ImageAttributes Class

An ImageAttributes object contains information about how bitmap and metafile colors are manipulated during rendering. An ImageAttributes object maintains several color-adjustment settings, including color-adjustment matrices, grayscale-adjustment matrices, gamma-correction values, color-map tables, and color-threshold values.

During rendering colors can be corrected, darkened, lightened, removed, and so on. To apply such manipulations, initialize an ImageAttributes object and pass the address of that ImageAttributes object (along with the address of an Image object) to the DrawImage method.

For a list of all members of this type, see ImageAttributes Members.
