You're right that I'm wrong. That's quite embarrasing. I've done this the right way before as well (not that I've had the time to work on that since last Nov). You're forgetting operator precedence though, you're going to get (y*pitch)+(x*bytesPerPixel).
So if I'm thinking properly I'd probably put ((y*pitch)+x)*BytesPerPixel and ((y*pitch)+(width-1))*BytesPerPixel.
Yes, I use a lot of brackets. I've seen more than one buggy compiler 'optimise' the operator precedence putting + before * and so on. Call me Mr. Paranoid if you like :o)
With our powers combined we could be an unstoppable force, we could even be... competent! Oh dear, I'll go back to bed shall I?
