Subject: Re: Getting Brigthness from pixels

Hi Marc,

The simplest way to obtain the "brightness" of a pixel is to average out the RGB values of a particular pixel. This is not completely correct as the humain eye is much more sensitive to green compared to red and blue.

For example, if you look at the TConvertToGrayTransform constructor you will see these constants,

FRedFactor := 0.299;
FGreenFactor := 0.587;
FBlueFactor := 0.114;

That when converting a color image to a black an white image, the green factor is much more important. You can use these contants to weight the brightness of a pixel.

A better approach is to convert each RGB value to a hue, saturation, and luminosity values. This is another way of representing colors. This is what is used by the TBrightnessTransform. You'll find the functions RGBToHSL and
HSLToRGB in the EnTransf.Pas unit (EnTransf.hpp header). The code in the TBrightnessTransform::ApplyOnDest method will give a clear example on how to modify the brightness of some pixels (this is in the EnTransf.Pas). Just use the RGB property of the TDibGraphic class to access the pixels you want to change.

Best regards,
