L_LTIMGSFX_API L_INT L_IntelligentUpScaleBitmap(pBitmap, pMaskBitmap, crRemoveObjectColor, crPreserveObjectColor, nNewWidth, nWidthUpScalingFactor, nNewHeight, nHeightUpScalingFactor, nUpScalingOrder, uFlags)

Increases the size of the image while preserving important features automatically. Also, it preserves selected objects without affecting the natural look of the image.

This feature is available in version 16 or higher.

Parameters

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

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

pBITMAPHANDLE pMaskBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the mask bitmap. The mask bitmap is the same as the original bitmap but with a color mask on certain areas that need to be preserved during the upscaling operation. Pass NULL if there is no mask bitmap. Pass a bitmap the same size as pBitmap to prevent the function returning ERROR_INV_PARAMETER.

COLORREF crRemoveObjectColor

COLORREF value that specifies the color of the area in the mask bitmap to be removed. It is best to use a color different than colors in the image. Pass INTELLIGENTRESCALE_NOREMOVECOLOR if you do not want to pass any color value.

COLORREF crPreserveObjectColor

COLORREF value that specifies the color of the area in the mask bitmap to be preserved. It is best to use a different color than the color specified in crRemoveObjectColor or the original color used in the image in pBitmap. Pass INTELLIGENTRESCALE_NOREMOVECOLOR if you do not want to pass any color value.

L_INT nNewWidth

New width in pixels. Possible values are range from (width of the image +1) to (2* width of the image) -1.

L_INT nWidthUpScalingFactor

Divides the Width up scaling process into stages until the new width is achieved. This gives better results in some cases. Possible values are:

If mask bitmap is used:
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_NOUPSCALINGFACTOR

Otherwise:
1
.
.
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_DEFAULTUPSCALINGFACTOR
.
.
20

L_INT nNewHeight

New height in pixel. Possible values are range from (height of the image +1) to (2* height of the image) -1.

L_INT nHeightUpScalingFactor

Divide the Height up scaling process into stages until the new height is achieved. This gives better results in some cases. Possible values are:

If mask bitmap is used:
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_NOUPSCALINGFACTOR

Otherwise:
1
.
.
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_DEFAULTUPSCALINGFACTOR
.
.
20

L_INT nUpScalingOrder

Upscaling behavior. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_VERTHORZ Upscale the image width first, then the height.
INTELLIGENTRESCALE_HORZVERT Upscale the image height first, then the width.

L_UINT32 uFlags

Reserved for future. Must be zero.

Returns

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

Comments

Intelligent upscaling rescales the areas deemed unimportant in the image.

Upscaling using a mask is done only on the width dimension. To upscale using a mask on the height dimension, rotate the image, upscale on the width dimension, and then rotate again.

There are no upscaling steps when a mask is used. During upscale, a masked "remove area" indicates that an area is not important. Therefore, the upscale effect is concentrated in this area.

The color of the remove area must be different than colors in the pBitmap.

The color of the preserve area must be different than the colors in the pBitmap and different from the remove area color.

If multiple remove objects exist, then all of them must use the same remove color. Same thing applies to the preserve color area.

It is usually most effective to draw the mask over the remove area from the top to the bottom of the image, passing through the remove area. Make the mask wide enough to force the up scaling to concentrate more only in the remove area.

This function does not support 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. If the image is 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color, the function will not return an error.

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 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.
