Description

The imgGamma function adjusts the intensity of colors in a bitmap by changing the gamma constant that is used to map the intensity values. Note that a gamma value greater than 1 will in general lead to an intensity increase, while a gamma value less than 1 will cause the intensity to be reduced.

Examples

In this example, we use the imgGamma function to increase the intensity of the input image:

  1. When the input image is active, select Image: Adjustments: Gamma. This opens the dialog of the X-Function.
  2. In the X-Function dialog, change the settings as the screenshot below and click OK to close the dialog.
