# getvalue from string of binary to compare the value 19
hi, i'm work on image comparison. i'm using the similarity measurement which i need to:
1) convert the image into the binary form since the algorithm that i've use works with binary data for the computation
2) compare the string binary data to get the similarity or dissimilarity result.

The problem is, i already done with the image (jpg) conversion to binary and also try the algorithm structure in C# language, but i having a problem to getvalue from the string of binary to pass with the comparison function where i declare as Bitmap since the comparison took the height and width of the image first. Then the comparison is between each rows of the two image.

example:

Image Binary Values (row operation)
Image1 1 1 1 1
Image2 0 1 0 0

the calculation is to compare the strings of binary from the two image.
p = positive both image ---> [1 1]
q = positive image1 , negative image2 ---> [1 0]
r = negative image1, positive image1 ---> [0 1]
therefore,

results from the image comparison above :
p = 1
q = 3
r = 0

i need to get the result example above so that i can calculate to measure the similarity between image.

i really new to this language and i really appreciate with the help. i'm also attach the code that i already done and sample of interface from my program. thank you.

TIP: When you are writing your question, there is a button on the tool bar that wraps the [code] tags around your copy/pasted code. It helps a bunch. Its the button with a '#' on it. More on tags. They're cool. Check'em out.

Bitmaps don't just create from a string.
You either need a full stream of bytes that describe the bitmap, or you need to create a new bitmap and set every pixel based on the data string

19 thanks Plater but i really need help more elaboration about your suggestion, could you explain more? i'm sorry and i really appreciate it.

Step 1: Open MSDN and actually LOOK at the bitmap object.
Step 2: Step one should cover it

EDIT: Ok, that's not really fair of me I suppose.

The bitmap object can be created from a stream. If you have a byte[], you can turn it into a stream with the MemoryStream, which can be accepted by the Bitmap object.

Otherwise, you create a bitmap of the correct size and then cycle through your data, decide what pixel the data is for, pick the color and the set the pixel in the bitmap.

19 hi Plater, thanks for the feedback.already search and do what you have been suggest for. i also have try another code. i manage to get value from the string of binary and run through the algorithm. but another problem occur where once the result appear, suppose i got the to total answer is 64 but the result shows 32.

--> i have done the tracing to check where the error occur, the looping where comparison function produce incorrect result. the comparison of first row is correct but when it loop, the next row produce wrong result and so on.

--> i really need help since i need to present this testing sooner by tomorrow. could you help me?

--> sorry once again and i really wait for the reply. thank you so much.
--> here i attach the new code.

Well I think going the byte[] route would be a better choice, bitmap data sometimes has padded bytes to each "row", there's a term for it but I forget it.
