Look at Auto3Lib and it's GDI+ capabilities.


Especially at Rotate.au3 and instead of $GDIP_EPGTRANSFORMATION try to use $GDIP_EPGCOLORDEPTH

Failed attempts on my part with the above unless I just got the pixel information from bmp first, rather than using PixelGetColor() and sending the data raw from that.

I've had this for a while... it's not pretty, but it seems to work... I'd rather see the correct way to do it, but patience + time is not my strong point lately

MsgBox(0, '', _24To16(0xA3D1FF))
Func _24To16($nColor)
    $nColor = String($nColor)
    Local $sHex
    If StringInStr($sHex, '0x') = 0 Then 
        $sHex = Hex($nColor, 6)
        $sHex = StringReplace($nColor, '0x', '')
    If StringLen($sHex) <> 6 Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local $a24Bit[33] = [ "", _

I've totally misread this thread I think (I thought you meant individual pixels)... Zedna has it right... Sorry

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
