pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap;

pointer to the bitmap handle

L_UINT uRatio;

color adjustment percentage

L_UINT uDim;

size of the pencil coloring neighborhood

L_UINT32 uFlags;

flags

Applies an effect to a bitmap that makes it look like it has been drawn with colored pencils.

Parameter

Description

pBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to apply the effect.

uRatio

Value that represents how much the bitmap colors should be adjusted so they appear to be colored pencil colors. Valid values range from 0 to 100. A value of 0 means that the bitmap will not have any change in pixel values, whereas a value of 100 means that the maximum possible amount will be added to the pixel values.

uDim

Value that represents the size of the pencil coloring neighborhood. It is the length, in pixels, of one side of a square. Valid values range from 0 to 100. Increasing this value increases the thickness of the edges that are detected.

uFlags

Reserved for future use. Must be 0.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Example

The following example loads a bitmap and applies the colored pencil effect:

L_INT ColoredPencilBitmapExample(L_VOID) 
{ 
   L_INT nRet; 
   BITMAPHANDLE LeadBitmap;   /* Bitmap handle to hold the loaded image. */ 
 
   /* Load the bitmap, keeping the bits per pixel of the file */ 
 
   nRet = L_LoadBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("ImageProcessingDemo\\NaturalFruits.jpg")), &LeadBitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), 0, ORDER_BGR, NULL, NULL); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
 
   /* pencil color the bitmap with Ratio value of 50 and with a neighborhood of 3x3 pixels*/ 
   nRet = L_ColoredPencilBitmap(&LeadBitmap,  50, 3, 0); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   nRet = L_SaveBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("Result.BMP")), &LeadBitmap, FILE_BMP, 24, 0, NULL); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   //free bitmap  
   if(LeadBitmap.Flags.Allocated)   
      L_FreeBitmap(&LeadBitmap);    
   return SUCCESS; 
}
