     If you want to adjust the brightness of a picture, rotate a picture with ANTI-ALIASING or AlphaBlend pictures together, maybe using an invisible mask color, and all that in vb and in just milliseconds... then you need this code! I wrote all the calculations in a C++ DLL, because it is much faster and easier to use, you just need a few lines of code to make incredible effects! in the zip-file there is the DLL and a VB-Demo to demonstrate the possibilities and the performance of my dll.

NOTE: Version 3.0 is released, go to

UPDATED! 2.0: The new package now also includes a VB-Only-Version with the functions from the dll rewritten for VB, so you can use the stuff without the dll! (though the dll is faster than the still fast VB-code, so i would use the dll). I also included a BUMP MAPPING routine a BLUR filter and an IMPROVED ALPHA BLENDING routine.

UPDATED! 2.1: Fixed a problem with 16 bit color depth. included MOSAIC filter.

UPDATED! 2.2: Added some nice, useful timer- and counter-functions. See demo for description. I Also added a complete DOCUMENTATION of all functions with descriptions of all parameters to help you using my code (see "readme.txt").

Test it and *please* vote for this really useful and good piece of code!

NOTE: Version 3.0 is released, go to

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
