Defines functions image_col_numeric

Documented in image_col_numeric

#' Colorize an Image according to Gray Scale
#' A color image can be converted to one with 
#' different degrees of gray. Then, colors in a 
#' palette can be added according to the gray 
#' degrees. The function is a simple wrapper 
#' of \code{scales::col_numeric}.
#' @param x  an image
#' read into R by \code{magick::image_read}.
#' @param palette two or more colors. The default is 
#' c("purple", "yellow") which means the deeper colors
#' on the image will become purple and the lighter 
#' yellow.
#' @param n the max num of colors that will be used. 
#' The default is 256. Note, the number of colors that 
#' really exist may be smaller than this number.
#' @param alpha whether 
#' transparency is used. Transparency
#' only exists when \code{alpha = TRUE} and your 
#' image is in the format (e. g., png) that supports 
#' transparency. The default is FALSE.
#' @param result if it is "magick" (default), the result 
#' is a picture of the same type used by package magick.
#' If it is "raster", the result is a matrix that can be 
#' used as a raster by \code{ggplot2::annotation_raster}.
#' @param res resolution that is used by 
#' \code{magick::image_graph}. The default is 144.
#' @export
