  • Thank you for the answer.I tryed unsucessfully this way.The fact is that the Bitmap.SetPixel and Bitmap.GetPixel don't work correctly with other format except the Bitmap format.

    here the code:

                        file = openFileDialog1.FileName;
                        System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(file);
                        image.Save("test.bmp", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
                        image2 =new Bitmap("test.bmp");
                        pictureBox2.Image = image2;

    infact the image.SetPixel(X,Y,color) give impredicable results.
