Method Description
IWICColorTransform::Initialize Initializes an IWICColorTransform with a IWICBitmapSource and transforms it from one IWICColorContext to another.


A IWICColorTransform is an imaging pipeline component that knows how to pull pixels obtained from a given IWICBitmapSource through a color transform. The color transform is defined by mapping colors from the source color context to the destination color context in a given output pixel format.

Once initialized, a color transform cannot be reinitialized. Because of this, a color transform cannot be used with multiple sources or varying parameters.
