If you have a DIB file, you can load the DIB file and using GetInfoHeader() function to get the header information which including the color of pixels.

LoadImage will read in a bitmap file from either a resource or from an external file.

Create a CompatibleDC and select your bitmap into it.  Then you can use GetPixel to get teh RGB colour at any location.

GetInfoHeader will/may give you the pallete of colours used, but not the colour of a given pixel.

You can also use GetDIBits() to get the colors of ALL the pixels into an array all at one time.
