Sorry for the silence.

I’ve learned that the FPImage classes are pretty slow but I’d like to try them anyways first to see if they’re acceptable.

I don’t use Delphi so the FPC docs are a little confusing for me. There is a colors/pixels property but from what I can tell they map to getting a single pixel/color at a specific location, but the docs aren’t clear because the method arguments are never shown. 

Do I need to loop through all the pixels or something and pack them into a pointer? There should be some a single continuous block of memory in this class but I can’t seem to find it using the colors/pixels property. What am I missing?
