Look at graphics module !
you 'll see that SDK not 1.2 don't have inspect (but also no open,load,save,transpose,resize function) !
But perhaps you can take _graphics.pyd from 2ndEd version and put in \system\libs
It works for me :-)
Do yo mean that there will be no images support with Canvas on 1st Ed. phones at all ? If it's true it's a pitty...
Can't you make a restricted API, for exemple only a limited file format choice ? MBM support ?
Is it possible to extend the canvas with third party C++ "plugins" ?
