Saving JPEGs with GDI plus

From HashVB
(Redirected from SaveJPG)
Jump to: navigation, search

Uses GDI+ API (Standardly resident only in Windows XP, but available here for other versions of Windows)

This example usage saves Picture1 to "C:\x.jpg" with 50% image quality:

SaveJPG(Picture1, "C:\x.jpg", 50)

Put the following code in a module and call to SaveJPG() in order to save an StdPicture to a JPG.
