    DC to Tiff

    Hi, I'm creating a function to convert a dc to a tiff image.
    I have found libtiff, but i can't make it compile, i get an unresolved external...
    Code:
    Linking...
    ErrHand.obj : warning LNK4075: ignoring '/EDITANDCONTINUE' due to '/INCREMENTAL:NO' specification
    Reports.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__TIFFClose referenced in function "int __cdecl prtTiff(char *,struct HDC__ *)" (?prtTiff@@YAHPADPAUHDC__@@@Z)
    Reports.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__TIFFWriteScanline referenced in function "int __cdecl prtTiff(char *,struct HDC__ *)" (?prtTiff@@YAHPADPAUHDC__@@@Z)
    Reports.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__TIFFSetField referenced in function "int __cdecl prtTiff(char *,struct HDC__ *)" (?prtTiff@@YAHPADPAUHDC__@@@Z)
    Reports.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__TIFFOpen referenced in function "int __cdecl prtTiff(char *,struct HDC__ *)" (?prtTiff@@YAHPADPAUHDC__@@@Z)
    Also, i can't seem to get the dc converted to a bitmap to send to tibtiff, i'm using createdibsection() for this, but the bitmap returned is 0x0 pixels.

    Is prtTiff() something you've written, or is it part of the libtiff API ?

    It looks to me like you've told the compiler where the .h file is, but you haven't told the linker about the .lib file.
    Project->settings->Linker->Additional libraries kind of thing

    As for the dc thing, post code.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Got rid og the unresolved externals by copying in other versions of libtiff..
    The problem now, is that the dibsection looks like it's memset to 0.. it contains only zeros..
    Here's the code for the prttiff function:
    Code:
    int prtTiff(char *achFile, HDC dc){
    	DIBSECTION *hDib=0;
      int res(0);
    	TIFF *tif;
    	HBITMAP hBmp;
    	BITMAPINFO *bmi;
    
    	//////////
      UINT ilc = (GetDeviceCaps(dc,NUMCOLORS) & 0xFE);
      if ((ilc >= ILC_COLOR4 && ilc <= ILC_COLOR32) || ilc == ILC_COLOR){
    		VOID *bits;
    		if(GetDeviceCaps(dc,BITSPIXEL) <= ILC_COLOR8){
    	    LPPALETTEENTRY pal;
    	    ULONG i, colors;
    	    BYTE temp;
    	    colors = 1 << GetDeviceCaps(dc,BITSPIXEL);
    	    bmi = (BITMAPINFO*)malloc(sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER)+sizeof(PALETTEENTRY)*colors);
    	    pal = (LPPALETTEENTRY)bmi->bmiColors;
    	    GetPaletteEntries((HPALETTE)GetStockObject(DEFAULT_PALETTE), 0, colors, pal);
    	    /* Swap colors returned by GetPaletteEntries so we can use them for
    	     * CreateDIBSection call. */
    	    for (i = 0; i < colors; i++){
            temp = pal[i].peBlue;
            bmi->bmiColors[i].rgbRed = pal[i].peRed;
            bmi->bmiColors[i].rgbBlue = temp;
    	    }
    		}else{
    				bmi = (BITMAPINFO*)malloc(sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER));
    		}
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER);
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biWidth = GetDeviceCaps(dc,HORZRES);
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biHeight = GetDeviceCaps(dc,VERTRES);
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biPlanes = 1;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biBitCount = GetDeviceCaps(dc,BITSPIXEL);
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biCompression = BI_RGB;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biSizeImage = 0;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biXPelsPerMeter = 0;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biYPelsPerMeter = 0;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biClrUsed = 0;
    		bmi->bmiHeader.biClrImportant = 0;
    		hBmp = CreateDIBSection(dc, bmi, DIB_RGB_COLORS, (void**)&hDib, 0, 0);
    		free(bmi);
    	}
    	//////////
    	// get the image information from the provided DIB
    	UINT32 w = hDib->dsBm.bmWidth;
    	UINT32 h = hDib->dsBm.bmHeight;

    	UINT32 bitcount = (UINT32)hDib->dsBm.bmBits;
