Saving a Picture in JPEG/GIF Format in VB

Posted on 1998-12-13
Last Modified: 2013-11-19
May I know how to convert Bitmap files to GIF/JPEG during run-time in VB 5?
Perhaps you can recommend some OCXs ,DLLs ....

   Problem Background : I am going to load a picture      
                        from the clipboard into the picture
                        control and save it as a GIF/JPEG
                        file for display on a Web page.
                        (VB only allows me to save in BMP
                        Thanks a Million!

The website suggested by pjmaze in the following email extract does not contain the information I want.

Reply From pjmaze:
   if you go here, and browse you will find several OCX, to read and save several image formats


   see ya

He has also suggested another website which contain non-English materials. I'm afraid I only understand English.
Therefore, I hope all replies are in English. (Please try not to introduce handicapped OCX controls.)
Thanks a Billion !

The image library I use and would highly recommend is LeadTools OCX from Lead technologies.

They do have a web site, but I don't remember the exact URL.  Try www.leadtechnologies.com.

Good luck!

I also use LeadTools here, the only problem is that with LeadTools you need to purchase a LZW license from UNISYS in order to save in GIF format.

I don't know if my suggested solution is feasible or not...why can you not convert the graphics BEFORE run time?  Lemme know, and thanks.  --Vingamel

I am currently writing a Web application which captures still images into bitmaps and I need to convert the pictures at run-time to JPEG files for faster transmission over Net !
