I am using a video capture component to grab bitmaps from a live video source.
I need to make these images as small as possible as I am sending them over a direct modem connection to another computer.
I need information on how to achieve the smallest graphic size possible. At the moment I am transmiting the images as compressed JPEG images at around 2.5K each (the original bitmaps are 49K. The image quality is not brilliant but will do(at the moment).
Any information about graphic compression and formats, or any better way of transmiting these graphic files over a modem (I am using a Zmodem protocol at the moment) will be of great help.
