Remarks

The merge filter takes two images (source and overlay images) of the same size and pixel format and produces an image, where each pixel equals to the maximum value of corresponding pixels from provided images.

The filter accepts 8 and 16 bpp grayscale images and 24, 32, 48 and 64 bpp color images for processing.

Sample usage:

// create filter
Merge filter = new Merge( overlayImage );
// apply the filter
Bitmap resultImage = filter.Apply( sourceImage );

Source image:

Overlay image:
