In last three articles  we have dicussed about how to load an image in our windows form, how to resize that image and how to crop an image see this:

Part1: Open an image

Part2: Resizing image

Part3: Cropping image

Now next article of this series describes how to set the brightness of an image.

For this we can use concept of colormatrix class of system.Drawing namespace.ColorMattrix defines a 5 x 5 matrix that contains the coordinates for the RGBAW space.
 

You can go msdn for understanding concept of color matrix

First design brightness tab like this layout

For load an image in tool see this

how to Open an image

code:

Write code on the trackbar_scroll event

Dim value As Double = TrackBarBrightness.Value * 0.01F

DomainUpDownBrightness.Text = value 

   

This line set the brightness value of image in domainUpDown control withrange -100 to 100.

And below we demine single type array in 5 x 5 matrix

       

        Dim colorMatrixElements As Single()() = { _

          New Single() {1, 0, 0, 0, 0}, _

          New Single() {0, 1, 0, 0, 0}, _

          New Single() {0, 0, 1, 0, 0}, _

          New Single() {0, 0, 0, 1, 0}, _

          New Single() {value, value, value, 0, 1}}

 

Define colormatrix

 

        Dim colorMatrix As New Imaging.ColorMatrix(colorMatrixElements)

 

  An ImageAttributes object maintains color and grayscale settings for five adjustment categories: default, bitmap, brush, pen, and text. For example, you can specify a color-adjustment matrix for the default category, a different color-adjustment matrix for the bitmap category, and still a different color-adjustment matrix for the pen category.

 

        Dim imageAttributes As New ImageAttributes()

 

        imageAttributes.SetColorMatrix(colorMatrix, ColorMatrixFlag.Default, ColorAdjustType.Bitmap)

 

        Dim _img As Image = Img 'PictureBox1.Image

        Dim _g As Graphics

        Dim bm_dest As New Bitmap(CInt(_img.Width), CInt(_img.Height))

        _g = Graphics.FromImage(bm_dest)

 

 

        _g.DrawImage(_img, New Rectangle(0, 0, bm_dest.Width + 1, bm_dest.Height + 1), 0, 0, bm_dest.Width + 1, bm_dest.Height + 1, GraphicsUnit.Pixel, imageAttributes)

        PictureBox1.Image = bm_dest

you can get brightness setting by above code
