1) Use GetDIBits to convert it to a DIB and then read the pixels
2) Select into a memory DC, and then use GetPixel to read

You can create a memory DC, select your bitmap to it and than use functions GetPixel() and SetPixel(). But if you interested in speed than you will be disappointed :( This approach is easy to do but quite slow.

HDC hdc = CreateCompatibleDC(NULL);
SelectObject(hdc, hBitmpa);
COLORREF cr = GetPixel(hdc, 10, 10);

this code will give you RGB value of pixel (10, 10) in your bitmap.

Than you have to go for GetDIBits() approach, you will get pointer to bitmap data itself. Than you have to analize which type of bitmap (actually DIB) are you diling with, colors, size and .... Than you can use direct pointers.

Take a look at
