What i am concerned here is what are the APIs for getting the data and then setting it as a source.I tried with these APIs but i dont know whether this is correct or not.
cairo_pattern_t* cairoPattern = cairo_pattern_create_for_surface(mData->mSurface);
Note: ctx is attached to another cairo surface. To which i want to draw the original contents
Is this correct or not?

Thats true. But here what i want to paint the image in the target without scaling it. That is with the original size.

Only through creating a bigger surface and transferring the data with
'cairo_set_source_surface() ; cairo_paint()'..
The only surface type that seems to have any notion of resize (in
cairo API) is xlib, and that is for reacting to outside changes to the
And just to clarify, cairo's scaling works in the same fashion. It
scales the source (which may be an image or something else) and
paints it to the target. It never changes the source image.
