public PixbufLoader.with_mime_type (string mime_type) throws Error

Creates a new pixbuf loader object that always attempts to parse image data as if it were an image of MIME type mime_type, instead of identifying the type automatically.

This function is useful if you want an error if the image isn't the expected MIME type; for loading image formats that can't be reliably identified by looking at the data; or if the user manually forces a specific MIME type.

The list of supported mime types depends on what image loaders are installed, but typically "image/png", "image/jpeg", "image/gif", "image/tiff" and "image/x-xpixmap" are among the supported mime types. To obtain the full list of supported mime types, call get_mime_types on each of the PixbufFormat structs returned by get_formats.
