For example, a 640x480 bitmap is loaded into a TImage, how can I save the picture into a new bitmap file of a dimension of 320x240 pixels?  Example code expected.

I can't answer your question but take a look at Earl Glynn's site:

http://www.efg2.com/lab/

He has a large number of examples of manipulating images and links.

Good luck - Walter McKie

hi yingkit,

you can use the stretchdraw-method like

DestBitmap := TBitmap.Create;
DestBitmap.Width := 320;
DestBitmap.Height := 240;
DestBitmap.Canvas.StretchDraw(Rect(0,0,320,240),SourceBitmap);
DestBitmap.SaveToFile('AFileName.bmp');

hi vin
try to use this code

var NewBitmap: TBitmap;
begin
  NewBitmap:=TBitmap.Create;
  NewBitmap.Width:=320;
  NewBitmap.Height:=240;

  StretchBlt(NewBitmap.Canvas.Handle, 0,0,320,240, Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,640,480,SRCCOPY);
  NewBitmap.SaveToFile(FileName);
  NewBitmap.Free;
end;

Hi vov,
Only a 320x240 *blank* bitmap is generated.  Is there something wrong with the code?
