A dedicated page with documentation is available at http://imread. This page is just a summary.
If you are using mahotas-imread in a scientific publication, please cite the mahotas paper (imread is an off-shoot and does not, currently, have its own paper):

This project is a spin off of mahotas (for reasons of maintainability, I felt it was better to not emcumber mahotas with all the IO code that imread contains).
This is a simple module, which has two main functions
- reads an image from a file
- saves an image to a file
It currently works on PNG, JPEG, and TIFF (including some TIFF variations such as STK or LSM).
Where can I get it?
Github as usual.
