L_LTIMGSFX_API L_INT L_FragmentBitmap(pBitmap, uOffset, uOpacity, uFlags)

Averages a bitmap with its shifted copies.



Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap to which to apply the effect.

L_UINT uOffset

Value that indicates the number of pixels the copied image is shifted.

L_UINT uOpacity

Value that indicates the transparency, in percent, of the copy in comparison to the original image. Possible values range from 0 to 100. A value of 0 means the resulting image will be black. A value of 100 means that each copy's value will comprise 25% of the result.

L_UINT32 uFlags

Reserved for future use. Must be 0.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


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 creates four copies of an image. Each copy is shifted by the offset amount into one of the four directions: top, left, bottom and right. Then the bitmap is averaged with its shifted copies.

Use the L_DisplaceMapBitmap function to displace a bitmap's pixels horizontally and vertically according to the values of the displacement map image.

Use the L_OffsetBitmap function to shift a bitmap's pixels horizontally and vertically.

Use the L_OffsetBitmapRgn function to move a bitmap region by the specified number of rows and columns.

This function can process the whole image or a region of the image. If a bitmap has a region, the effect is applied only to the region.

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.

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.
