# Expressing Qt Love

For example, recently I had the requirement that I wanted to be able to save images displayed by QGraphicsPixmapItem to a file. In a matter of a couple of minutes I extended QObject and QGraphicsPixmapItem, wrote an override for the contextMenuEvent to display a "Save Image" menu, and a simple slot to show a "Save File" dialog. Now all the images I'm showing on my QGraphicsView can be optionally saved to a file at the user's request.
