Applies an effect to a bitmap that makes it look like it has been drawn with colored pencils.
L_LTIMGSFX_API L_INT L_ColoredPencilBitmap(pBitmap, uRatio, uDim, uFlags)
Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to apply the effect.
Value that represents how much the bitmap colors should be adjusted so they appear to be colored pencil colors. Valid values range from 0 to 100. A value of 0 means that the bitmap will not have any change in pixel values, whereas a value of 100 means that the maximum possible amount will be added to the pixel values.
Value that represents the size of the pencil coloring neighborhood. It is the length, in pixels, of one side of a square. Valid values range from 0 to 100. Increasing this value increases the thickness of the edges that are detected.
Reserved for future use. Must be 0.

The following example loads a bitmap and applies the colored pencil effect:
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("ImageProcessingDemo\\NaturalFruits.jpg")), &LeadBitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), 0, ORDER_BGR, NULL, NULL);
/* pencil color the bitmap with Ratio value of 50 and with a neighborhood of 3x3 pixels*/
nRet = L_ColoredPencilBitmap(&LeadBitmap, 50, 3, 0);
nRet = L_SaveBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("Result.BMP")), &LeadBitmap, FILE_BMP, 24, 0, NULL);
