Save a JPEG returned from EZTWAIN

Trying to save a scanned image as a JPEG file. I acquire the image using EZ TWAIN dll and get back a handle to a DIB. How do I take this handle to the DIB and save it to a JPEG file using the sample code:

http://www.vbaccelerator.com/codelib/gfx/vbjpeg.htm

I been trying to use the SAVEJPG method of the cDIBSECTION class but can't seem to figure out how to convert the handle to a DIB to a cDIBSECTION object so that I can pass that to the SAVEJPG method.

Also looked at FreeImage:
http://freeimage.sourceforge.net/download.html
All example in C++, couldn't figure them out. Need VB code examples

best I can tell you will need to create a suitable DC, then draw to it, I believe (dont have the structures in front of me)
that the cDIBSection has a DC property, so you should just be able to copy the contents of the db you have a handle to
and then save it.
Declare Function TWAIN_CreateDibPalette Lib "EZTW32.DLL" Alias "TWAIN_CreateDibPalette" _
      ( ByVal hdib as Long ) as Long
'
'  Create and return a logical palette to be used for drawing the DIB.
'  For 1, 4, and 8-bit DIBs the palette contains the DIB color table.
'  For 24-bit DIBs, a default halftone palette is returned.
'
Declare Sub TWAIN_DrawDibToDC Lib "EZTW32.DLL" Alias "TWAIN_DrawDibToDC" _
      ( ByVal hDC as Long, ByVal dx as Long, ByVal dy as Long, _
        ByVal w as Long, ByVal h as Long, ByVal hdib as Long, _
        ByVal sx as Long, ByVal sy as Long )
'
'  Draws a DIB on a device context.
'  You should call CreateDibPalette, select that palette
'  into the DC, and do a RealizePalette(hDC) first.

The 'Pro' version of EZTwain (http://www.dosadi.com/eztwain3.htm) is commercial, but can load & save JPEG files (and TIFF, PNG, etc.) - It uses the IJG's LibJpeg which is freely available.
