Q.  Is that pixel dark or light?

A.  Convert the pixel to the YIQ colorspace.
Then large values are light and small are dark.

int toYiq(int r, int g, int b) { return ((r*299)+(g*587)+(b*114))/1000; } void example() { int p = bm.getPixel(x, y); int yiq = toYiq(Color.red(p), Color.green(p), Color.blue(p)); if (yiq >= 128) { // It is light } else { // It is dark } }
