Contert int matrix to QPixmap

  • hello everyone:

    First of all thanks a lot for reading this post and being able to help:

    I have a matrix like:

    int **matrix;

    with specific size.

    I would like to transform this matrix (a element is a pixel of the image) to a QPixmap to visualize the image in a scene.

    how can I do that¿?

    PD: From QImage to int** matrix the code looks like:

                matrix = new int *[img.width()];
                for(int i=0;i<img.width();++i)
                    matrix[i] = new int [img.height()];
                for(int i=0;i<img.width();++i){
                    for(int j=0;j<img.height();++j)
                        matrix[i][j] = QColor(img.pixel(i,j)).black() > 127 ? 0:1;

    So the invert way to QPixmap?

    Thanks a lot.

  • Hi! The way to convert your matrix to a QPixmap is to convert it to QImage first (e.g. using void QImage::setPixel(const QPoint &position, uint index_or_rgb)) and then convert the QImage to a QPixmap (using [static] QPixmap QPixmap::fromImage(const QImage &image, Qt::ImageConversionFlags flags = Qt::AutoColor)).
