L_LTDIS_API L_UINT L_GetPaintGamma(pBitmap)

Gets the current gamma correction value for the specified bitmap. This value is set by the L_SetPaintGamma function.



Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap from which to retrieve the gamma value. This cannot be NULL.


Because this is an unsigned integer, the return value is 100 times the actual gamma value. For example, 235 represents a gamma value of 2.35. Gamma can be any number greater than 0. The default value is 100.


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.
