L_INT LBitmap::GammaCorrectExt(uGamma, uFlags)

L_UINT uGamma;

gamma value

L_UINT uFlags;


Adjusts the intensity of colors in a bitmap by changing the gamma constant that is used to map the intensity values. Either of two different color spaces can be specified.

Parameter Description
uGamma Any value greater than 0 that represents the gamma value. This value is divided internally by 100.
uFlags Flag that indicates which color space to use. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  RGB_SPACE [0x0001] Adjust the intensity of the pixel colors across the RGB color space.
  YUV_SPACE [0x0002] Adjust the intensity of the pixel colors across the YUV color space.

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function is like the LBitmap::GammaCorrect function, but has been extended to allow the specification of the color space to be used.

Intensity values ideally follow a logarithmic progression, because the eye perceives changes in intensity as being equal when the ratio of change is equal. For example, we would see a change from 0.1 to 0.2 as being equal to a change from 0.2 to 0.4.

Gamma is a standard constant that is used to calculate the progression. For most CRTs the gamma constant is in the range of 2.2 to 2.5.

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

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 only in the Document/Medical 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.
