The Overlay Image is the image that will be layered over the source image. The Overlay Image allows for combining two images.

How the overlay image is merged can be effected by:

  • transparent index, array or color information,
  • setting the tolerance level for color matching,
  • applying alpha channel information,
  • working with separate red, green, blue and alpha color channels,
  • support for pixel level AND and OR byte operations,
  • specifying overall opacity of the merged image data,
  • and setting the P:DTI.ImageMan.Commands.MergeCommand.xOffset and P:DTI.ImageMan.Commands.MergeCommand.yOffset offset for the overlay image.


Target Platforms: Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
