LPTSTR pFileName

L_INT nSubCellIndex

A zero-based index into the image list attached to the cell. This sub-cell contains the image the annotation that will be saved. Pass -2 to refer to the selected sub-cell. If the cell contains 1 frame then the nSubCellIndex should be 0.

L_INT nStartPage

CELL_APPLYTOTHIS [0x00000000] Apply the feature to this cell only.
CELL_APPLYTOALL [0x10000000] Apply the feature to all the cells in the Image Viewer.
