Exposes methods that refers to a source from which pixels are retrieved, but cannot be written back to.
The IWICBitmapSource interface has these methods.
|IWICBitmapSource::CopyPalette||Retrieves the color table for indexed pixel formats.|
|IWICBitmapSource::CopyPixels||Instructs the object to produce pixels.|
|IWICBitmapSource::GetPixelFormat||Retrieves the pixel format of the bitmap source..|
|IWICBitmapSource::GetResolution||Retrieves the sampling rate between pixels and physical world measurements.|
|IWICBitmapSource::GetSize||Retrieves the pixel width and height of the bitmap.|
This interface provides a common way of accessing and linking together bitmaps, decoders, format converters, and scalers. Components that implement this interface can be connected together in a graph to pull imaging data through.
This interface defines only the notion of readability or being able to produce pixels. Modifying or writing to a bitmap is considered to be a specialization specific to bitmaps which have storage and is defined in the descendant interface IWICBitmap.
