Saving a Picture in JPEG/GIF Format in VB

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!

The Website provided does not point to the Lead Tools home page !

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.

This software works great at converting graphics from different formats.  Let me know how it works, good luck and Merry Christmas!!!    --Vingamel

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 !
