image.remove - Function

1.1.1 Delete the image file associated with this image tool


Description

This function first closes the image tool which detaches it from its underlying image file. It then deletes that image file. If done=False, the image tool is still viable, and can be used with function open to open a new image file. Otherwise the image tool is destroyed. If verbose=True, the logger will receive a progress report.
