L_LTIMGCLR_API L_INT L_GammaCorrectBitmap(pBitmap, uGamma, uFlags)
Adjusts the intensity of colors in a bitmap by changing the gamma constant that is used to map the intensity values.
Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap to change.
Unsigned integer that represents the gamma value. It can be any number greater than 0.
Because this is an unsigned integer, it is 100 times the actual gamma value. For example, use 235 to set a gamma value of 2.35.
Reserved for future use. Must be 0.
|SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|< 1||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
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.

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.
This function adjusts the gamma constant of the image data. If the image has a LUT, the function will work on the LUT, not the image data.
If the image has a LUT and you want to work on the image data, set the UseLUT Flag in the BITMAPHANDLE structure to FALSE. Then, after calling the function, reset the UseLUT flag to TRUE as follows:
pBitmap->Flags.UseLUT = FALSE;
L_GammaCorrectBitmap(pBitmap, 90, 0);
pBitmap->Flags.UseLUT = TRUE;

Win32, x64, Linux.
For complete sample code, refer to the CHILD.C module of the DEMO example.
This example loads a bitmap and applies gamma correction.
BITMAPHANDLE LeadBitmap; /* Bitmap handle to hold the loaded image. */
/* Load the bitmap, keeping the bits per pixel of the file */
nRet = L_LoadBitmap (MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("sample5.cmp")), &LeadBitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), 0, ORDER_BGR, NULL, NULL);
/* Set a gamma value of 2.5 */
nRet = L_GammaCorrectBitmap(&LeadBitmap, 250 , 0);
nRet = L_SaveBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("Result.BMP")), &LeadBitmap, FILE_BMP, 24, 0, NULL);
