there is a part in my program for loading pictures(bmp and jpeg). Sometimes pictures are with resolution of 100DPI and they are just ok for showing in my program. But sometimes they are with diferent resolutions. For example 75DPI or even 300DPI. i want to resize them and to show them in my program as they are with 100DPI (program's default resolution). Does anyone knows how can i do that?

thanks in advance.

Well I can sugest three way.

1)draw them using canvas.stretchDraw instead of canvas.draw. This prob. won't look so good if you're reducing iages with text/lines in them

2)Write your own strechDraw routine.  This is a fair bit of work and should prob. be used only as a last resort

3)Use the TJPEG object. Assign your bit map to a jpeg, resize then assign back again.  This method is also usefull for converting images to greyscale.  It may seem like overkill, but there's a lot of good gfx code wrapped up in the jpeg spec/implementation
