If the library is in C (or can provide C interfaces) you should be able 
to compile it into an external and use it, so yes.

That said, I would think that if you know how to parse the image data 
out, you don't need a library. Revolution is able to handle this 
directly in transcript. The one thing you absolutely need to remember 
in doing something like this is "repeat for each" When you are writing 
the image processing code, use repeat for each (char, likely) to parse 
through the data, and build a new image from that data, and you should 
be fine.
