QImageWriter: improve documentation regarding use of resources
QImageWriter's plugin can open devices while operating and only free them on destruction which means that if one wants to act on the file written if must first destroy the writer's instance. This patch adds the suggestion to use a scope to avoid that problem. Change-Id: I239157ea86c4a93faab237fe1860312a3c7ac7a2 Reviewed-by: Eirik Aavitsland <eirik.aavitsland@qt.io>
