well you do that by creating regions actually :)
look into calls like CreateRegion

thereare some examples on icz' site as well as this forum, I think f0dder can tell you a faster way to'GetPixel' by using the dib directly. I have recently sent someone a lot of attachments related to this, so if you want I can look them up again and send them to your e-mail?
