L_MaskConvolutionBitmap

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTIMGEFX_API L_INT L_MaskConvolutionBitmap(pBitmap, nAngle, uDepth, uHeight, uFlags)

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap;

pointer to the bitmap handle

L_INT nAngle;

angle of the apparent light source

L_UINT uDepth;

depth of the 3D effect

L_UINT uHeight;

height of the 3D effect

L_UINT uFlags;

flags

Applies various 3d effects to a bitmap.

Parameter Description
pBitmap Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the target bitmap.
nAngle Angle of apparent light source, in hundredths of degrees. Possible values range from 36000 to 36000.
uDepth The depth of the 3D effect. (This value is divided internally by 100). This value is used as a multiplier for the individual mask values.
uHeight Non-zero value greater than 2, that represents the height of the mask matrix. This value determines the height of the 3D effect. The larger the value, the more complex and time-consuming the operations will be.
uFlags Flag that indicates which mask to use in the convolution process. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  MSKC_EMBOSS [0x0000] Apply the Emboss Mask on the Bitmap.
  MSKC_EDGE [0x0001] Apply the Edge Detection Mask on the Bitmap.
  MSKC_ESPLOTCH [0x0002] Apply the Emboss-Splotch Mask on the Bitmap.
  MSKC_SPLOTCH [0x0003] Apply the Splotch Mask on the Bitmap.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

For MSKC_EDGE, the results are the same for opposite angles. For example, angles 0 and 180 have the same result when used with the edge detection mask.

When an image undergoes image convolution each pixel of the image is multiplied by a mask to create a new pixel value. The mask is an array of values that describes the weight that should be given to each of the pixels surrounding a specific pixel. The new pixel value is the result of the mask sum being divided by the mask weight. Using different masks result in different alterations of the image. The masks used in this function result in different types of edge detection.

This function supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.

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.

Example

The following example applies the emboss mask over the bitmap:

L_INT MaskConvolutionBitmapExample(L_VOID) 
{ 
   L_INT nRet; 
   BITMAPHANDLE LeadBitmap;    
   nRet = L_LoadBitmap (MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("ImageProcessingDemo\\NaturalFruits.jpg")), &LeadBitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), 0, ORDER_BGR, NULL, NULL); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   nRet = L_MaskConvolutionBitmap(&LeadBitmap, 500, 45, 3, MSKC_EMBOSS); 
   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; 
}
