    What are you trying to do?
    Delphi can handle JPeg, there are many PAQs on the subject.

    The load image dialog box doesn't seem to work with JPGs as well as it does with BMPs. For example, the JPG extension is absent in the filters property.

    just add the jpeg unit into the uses clause,
    >The load image dialog box
    should then support it (no code needed)

    The only thing is JPGs take ages to load, and when my software tries to modify a image I get the error 'Can only modify an image if it contains a bitmap'.
