                               error:(NSError **)error 

Parameters

fileName
A String containing the name of the image file to load.

bitsPerPixel
Resulting image pixel depth. Valid values are:

Value Meaning
0 Keep the original file's pixel depth (Do not convert).
1 to 8 The specified bits per pixel in the resulting image.
12 12 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
16 16 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
24 24 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
32 32 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
48 48 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
64 64 bits per pixel in the resulting image.

order
Color order for 16-bit, 24-bit, 32-bit, 48-bit, and 64-bit images. If the resulting image is less than 16 bits per pixel, this will have no effect since palletized images have no order. The following are valid values.

Value Meaning
CodecsLoadByteOrder.Rgb Red, green, and blue color order in memory
CodecsLoadByteOrder.Bgr Blue, green, and red color order in memory
CodecsLoadByteOrder.Gray 12 or 16-bit grayscale image. 12 and 16-bit grayscale images are only supported in the Document/Medical Imaging editions.
CodecsLoadByteOrder.RgbOrGray Load the image as red, green, blue OR as a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image. 12 and 16-bit grayscale images are supported in the Document/Medical Imaging editions
CodecsLoadByteOrder.BgrOrGray Load the image as blue, green, red OR as a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image. 12 and 16-bit grayscale images are supported in the Document/Medical Imaging editions
CodecsLoadByteOrder.Romm ROMM order. ROMM only supports 24 and 48-bit images
CodecsLoadByteOrder.BgrOrGrayOrRomm Load the image as red, green, blue OR as a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image OR as ROMM. 12 and 16-bit grayscale images are supported in the Document/Medical Imaging editions only. ROMM only supports 24 and 48-bit color images.

firstPage
1-based index of the first page to load.

lastPage
The 1-based index of the last page to load. Must be greater than or equal to firstPage. You can pass -1 to load from firstPage to the last page in the file.

Return Value

The RasterImage object that this method loads.

Remarks

The file can be in any supported image file format and bits per pixel, whether compressed or uncompressed.

LEADTOOLS will attempt to load corrupted files so you can see at least a portion of the image. For these images, the load methods succeed, but LoadStatus will return an error code.

Use the CodecsLoadOptions class to set up other load option parameters before calling this method.

Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale, and 48 and 64-bit color images is only available in the Document/Medical Imaging editions.

For supported formats, refer to Summary of All Supported File Formats.

LEADTOOLS loads all PDF files as Raster PDF uncompressed RasterImageFormat.RasPdf, regardless of the compression and color space used when saving the file.

Example

This example will show how to load an image using different bits/pixel and color order than saved on disk. Also, it will show how to load a single page or a group of pages from a multi-page file
