GrayScaleExtendedCommand Class

Converts any image to a gray scale image without changing its resolution.
public class GrayScaleExtendedCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class GrayScaleExtendedCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTGrayScaleExtendedCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class GrayScaleExtendedCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class GrayScaleExtendedCommand : public RasterCommand   
  • RedFactor + GreenFactor + BlueFactor must equal 1000. (Internally the values are divided by 1000).

  • For each pixel in the image the red, green and blue values are modified by the RedFactor, GreenFactor and BlueFactor properties, respectively. This allows the user to give more weight to one color, essentially enhancing that color, before the pixel is converted to grayscale.

  • For example, if an object of this class has the RedFactor set to 500, the GreenFactor set to 250 and the BlueFactor set to 250, the red value of each pixel will get 50 percent of the weight when determining the grayscale value. The green value will get 25 percent of the weight and the blue value will get 25 percent of the weight when determining the grayscale value. This highlights or enhances the red in the image, prior to conversion to grayscale.
  • This class 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 command does not support signed images.

For more information, refer to Grayscale Images.


Run the GrayScaleExtendedCommand on an image with RedFactor = 300, GreenFactor = 590, and BlueFactor = 110.
