L_LTIMGKRN_API L_INT L_ImgKrnSignalToNoiseRatio(bitmap, ratio)

Finds the signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) in an image.



Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap to be measured.

L_DOUBLE *ratio

Pointer to a variable to be updated with the SNR amount.


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


Calculates the SNR and updates the value of ratio with the 10*log10 of the real ratio. This value gives an indication of the homogeneity of adjacent pixels in an image.

Note: All functions with the L_ImgKrn prefix modify the underlying properties of the input BITMAPHANDLE, including but not limited to:

To avoid BITMAPHANDLE property fidelity loss, pass a copy of your BITMAPHANDLE to all L_ImgKrn* functions.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64, Linux.

This example loads a bitmap and finds the signal-to-noise-ratio.

   L_INT ret; 
   BITMAPHANDLE bitmap;   /* Bitmap handle to hold the loaded image. */ 
   L_DOUBLE snr; 
   /* Load the bitmap */ 
   ret = L_LoadBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("cannon.jpg")), &bitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), 0, ORDER_BGR, NULL, NULL); 
   if (ret != SUCCESS) 
      return ret; 
   /* Apply L_ImgKrnSignalToNoiseRatio and find S/N ratio*/ 
   ret = L_ImgKrnSignalToNoiseRatio(&bitmap, &snr); 
   return ret;
