CreateAlphaImage Method

Summary

Creates a grayscale image from this RasterImage alpha channel data.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public RasterImage CreateAlphaImage() 
Public Function CreateAlphaImage() As Leadtools.RasterImage 
public Leadtools.RasterImage CreateAlphaImage() 
- (nullable LTRasterImage *)createAlphaImage:(NSError **)error 
public RasterImage createAlphaImage() 
 function Leadtools.RasterImage.CreateAlphaImage() 
public: 
Leadtools.RasterImage^ CreateAlphaImage();  

Return Value

The newly create image, which contains the source image alpha channel data.

Remarks

Only 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit images can have an alpha channel. If the source image has another color resolution, the result is an image filled with zeros.

Typically, the alpha channel contains a mask that is used for transparency.

For more information, refer to Implementing Transparency.
