Hi,
how do I convert an resized Image to an Image, which normal size is the resized size ?
e.g. my image is 32x32 I resize it to 32x64 (by stretching it) . Now I need to convert the
image so that 32x64 is the normal size (When I load the image with autosize=true and
stretched=false the image must has the size 32x64. I must do that without using the hdd.

I have not test it, but try this:

procedure StretchImage(oldImg,newImg: TImage);
begin
  newImg.width:=32; newImg.height:=64;
  newImg.picture.bitmap.width:=32; newImg.picture.bitmap.height:=64;
  newImg.picture.bitmap.canvas.StretchDraw(Rect(0,0,32,64),oldImg);
end;

Ok, I think that'll work. I'm asking the user for the new bitmap height and width. Now the original
bitmap should be changed to the new size. I'm only using 1 Image component. And I can't use
stretch because it doesn't work with my program (I'm using OnMouseMove, CanvasMoveTo etc.)
and when I stretch it "normal" my rectangle end position doesn't match with mouse position. Perhaps
you could send me a source code ? (StretchDraw wants a TGraphic not an image ???). You can
compare my program with Borland's "Graphex" example program but my program must be able to change
the image size.

Ok, another try:

procedure StretchImage(var img: TImage; newWidth,newHeight: integer);
var bmp : TBitmap;
begin
  bmp:=TBitmap.Create;
  try
    bmp.width:=newWidth; bmp.height:=newHeight;
    bmp.canvas.StretchDraw(Rect(0,0,32,64),img.picture.graphic);
    img.picture.SetBounds(img.left,img.top,newWidth,newHeight);
    img.picture.bitmap.Assign(bmp);
  finally bmp.free end;
end;

Regards... Madshi.
