I have a C# .Net application that is converting a BitMap to a Byte[] but need to determine whether the Bitamp is inverted, if so then I need to invert is back.

Can anyone help me with some code examples of both determining whether an image is inverted and invert it back?

>>but need to determine whether the Bitmap is inverted......determining whether an image is inverted

If you do not know somehow (eg. pixel 0,0 is always white in the original so you can test that one pixel in your image) then I would say you are not going to be able to do this task.

Can't be done. As had been said you don't know what state the image is in ie inverted or normal

Hi csalerno,

where does the bitmap come from? If you load it from a file it may be (i.e. if its a TIFF file) the bitmap has a palette which may indicate black-on-white or white-on-black with the order of the colors in the table.

Beside this I have to agree with the previous comments. The only additional thing which comes in my mind is you could simply count the white and black pixels, if you i.e. have more black than white pixels you can treat it as inverse allthough of course you can't be sure it really is.
