I need to:

1. Load a bitmap from a resource,
2. Scale it to a given x,y size,
3. Convert it to PNG and,
4. Dump the bits into a memory buffer (in PNG format).

Please suggest the best way to do that.
Preferably, no intermediate file I/O.

Language: C++
I can use: Raw GDI, ATL/WTL, GDI+

Point amount reflects urgency.

Thank you!

Using the

Status Image::Save(IStream *stream,
    const CLSID *clsidEncoder,
    const EncoderParameters *encoderParams
);

method and IStream (creating a memory stream), you can do #4.

Sorry, forgot to mention something:
The desired size is in inches, not in pixels.

Thanks.
