Resize/Crop jpeg image

Hi!
I have a TImage that uses LoadFromFile() to load a jpeg image.
I have a method for checking the size of the image (e.g. max 640x480) and want to change the the image size to the max size and then use SaveToFile() to save that image again.
The reason for this is to make the filesize smaller when sending via email or internet.

Any help would be grealy appreciated!

Thanks!

Assuming that you're using a TJPEGImage, you can save a bunch more space by reducing the value in the CompressionQuality property.

First, if you want to reduce the file size , you should reduce image size , not increase it.

to change a jpeg image size , you can create a bitmap object , and set it's height and width to your desired size , and then use draw() method to draw the jpeg image in bitmap object, then again draw it to a jpeg image and save it to a file.

I'm using Borland C++ 4 and I don't have the TJPEGImage compnent available, I'm using TImage.

Yes, reduce the size. If the size is larger than 640x480 then it should reduce the size to 640x480.

I'll check out the drawing thingy, thanks.
