Instance Method Details

#image(file, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Add the image at filename to the current page. Currently only JPG and PNG files are supported.

NOTE: Prawn is very slow at rendering PNGs with alpha channels. The workaround for those who don't mind installing RMagick is to use:

github.com/amberbit/prawn-fast-png

Arguments:

file

path to file or an object that responds to #read

Options:

:at

an array [x,y] with the location of the top left corner of the image.

:position

One of (:left, :center, :right) or an x-offset

:vposition

One of (:top, :center, :center) or an y-offset

:height

the height of the image [actual height of the image]

:width

the width of the image [actual width of the image]

:scale

scale the dimensions of the image proportionally

:fit

scale the dimensions of the image proportionally to fit inside [width,height]

Prawn::Document.generate("image2.pdf", :page_layout => :landscape) do     
  pigs = "#{Prawn::BASEDIR}/data/images/pigs.jpg" 
  image pigs, :at => [50,450], :width => 450                                      

  dice = "#{Prawn::BASEDIR}/data/images/dice.png"
  image dice, :at => [50, 450], :scale => 0.75 
end

If only one of :width / :height are provided, the image will be scaled proportionally. When both are provided, the image will be stretched to fit the dimensions without maintaining the aspect ratio.

If :at is provided, the image will be place in the current page but the text position will not be changed.

If instead of an explicit filename, an object with a read method is passed as file, you can embed images from IO objects and things that act like them (including Tempfiles and open-uri objects).

require "open-uri"

Prawn::Document.generate("remote_images.pdf") do 
  image open("http://prawn.majesticseacreature.com/media/prawn_logo.png")
end

This method returns an image info object which can be used to check the dimensions of an image object if needed. (See also: Prawn::Images::PNG , Prawn::Images::JPG)
