HI

I want to save GDI graphics(canvas drawing) into Enhanced meta file(EMF). I am following MSDN guide to create meta files.

In my application there are couple of bitblt routines , this means when i draw same thing into EMF file this bitblt comman stores whole bitmap as part of EMF file instead of just as metafile records. In result the file size get large like around 10 - 30 MB. And if i compress this file with some file compressor the resulting file is just 100 -200 KB.  this means  this bitblt is taking toomuch space in EMF file.

Is there any way to get rid of this problem.?

You know what you draw on a DC is raster graphics and EMF is for vector graphics? Of course you can store raster data in a EMF but it's not for this kind of usage...
