ColorDecisionListImage

ColorDecisionListImage() accepts a lightweight Color Correction Collection (CCC) file which solely contains one or more color corrections and applies the correction to the image. Here is a sample CCC file:

    <ColorCorrectionCollection xmlns="urn:ASC:CDL:v1.2">
    <ColorCorrection id="cc03345">
          <SOPNode>
               <Slope> 0.9 1.2 0.5 </Slope>
               <Offset> 0.4 -0.5 0.6 </Offset>
               <Power> 1.0 0.8 1.5 </Power>
          </SOPNode>
          <SATNode>
               <Saturation> 0.85 </Saturation>
          </SATNode>
    </ColorCorrection>
    </ColorCorrectionCollection>

which includes the slop, offset, and power for each of the RGB channels as well as the saturation.

MagickBooleanType ColorDecisionListImage(Image *image,
  const char *color_correction_collection)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
color_correction_collection
the color correction collection in XML.

ClutImage

ClutImage() replaces each color value in the given image, by using it as an index to lookup a replacement color value in a Color Look UP Table in the form of an image. The values are extracted along a diagonal of the CLUT image so either a horizontal or vertial gradient image can be used.

Typically this is used to either re-color a gray-scale image according to a color gradient in the CLUT image, or to perform a freeform histogram (level) adjustment according to the (typically gray-scale) gradient in the CLUT image.

When the 'channel' mask includes the matte/alpha transparency channel but one image has no such channel it is assumed that that image is a simple gray-scale image that will effect the alpha channel values, either for gray-scale coloring (with transparent or semi-transparent colors), or a histogram adjustment of existing alpha channel values. If both images have matte channels, direct and normal indexing is applied, which is rarely used.

The format of the ClutImage method is:

MagickBooleanType ClutImage(Image *image,Image *clut_image)
MagickBooleanType ClutImageChannel(Image *image,
  const ChannelType channel,Image *clut_image)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image, which is replaced by indexed CLUT values

channel
the channel.

ContrastImage

ContrastImage() enhances the intensity differences between the lighter and darker elements of the image. Set sharpen to a MagickTrue to increase the image contrast otherwise the contrast is reduced.

The format of the ContrastImage method is:

MagickBooleanType ContrastImage(Image *image,
  const MagickBooleanType sharpen)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
sharpen
Increase or decrease image contrast.

ContrastStretchImage

ContrastStretchImage() is a simple image enhancement technique that attempts to improve the contrast in an image by `stretching' the range of intensity values it contains to span a desired range of values. It differs from the more sophisticated histogram equalization in that it can only apply a linear scaling function to the image pixel values. As a result the `enhancement' is less harsh.

The format of the ContrastStretchImage method is:

MagickBooleanType ContrastStretchImage(Image *image,
  const char *levels)
MagickBooleanType ContrastStretchImageChannel(Image *image,
  const size_t channel,const double black_point,
  const double white_point)

A description of each parameter follows:

  const ChannelType channel)

A description of each parameter follows:

GammaImage

GammaImage() gamma-corrects a particular image channel. The same image viewed on different devices will have perceptual differences in the way the image's intensities are represented on the screen. Specify individual gamma levels for the red, green, and blue channels, or adjust all three with the gamma parameter. Values typically range from 0.8 to 2.3.

You can also reduce the influence of a particular channel with a gamma value of 0.

MagickBooleanType GammaImageChannel(Image *image,
  const ChannelType channel,const double gamma)

image
the image.
channel
the channel.

HaldClutImage

HaldClutImage() applies a Hald color lookup table to the image. A Hald color lookup table is a 3-dimensional color cube mapped to 2 dimensions. Create it with the HALD coder. You can apply any color transformation to the Hald image and then use this method to apply the transform to the image.

hald_image
the color lookup table image for replacement color values.
channel
the channel.

LevelImage

LevelImage() adjusts the levels of a particular image channel by scaling the colors falling between specified white and black points to the full available quantum range.

The parameters provided represent the black, and white points. The black point specifies the darkest color in the image. Colors darker than the black point are set to zero. White point specifies the lightest color in the image. Colors brighter than the white point are set to the maximum quantum value.

If a '!' flag is given, map black and white colors to the given levels rather than mapping those levels to black and white. See LevelizeImageChannel() and LevelizeImageChannel(), below.

Gamma specifies a gamma correction to apply to the image.

The format of the LevelImage method is:

MagickBooleanType LevelImage(Image *image,const char *levels)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
levels
Specify the levels where the black and white points have the range of 0-QuantumRange, and gamma has the range 0-10 (e.g. 10x90+2). A '!' flag inverts the re-mapping.

LevelImage

LevelImage() applies the normal level operation to the image, spreading out the values between the black and white points over the entire range of values. Gamma correction is also applied after the values has been mapped.

It is typically used to improve image contrast, or to provide a controlled linear threshold for the image. If the black and white points are set to the minimum and maximum values found in the image, the image can be normalized. or by swapping black and white values, negate the image.

The format of the LevelImage method is:

MagickBooleanType LevelImage(Image *image,const double black_point,
  const double white_point,const double gamma)
MagickBooleanType LevelImageChannel(Image *image,
  const ChannelType channel,const double black_point,
  const double white_point,const double gamma)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
channel
the channel.
black_point
The level which is to be mapped to zero (black)
white_point
The level which is to be mapped to QuantumRange (white)
gamma
adjust gamma by this factor before mapping values. use 1.0 for purely linear stretching of image color values

LevelizeImageChannel

LevelizeImageChannel() applies the reversed LevelImage() operation to just the specific channels specified. It compresses the full range of color values, so that they lie between the given black and white points. Gamma is applied before the values are mapped.

LevelizeImageChannel() can be called with by using a +level command line API option, or using a '!' on a -level or LevelImage() geometry string.

It can be used for example de-contrast a greyscale image to the exact levels specified. Or by using specific levels for each channel of an image you can convert a gray-scale image to any linear color gradient, according to those levels.

The format of the LevelizeImageChannel method is:

MagickBooleanType LevelizeImageChannel(Image *image,
  const ChannelType channel,const char *levels)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
channel
the channel.
black_point
The level to map zero (black) to.
white_point
The level to map QuantumRange (white) to.
gamma
adjust gamma by this factor before mapping values.

LevelImageColor

LevelImageColor() maps the given color to "black" and "white" values, linearly spreading out the colors, and level values on a channel by channel bases, as per LevelImage(). The given colors allows you to specify different level ranges for each of the color channels separately.

If the boolean 'invert' is set true the image values will modifyed in the reverse direction. That is any existing "black" and "white" colors in the image will become the color values given, with all other values compressed appropriatally. This effectivally maps a greyscale gradient into the given color gradient.

The format of the LevelColorsImageChannel method is:

    MagickBooleanType LevelColorsImage(Image *image,
const MagickPixelPacket *black_color,
const MagickPixelPacket *white_color,const MagickBooleanType invert)
    MagickBooleanType LevelColorsImageChannel(Image *image,

  const double black_point,const double white_point)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
black_point
the black point.
white_point

ModulateImage

ModulateImage() lets you control the brightness, saturation, and hue of an image. Modulate represents the brightness, saturation, and hue as one parameter (e.g. 90,150,100). If the image colorspace is HSL, the modulation is lightness, saturation, and hue. For HWB, use blackness, whiteness, and hue. And for HCL, use chrome, luma, and hue.

MagickBooleanType ModulateImage(Image *image,const char *modulate)

A description of each parameter follows:

image
the image.
modulate
Define the percent change in brightness, saturation, and hue.

NegateImage

NegateImage() negates the colors in the reference image. The grayscale option means that only grayscale values within the image are negated.

image
the image.
channel

grayscale
If MagickTrue, only negate grayscale pixels within the image.

The NormalizeImage

  const ChannelType channel)

A description of each parameter follows:

image

channel
the channel.

SigmoidalContrastImage

SigmoidalContrastImage() adjusts the contrast of an image with a non-linear sigmoidal contrast algorithm. Increase the contrast of the image using a sigmoidal transfer function without saturating highlights or shadows. Contrast indicates how much to increase the contrast (0 is none; 3 is typical; 20 is pushing it); mid-point indicates where midtones fall in the resultant image (0 is white; 50 is middle-gray; 100 is black). Set sharpen to MagickTrue to increase the image contrast otherwise the contrast is reduced.

The format of the SigmoidalContrastImage method is:

MagickBooleanType SigmoidalContrastImage(Image *image,
  const MagickBooleanType sharpen,const char *levels)
