do you mean that you want to embed you own code in vb to do this?  That's a REALLY bad idea.  Just find a 3rd party tool that will do the job and create a "shell" command to do it.

You can use IPicture interface and its function SaveAsFile() to convert the file.

GOOD LUCK

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi

You can use imgedit control to do so

Load a picture to ImgEdit control

i.e.

ImgEdit1.FitTo 0
ImgEdit1.Image = "c:\abc.bmp"

then use this to convert it to jpg
ImagEdit1.SaveAs Destination[,FileType,PageType,CompressionType,CompressionInfo,SaveAtZoom]


all these types u can get from the Kodak Imagedit controls help file

regards
Kashif
