rasterImage draws a raster image at the given locations and sizes.
rasterImage(image, xleft, ybottom, xright, ytop, angle = 0, interpolate = TRUE, ...)
rasterobject, or an object that can be coerced to one by
- a vector (or scalar) of left x positions.
- a vector (or scalar) of bottom y positions.
- a vector (or scalar) of right x positions.
- a vector (or scalar) of top y positions.
- angle of rotation (in degrees, anti-clockwise from positive x-axis, about the bottom-left corner).
- a logical vector (or scalar) indicating whether to apply linear interpolation to the image when drawing.
- graphical parameters.
The positions supplied, i.e.,
xleft, ..., are relative to the current plotting region. If the x-axis goes from 100 to 200 then
xleft should be larger than 100 and
xright should be less than 200. The position vectors will be recycled to the length of the longest.
Plotting raster images is not supported on all devices and may have limitations where supported, for example (e.g. for
X11(type = "Xlib")) is restricted to opaque colors). Problems with the rendering of raster images have been reported by users of
windows() devices under Remote Desktop, at least under its default settings.
You should not expect a raster image to be re-sized when an on-screen device is re-sized: whether it is is device-dependent.
