Since you are asking in the MFC-TA I suggest to load the bitmap into a CBitmap. Then you can get the RGB values into a buffer using GetBitmapBits:

CBitmap bmp;
HBITMAP hbmp = (HBITMAP) ::LoadImage (AfxGetInstanceHandle (), fileName, IBM_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_LOADFROMFILE);
bmp.Attach (hbmp);

BITMAP bbmp;

bmp.GetObject (sizeof (bbmp), &bbmp);

DWORD nsize = bbmp.bmWidthBytes * bbmp.bmHeight;

BYTE *buf = new BYTE(nsize);
bmp.GetBitmapBits (nsize, buf);

....

delete buf
