warnings in this structure.
