Windows.Graphics.Imaging Windows.Graphics.Imaging Windows.Graphics.Imaging Windows.Graphics.Imaging Namespace

Enables the decoding, editing, and encoding of image files.


Represents the pixel data buffer of a bitmap.

Provides access to information about a decoder or encoder.

Provides read access to bitmap container data as well as data from the first frame.

Contains methods to create, edit and save images.

Provides read access to data within a single frame.

Provides read and write access to image properties and metadata.

Provides read access to image properties and metadata. A particular instance of BitmapPropertiesView may represent the entire contents of the frame metadata, or any nested metadata block within the frame.

Represents a property set of BitmapTypedValue objects.

Contains transformations that can be applied to pixel data.

A value along with an enumeration specifying its data type.

An implementation of IRandomAccessStreamWithContentType type used in the Imaging namespace.

Provides access to the pixel data from a bitmap frame.

Represents an uncompressed bitmap.


Specifies a bounding rectangle.

Defines the format of a bitmap plane.

Represents the size of a bitmap, in pixels.


Exposes methods for operating on a single frame of an image.

Exposes methods for obtaining a SoftwareBitmap representation of an BitmapFrame.

Exposes methods for reading image metadata and properties.


Specifies the alpha mode of pixel data.

Specifies the access mode of a BitmapBuffer.

Specifies the flip operation to be performed on pixel data.

Specifies the interpolation mode used for scaling pixel data.

Specifies the pixel format of pixel data. Each enumeration value defines a channel ordering, bit depth, and data type.

Specifies the rotation operation to be performed on pixel data.

Specifies the color management behavior when obtaining pixel data.

Specifies the EXIF orientation flag behavior when obtaining pixel data.

Specifies which chroma subsampling mode will be used for image compression in JPEG images.

Specifies the filter used to optimize the image prior to image compression in PNG images.

Specifies the compression mode used for TIFF images.
