Example text

These structures are inserted into three linked lists sorted by the Red, Green, and Blue component values. Next the recursive SplitAreaInHalf function repeatedly divides the RGB colorspace into two areas that contain half of the weighted color values of the original. At this point we have defined the 256 color areas for the image. The CreateColor function defines a single color that is the average for a box. This gives the "best" colors to use for the image. Finally, QuantizeSourceImage makes a second pass over the image data to replace the colors in the source image with a color from among the 256 colors that were defined in the preceding passes.

The AC and DC Huffman table identifiers must match those of Huffman tables defined in a previous DHT marker. The JPEG standard allows 1 to 4 components in a scan, but there are some other restrictions on the number. JFIF limits an image to 3 components. In progressive scans there can be only 1 component if the spectral selection start is not zero. The JPEG standard also places a rather low arbitrary limit of 10 on the number of data units that can be in an MCU, which can limit the number of components in a scan.

The BitmapImage class defines the values RedOffset, GreenOffset, and BlueOffset used by the programming examples to specify the ordering of these bytes. If your system does not use BGR ordering, you can change the values of these offsets. Another Windows'ism that the subscript operator conceals is Windows images will be stored starting with the bottommost row. In order to make displaying an image as easy as possible on Windows, this implementation of the BitmapImage class stores the rows in bottom-to-top order, as Windows expects them to be.
