Determine the color at the given drawable coordinates

This tool determines the color at the specified coordinates. The returned color is an RGB triplet even for grayscale and indexed drawables. If the coordinates lie outside of the extents of the specified drawable, then an error is returned. If the drawable has an alpha channel, the algorithm examines the alpha value of the drawable at the coordinates. If the alpha value is completely transparent (0), then an error is returned. If the sample_merged parameter is TRUE, the data of the composite image will be used instead of that for the specified drawable. This is equivalent to sampling for colors after merging all visible layers. In the case of a merged sampling, the supplied drawable is ignored.

The image.

drawable_ID :

The drawable to pick from.

x :

This procedure adds the specified layer to the image at the given position. If the specified parent is a valid layer group (See gimp_item_is_group() and gimp_layer_group_new()) then the layer is added inside the group. If the parent is 0, the layer is added inside the main stack, outside of any group. The position argument specifies the location of the layer inside the stack (or the group, if a valid parent was supplied), starting from the top (0) and increasing. If the position is specified as -1 and the parent is specified as 0, then the layer is inserted above the active layer, or inside the group if the active layer is a layer group.

gboolean            gimp_image_clean_all                (gint32 image_ID);

Set the image dirty count to 0.

This procedure sets the specified image's dirty count to 0, allowing operations to occur without having a 'dirtied' image. This is especially useful for creating and loading images which should not initially be considered dirty, even though layers must be created, filled, and installed in the image.

Checks if the image has unsaved changes.

This procedure checks the specified image's dirty count to see if it needs to be saved. Note that saving the image does not automatically set the dirty count to 0, you need to call gimp_image_clean_all() after calling a save procedure to make the image clean.

image_ID :

Returns :

TRUE if the image has unsaved changes.

gimp_image_get_active_layer ()

gint32              gimp_image_get_active_layer         (gint32 image_ID);

Returns the specified image's active layer.

If there is an active layer, its ID will be returned, otherwise, -1. If a channel is currently active, then no layer will be. If a layer mask is active, then this will return the associated layer.

image_ID :

                                                         gint position);

Add the specified vectors to the image.

This procedure adds the specified vectors to the image at the given position. Since vectors groups are not currently supported, the parent argument must always be 0. The position argument specifies the location of the vectors inside the stack, starting from the top (0) and increasing. If the position is specified as -1, then the vectors is inserted above the active vectors.

image_ID :

The image.

vectors_ID :

The vectors.

parent_ID :

The parent vectors.

position :

The vectors position.

Returns :

TRUE on success.

gimp_image_remove_vectors ()

Remove the specified path from the image.

This procedure removes the specified path from the image. If the path doesn't exist, an error is returned.

image_ID :

The image.

vectors_ID :

The vectors object.

Returns :

TRUE on success.

gimp_image_get_active_vectors ()

gint32              gimp_image_get_active_vectors       (gint32 image_ID);

Returns the specified image's active vectors.

If there is an active path, its ID will be returned, otherwise, -1.

image_ID :

The image.

Returns :

The active vectors.

image_ID :

The image.

active_vectors_ID :

The new image active vectors.

Returns :

TRUE on success.
