Compare Paint's Rotated Image with GDI's rotated image

Recommended Posts


Hi all, 

I have an image and rotate it with both MS Paint and GDI. I want to show that the rotated image from both methods are the same. 

Here is the code I have to rotate image with GDI

#include <GDIPlus.au3>


$hImage1 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\Picture.gif")
$hGraphic1 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hImage1)
$hImage2 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics(_GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage1), _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage1), $hGraphic1)
$hGraphic2 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hImage2)

$matrix = _GDIPlus_MatrixCreate()
_GDIPlus_GraphicsSetTransform($hGraphic2, $matrix)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic2, $hImage1, 0, -590)

_GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile($hImage2, @ScriptDir & "\out.gif")


 _GDIPlus_ShutDown ()

Then I used this code to compare 2 images:

#include <GDIPlus.au3>


$bm1 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\Picture1.gif")
$bm2 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\out.gif")

if ComparePicture($bm1, $bm2) == True Then
   MsgBox(0, "Test result", "Same image!")
   MsgBox(0, "Test result", "Different image!")


Func ComparePicture($bm1, $bm2)

    $Bm1W = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($bm1)
    $Bm1H = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($bm1)
    $BitmapData1 = _GDIPlus_BitmapLockBits($bm1, 0, 0, $Bm1W, $Bm1H, $GDIP_ILMREAD, $GDIP_PXF08INDEXED )
    $Stride = DllStructGetData($BitmapData1, "Stride")
    $Scan0 = DllStructGetData($BitmapData1, "Scan0")

    $ptr1 = $Scan0
    $size1 = ($Bm1H - 1) * $Stride + ($Bm1W - 1) * 4

    $Bm2W = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($bm2)
    $Bm2H = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($bm2)
    $BitmapData2 = _GDIPlus_BitmapLockBits($bm2, 0, 0, $Bm2W, $Bm2H, $GDIP_ILMREAD, $GDIP_PXF08INDEXED)
    $Stride = DllStructGetData($BitmapData2, "Stride")
    $Scan0 = DllStructGetData($BitmapData2, "Scan0")

    $ptr2 = $Scan0
    $size2 = ($Bm2H - 1) * $Stride + ($Bm2W - 1) * 4

    $smallest = $size1
    If $size2 < $smallest Then $smallest = $size2
    $call = DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "int:cdecl", "memcmp", "ptr", $ptr1, "ptr", $ptr2, "int", $smallest)

    _GDIPlus_BitmapUnlockBits($bm1, $BitmapData1)
    _GDIPlus_BitmapUnlockBits($bm2, $BitmapData2)

    Return ($call[0]=0)


I tried changing the file type, color depth, etc. but I could not get the code to show that they are the same. When I do not rotate the picture i.e 


then it recognize the same image. When I rotate right 90, it doesn't. Does anyone knows what might be going?

I think $GDIP_PXF08INDEXED is modifying the images differently. Try it without setting it and it should work.

Futher you can use this code to flip the image:

$hImage1 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\Picture1.gif")
_GDIPlus_ImageRotateFlip($hImage1, 1) ;90°

_GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile($hImage1, @ScriptDir & "\out.gif")

It's always polite to post links to where you've asked the question before. There have been many cases in the past where people have spent time on an answer, only to find it's already been answered elsewhere. It's no issue at all reposting on the forum if you don't get help elsewhere, just please link to it :)

@UEZ: Wow, thank you so so much. It works!

@Mat: I'm sorry. I'm new here so I just post both on here and stackoverflow. 

Thank you!

No problem at all, just in future please link between the two. 

Now the stackoverflow question can be closed with UEZ's answer, and everyone is happy :)
