An object holding information about images in memory.
A GdkPixbuf is an object that holds information about a whole image
(all the color values [red/green/blue/alpha] for every single pixel)
Pixbufs can be created by loading an image file via
by using a given GD image object as source
or just using the normal constructor, creating an empty image.
A GdkPixbuf itself just contains the information, it does
not display it in any way. To display an image in your application,
you most likely want to use a GtkImage which uses a
GdkPixbuf as source.
