OrderedDithererBayer8x8 Property

Gets an OrderedDitherer using the standard Bayer 8x8 matrix.


Namespace: KGySoft.Drawing.Imaging
Assembly: KGySoft.Drawing.Core (in KGySoft.Drawing.Core.dll) Version: 7.0.0
public static OrderedDitherer Bayer8x8 { get; }

Property Value



The following example demonstrates how to use the ditherer returned by this property:
public static IReadWriteBitmapData ToDitheredBayer8x8(IReadWriteBitmapData source, IQuantizer quantizer)
    IDitherer ditherer = OrderedDitherer.Bayer8x8;

    // a.) this solution returns a new bitmap data and does not change the original one:
    return source.Clone(quantizer.PixelFormatHint, quantizer, ditherer);

    // b.) alternatively, you can perform the dithering directly on the source bitmap data:
    source.Dither(quantizer, ditherer);
    return source;

The example above may produce the following results:
