Hi all, I've a problem with ippiMalloc_16u_C1. When I try to allocate memory for an image (16bit depth, 1 channel PNG format) it return a stride = width * 16 / 8 + 10 and not = width *16/8 Why??

Hi,

ippiMalloc_* allocate a block of memory with each line aligned on a 32 bytes boundary.

So I guess that width*16/8 + 10 is a multiple of 32 in your case. That is width = 11 + x * 32 if I'm not mistaken.

ippiMalloc not only aligns the x but also the y axis. If this is a problem for you, of course you can use ippsMalloc or _aligned_malloc from CRT. Then your stride is width*16/8 and you can use this stride also as a parameter to some ippi* functions. Many ippi* functions like color conversion, add, subtract ... will work without 32byte aligned lines.
