Hi, For adding some unit tests, I would like to create some image files in raw format. So, that I can load them later from for use in a test harness. imwrite can't save in raw format. what format do I save in? Is this ppm ok for that purpose? Or should you store a numpy array and read it back?

Why would you like to save it and then load it for testing? Isn't creating it enough? You can create the image you want any time

If your raw data is a normal image, then any lossless format that supports your raw data depth should be fine. Try PNG. It is a lossless image format.

saving it as .exr file would also make the trick.
