Corrects the view perspective.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LBitmap::ManualPerspectiveDeskew(InPoints, ppOutBitmap)



Pointer to Manual3DDeskewPoints structure that contains a list of points to be transformed to match the location of the mapped points list.


Pointer of pointer to bitmap handle that contains the deskewed image.


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


Typically, this function is used as a step in preprocessing images from digital cameras.

It changes the image based on a perspective view equation. It takes the depth of the objects into account as well as their relative dimensions.

This function can change the specified image. To keep the original image unchanged, use this function on a copy.

It is best to choose input points that are far away from each other.

Use this function or LBitmap::PerspectiveDeskew if there is deformation along all three axes. Use the LBitmap::Deskew if there is deformation along the x- and y- axes.

This function can only process entire images. It does not support regions.

This function supports 24 and 36-bit color images and 8 and 16-bit grayscale images.

This function supports signed/unsigned images.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.
