GetPixel Method

Returns the color of the specified pixel.
public RasterColor GetPixel( 
   int row, 
   int column 
- (LTRasterColor *)getPixelAtRow:(NSInteger)row  
public RasterColor getPixel( 
   int row, 
   int column 
public void setPixelColor( 
   int intValue, 
   int intValue2, 
   RasterColor rasterColor 
RasterColor GetPixel(  
   int row, 
   int column 
def GetPixel(self,row,column): 


The zero-based row number of the pixel.

The zero-based column number of the pixel.

Return Value

This method returns a RasterColor value which may represent an index into an image palette, a grayscale value (Medical Imaging only), or red, green, and blue color values. Alpha value for 32 and 64-bit images are also returned.


The standard Windows values for RasterColor represent either red, green, and blue color values, or an index into the image palette. A RasterColor value with the RGB value of 0x00BBGGRR represents the blue, green, and red color values for the specified pixel, where 0xBB is the blue value, 0xGG is the green value and 0xRR is the red value. If 0x01000000 is set in the RGB value of RasterColor (0x010000ZZ), the lower 8 bits (0xZZ) represent an index into the image palette which holds the color value.

For 32 and 64-bit images, an alpha value is also available in the image. This method will return the alpha value in the returned RasterColor object A property. For 32-bit images, this will be the exact byte value of the alpha for the pixel. For 64-bit images, the alpha is 16-bit and since RasterColor.A is an 8-bit value, the returned alpha is normalized from its 16-bit value to 8-bit. For other bits/pixel values, the value returned from this method is identical to the value returned from GetPixelColor.

You can use the SetPixel method to assign the returned value to another pixel.

This method uses image coordinates to specify the pixel. Therefore, you must account for the view perspective of the image.

If you specify a pixel that is outside the image or outside the region (if the image has one), this method throws an exception.

This method supports signed/unsigned data images.

The GetPixel function can use the Extended Grayscale mask. For more information, refer to Grayscale Images

This example uses will load an image as 32-bit, use GetPixel and SetPixel to set the alpha value for each pixel to 128 (half transparent) and save the result as PNG.
