utils.process_image as called by pictures.add requires images passed in as file paths or mpl Figure instances. On the other hand, which is used in the filename case takes a filename OR a file like object. Relying on duck typing and being able to use eg BytesIO would be more flexible in allowing for non-disk data stores to be used without intermediary disk I/O.


if isinstance(image, string_types):

elif mpl and isinstance(image, mpl.figure.Figure):

raise TypeError("Don't know what to do with that image object")
