package draw
import (
// We use type aliases (new in Go 1.9) for the exported names from the standard
// library's image/draw package. This is not merely syntactic sugar for
// type Drawer draw.Drawer
// as aliasing means that the types in this package, such as draw.Image and
// draw.Op, are identical to the corresponding draw.Image and draw.Op types in
// the standard library. In comparison, prior to Go 1.9, the code in go1_8.go
// defines new types that mimic the old but are different types.
// The package documentation, in draw.go, explicitly gives the intent of this
// package:
// This package is a superset of and a drop-in replacement for the
// image/draw package in the standard library.
// Drop-in replacement means that I can replace all of my "image/draw" imports
// with "", to access additional features in this
// package, and no further changes are required. That's mostly true, but not
// completely true unless we use type aliases.
// Without type aliases, users might need to import both "image/draw" and
// "" in order to convert from two conceptually
// equivalent but different (from the compiler's point of view) types, such as
// from one draw.Op type to another draw.Op type, to satisfy some other
// interface or function signature.
// Drawer contains the Draw method.
type Drawer = draw.Drawer
// Image is an image.Image with a Set method to change a single pixel.
type Image = draw.Image
// Op is a Porter-Duff compositing operator.
type Op = draw.Op
const (
// Over specifies ``(src in mask) over dst''.
Over Op = draw.Over
// Src specifies ``src in mask''.
Src Op = draw.Src
// Quantizer produces a palette for an image.
