Jpeg pictures

In visual basic 5.0 the picturebox control now lets you load
jpeg files into it. After loading a jpeg in the picturebox
the picture looks very bad. All the colors in the picture
are not displayed. Microsoft didnt put much effort into
displaying jpeg's. I know vb5 can process this files and
display them with all there colors intact and quite nicely
might i add. I would like to learn how to do that using vb5.
Is there any vb code on the internet that could help me get
started in image processing? If you know how to do this could you help me?

VB5 Displays well the JPEG files, using your screen configuration.

Is your screen well configured : 16 Millions colors?

You could also find other OCX for Image processing.

I had that problem a couple of month ago.

To correct this, I now use the WebBrowser control which displays jpeg files correctly.

You misunderstand what i would like to do. I know there are controls out there just for this purpose, but i would like to learn how to use vb5 code to do it myself. If i use other peoples controls i will never learn how to do these things. Can you direct me to a web page that will let me download vb5 sample projects on jpeg imaging?

You can't do it in VB. If you want to write an OCX for viewing JPG, or even other images format, you need to do it under VC++

I think your wrong. I think vb can do image processing and when i find out how it's done
i'll let you know. Your idea about changing my screen resolution did work. Now vb5's
picturebox control does a beautiful job at displaying 24 bit jpeg's. Thank-you,but i'd still
like to learn how to do image processing with vb.
