maybe its just me but this sounds convoluted for the rather simply
thing avpicture_alloc() does
allocate memory for the pixels of a picture and setup the AVPicture
structure for it.

what is a image linesize alignment or rather how could the reader
IMHO if you mean that the linesize is choosen so its the smallest
possible value for the given width and pixel format then say that or
say its not rounded up to some 2^x. But "alignment" can mean alot and
in relation to pictures i dont think the intended meaning is the
most obvious to everyone

i assume it will do that too if ptr is not NULL ...
I think rather (or too) the difference should be documented

The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
