# Getting Started

To get started, you will first need to install AstroImages. After starting Julia, enter package-mode by typing ] and then

pkg> add AstroImages

To display images and save them in traditional graphics formats like PNG, JPG, GIF, etc., you will also need to add the ImageIO package. Once installed, this package doesn't need to be loaded explicitly.

For some of the more advanced visualizations you may also want Plots:

pkg> add Plots

using AstroImages
