in thread wxPerl image handling (short & sweet).

Yes, you installed a modern version of Wx {grin}

If you examine http://search.cpan.org/author/MBARBON/Wx-0.08/ released about the same time as this tutorial, you can see a Wx::Image listed (also in http://search.cpan.org/src/MBARBON/Wx-0.08/lib/Wx/).

If you examine http://search.cpan.org/src/MBARBON/Wx-0.16/lib/Wx/ you can see there is no Image.pm, but http://search.cpan.org/src/MBARBON/Wx-0.16/XS/Image.xs (like http://search.cpan.org/src/MBARBON/Wx-0.08/XS/Image.xs) still exists.

This means that you only need to say "use Wx;" and the Wx::Image package will be loaded.

    Thanks - that fixed it.

    I also had to change the ConvertToBitmap method call (listed as deprecated in the doco, and not found at runtime) to a Wx::Bitmap->new call.

    So now it runs, but photos look just awful. It looks like there isn't enough colour depth, but $bmp->getDepth() returns 24.

      It seems the problem is displaying images below their native resolution. I think there's something wrong with the way the bitmap merges pixels.
      Kind of old thread but anyway. When I do my $bmp = Wx::Bitmap->new(); insted of CovertToBitmap i get overload error. Can you help me?
