DesaturateCommand Class

Summary

Converts the image to a grayscale level by reducing the saturation of each color to zero. The conversion will not change the color resolution.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public class DesaturateCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class DesaturateCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTDesaturateCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class DesaturateCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class DesaturateCommand : public RasterCommand   

Remarks
  • The image is converted to a grayscale level by reducing the saturation of each color to zero.
  • This class supports only RGB images. It does not support grayscale images.
  • Support for 48-bit and 64-bit colored images are available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This class does not support signed data images.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.

Example

Run the DesaturateCommand on an image.

   RasterCodecs codecs = new RasterCodecs(); 
   codecs.ThrowExceptionsOnInvalidImages = true; 
 
   RasterImage image = codecs.Load(Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "sample5.cmp")); 
 
   // Prepare the command 
   // Apply deSaturate effect on the image. 
   DesaturateCommand command = new DesaturateCommand(); 
   command.Run(image); 
   codecs.Save(image, Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "Result.jpg"), RasterImageFormat.Jpeg, 24); 
 
}
