_GDIPlus and problem deleting an image

Recommended Posts

Rapidnxit

Hi! I am using a simple function to put a watermark into another image. It works very well, but if then I try to delete the source image file (in the script below it is called $sFile) I have the error that the file is open in my process. Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

Func _Watermark($sFile2, $sFile, $sLogo)
    Local $hImage1, $hImage2, $hGraphic

    _GDIPlus_Startup ()
    $hImage1 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile ($sFile)   ; image
    $X1 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth ($hImage1)
    $Y1 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight ($hImage1)
    $hImage2 = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile ($sLogo)  ; logo
    $X2 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth ($hImage2)
    $Y2 = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight ($hImage2)

    $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext ($hImage1)
    
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage ($hGraphic, $hImage2, $X1-$X2-5, 5)
    _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile ($hImage1, $sFile2)  ; image watermarked

    _GDIPlus_ImageDispose ($hImage1)
    _GDIPlus_ImageDispose ($hImage2)
    _GDIPlus_ShutDown ()
EndFunc   ;==>_Watermark

You need to Release the Graphics object. 

_GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)

      Howdy, I've gone through a lot of au3 forums, and I once had a working Imagesearch script that I got from here.  However, and i'm just totally not sure how but my imagesearch scripts aren't working anymore.
      I'm not new to au3 but i'm not the most experienced with it's syntax/commands.

      Anyways, I've looked over the big threads involving imagesearch.

      Does anyone have a working Imagesearch x64 for win10 that is currently working as of the date with the post.

      Dll's and what not is fine, just when I tell the script to run, I want to be able to find the image on the screen!
      Can't find a working copy so if anyone has one please send it my way lol.

      I've taken all the imagesearch downloads and what not and have played with them but I can't get any of them working on my end, despite others saying they're working.
      Thanks.

      Hi Community,

      I'm looking for a way to do a Video Overlay GUI or something like that. The idea is to create a GUI which plays a video loop (with transparency/alpha channel) in front of an other GUI. Before you asking why - because I don't believe that GDIPlus can do it out of the box. My skillset for that kind of graphical things isn't good enough to do that, but here are some specialist like @UEZ maybe who can help.

      Example alpha channel video (visualized as animated *.gif):

      I tried to do the light rays effect directly with GDIPlus, but honestly that's a bit too difficult for me. I would be very glad and grateful if there are some suggestions, ideas or recommendations.

      Code for the Video play:
       
      Example video "End.mpeg":
       
      The next challenge is that the overlay GUI should be not clickable. If I hover over the overlay area, I want to have the possibility to control the GUI or what ever, in the background. But if there is any chance to make it with GDIPlus as a Video Overlay for light rays, I would prefer that approach instead of my crazy work-around idea.

      Thanks for any suggestion - I'm grateful!

      Hi everyone,
      I am wondering if is there any autoit function that make the program ignore errors and move on and resume correct lines?
      Thank you

      MapIt is a tile world editor.  MapIt was built around the concept of reversing Dragon Warrior map images.  MapIt can take image input and produce a tile and world array.
      MapIt features Unity style dragable labels that adjust property values.

      MapParser is a C++ project that scans images for unique tiles.  MapParser is very fast.  Due to hard drive failure, many bugs were restored b/c I had to rewind many years.  Frustrated with the design, I wrote a new version from the ground up.  This New Version:  AutoIt Front-end, command line controls, and shared with the world; so that I can't lose it again.
      You can toggle the C++ MapParser off to see the difference in speeds between the MapParser CPP verse AutoIt function.  Function is named Scan_Tiles() in AutoIt.  You can also chose to download without MapParser.exe.
      At the moment Scanning a image resets the arrays, but you can add tiles after scanning.
      Images can be added as tiles without scan image at all.  Then configure settings to give your world parameters and manually fill the world data with tile indexes.
      Using the settings you can change tile size after a scan.  Example: you wanted to replace a map with different sized tiles.
      Changing and replacing tile / world data is easy.  B/c tile world editor.

      Hotkeys, I use CTRL+R in image above to signal replace tile action and I use "G" to Get the tile under mouse.
      Hotkeys are not saved to disk and thus are set to default between sessions.
      I might draw the world to pre-rendered surfaces and use them as multi-layer someday.  I do that in my AutoIt, DragonWarrior Remake but I could spend forever unsure what features are important for this.  The DW_Remake has a method of replacing a tile with a tile on two layers.  So you could replace a tree on the first layer with a grass, and a tree in the second layer.  This is all getting very confusing.
      I attempted to write the good code.  If something could be better, please advise.
      Fifth release.  Enjoy.
      For download, videos, and example of created world file data; please visit the MapIt webpage: http://songersoft.com/programming/mapit/mapit_about.phtml
      Special thanks: @AdmiralAlkex, @Melba23, @MrCreatoR
      Main AutoIt source file: Will not run without other Includes and SDL DLLs.
      Last Update: 5/26/2018 3:45 PM EST
      REMOVED CODE BLOCK:  I was informed the this page loaded very slowly, one solution so far has been to remove the 2k lines in the code block.
      When I recieve more feedback from the User I may reduce image size or remove images.
      Next Version Added: $eSETTING_TILE_LAST_PATH I have the weekend, I want to write world layers with aBoard surfaces.

      I had thought that _GDIPlus_ImageClone($hImage) removes all property items, but I now know that it copies property items.
      What is the easiest way of copying an image that has property items to another image that does not have property items?
