Each of its subclasses knows how to draw an image from a particular kind of source data. While an NSImageRep subclass can be used directly, it is typically through an NSImage object. An NSImage object manages a group of image representations, choosing the best one for the current output device.
Subclasses are not implemented in the plugin currently.
