Yes, they are methods of a class.  self.current_image is just a normal
python variable that stores a reference to a class instance.  You can call
it a 'pointer' because it's probably similar to that internally, but it's
easier just to think about it as a label for a specific calss instance.

You need to give us the full code.
There will be an import statement at the top, and you can figure out where
current_image is created.  These clues will lead you to the library that
they're using.
