Perhaps the most important computer vision-related class in Qt, QImage is the main Qt class for handling image data and it provides pixel-level access to images, along with many other functions for working with image data. We are going to cover the most important subset of its constructors and functionalities, especially the ones important when working with OpenCV.

QImage image(320, 240, QImage::Format_RGB888);
This creates a standard RGB color image that ...
