Disable image_info() while using `magick::image_read()`


While reading in images in R using magick::image_read(), I am only interested in the image displayed in the Viewer pane and not the image information displayed in the console. How can I disable the latter?

:wave: @Shel and welcome on this forum!

All magick functions return magick-image objects. The information printed by image_scale() can’t be turned off. But there is a possible workaround! (thanks @jeroenooms)

logo <- image_read("logo:")
logo <- image_scale(logo, "400")
print(logo, info = FALSE)

  print(info = FALSE)
