I need some source code or a component that will allow me to run the Photoshop "auto levels" and/or "auto color" adjustments on a bitmap.
If you're not familiar with these commands in Photoshop, they take an image that has bad lighting/colors and does a best attempt at modifying the image to the correct colors.

You could try http://www.torry.net/graphics_eff.htm for starters. While you may not be able to find an "auto" balance, you can provide sliders to allow the user to select the desired effects.

if you have Photoshop, and plan to just use Delphi to interface with your Photoshop, check out this automation page http://www.djpate.freeserve.co.uk/AutoPShp.htm

I already have components for changing the histogram and contrast and all that. But I want the program to do it automatically.

As far as the photoshop automation, that would be great if I could work with a TBitmap, but with that code I'd have to save it to a file, then run actions in Photoshop, then load the file back up again. Plus the customer will have to have photoshop installed. This may be a quick fix in the future if I can't figure it out.

I bought a component called ImageEn a long time ago for a bunch of work, it has some of this functionality, I'm going to continue tweaking with that to see if I can get it to do as I wish.
