Hello all,

I have created a bitmap and would like to change it's pixel size dimensions to 640x200
before I save it.
How would I do that?

Here is my code:

Dim screenshot As Bitmap = CType(data.GetData(GetType(System.Drawing.Bitmap)), Bitmap)
'Here the conversion should happen.
screenshot.Save("C:\" & imagename & ".jpg")

Also, could you please tell me how does the size in kb changes?

Thanks!

Like this....

        Dim bmp As New Bitmap(640, 200)
        Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)
        g.DrawImage(screenshot, 0, 0, bmp.Width, bmp.Height)
        bmp.Save("C:\" & imagename & ".jpg")

>>Also, could you please tell me how does the size in kb changes?

Making the image bigger increases the size (in kb), making it smaller decreases the size.

* Just a side note...you are NOT creating a JPEG with your code!

What you have done in this line:

    bmp.Save("C:\" & imagename & ".jpg")

...is create a Bitmap with a .jpg extension.

To write as a JPEG, use the second parameter of Save():

    bmp.Save("C:\" & imagename & ".jpg", Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)
