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?

[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)

[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
[erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
[Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
[Your Mother]: All caused by the political fallout of Carter/Reagan when the Afghan chickens came home to roost on 9/11.
[Your Mother]: US foreign policy is toxic and like a broken record.
