This function converts pixels from one format to another.


string dxConvertPixels ( string pixels, string newFormat [, int quality = 80 ] )

Required Arguments

  • pixels : The pixels to convert the format of
  • newFormat : The new format required ('plain' or 'png' or 'jpeg')

Optional Arguments

  • quality : The quality of the returned pixels if the new format is 'jpeg'


Returns a copy of the pixels in the new format, or false if invalid arguments were passed to the function.


The code opens an image, read its pixels, convert the pixels to PNG, and then save it. (You can use this image to test.)

addEventHandler('onClientResourceStart', resourceRoot, function()
  local img = fileOpen('img.jpg')
  local pixels = fileRead(img, fileGetSize(img))
  local pngPixels = dxConvertPixels(pixels, 'png')
  local newImg = fileCreate('img.png')
  fileWrite(newImg, pngPixels)


Minimum server version n/a
Minimum client version 1.3

Note: Using this feature requires the resource to have the above minimum version declared in the meta.xml <min_mta_version> section. e.g. <min_mta_version client="1.3" />
