    Feature Request: Functions to read image data, and write to tiff or jpeg.

    areohbee Level 6

      Functions that render image data and make it available to plugins before writing to disk would facilitate writing plugins that take rendered image data into consideration. Also, if the aforementioned image data could be subsequently written to disk possibly after a bit of modification, it would open up a whole new world for plugins.


      Plugins don't need to access the mid-rendering stages in the raw conversion / rendering pipeline, but having a shot at post-rendered, pre-written to disk image data would allow pixel manipulating export plugins to be written. A set of image file manipulation methods would be a decent work-around, providing the ability to read/write tiff/jpeg files.
