L_ColorIntensityBalance

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTIMGCLR_API L_INT L_ColorIntensityBalance(pBitmap, pShadows, pMidTone, pHighLight, bLuminance, uFlags)

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap;

pointer to the bitmap handle

pBALANCEDATA pShadows;

pointer to Shadows information

pBALANCEDATA pMidTone;

pointer to Midtones information

pBALANCEDATA pHighLight;

pointer to Highlights information

L_BOOL bLuminance;

value that indicates whether to preserve luminance

L_UINT32 uFlags;

flags

Changes the distribution of the red, green, or blue channels.

Parameter Description
pBitmap Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to apply the effect.
pShadows Pointer to structure used to adjust the dark tones.
pMidTone Pointer to structure used to adjust the medium tones (midtones).
pHighLight Pointer to structure used to adjust the bright tones (highlights).
bLuminance Value that indicates whether to preserve luminance. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Preserve luminance.
  FALSE Do not preserve luminance.
uFlags Reserved for future use. Must be 0.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function does not support signed data images. It returns the error code ERROR_SIGNED_DATA_NOT_SUPPORTED if a signed data image is passed to this function.

This function changes the distribution of the red, green, or blue channels to make the colors in an image more accurate or more different.

Each color component is treated independently. The color range for each component is split into Shadows, Midtones and Highlights based on the intensity. The values in each range are adjusted differently using the BALANCEDATA structures. Positive values from BALANCEDATA for a component cause that particular component to become brighter, whereas negative values cause the component to become darker. A value of 0 leaves the component unchanged.

The preserve luminance option aims to minimize the luminance change in the image.

This function supports only RGB images. It does not support grayscale images.

This function supports 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 48 and 64-bit color images is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.

To update a status bar or detect a user interrupt during execution of this function, refer to L_SetStatusCallback.

This function does not support 32-bit grayscale images. It returns the error code ERROR_GRAY32_UNSUPPORTED if a 32-bit grayscale image is passed to this function.
