JPEG Compression Issue

Hello, I am changing the default compression set on an jpeg using the following code:

                    'Setup a JPEG codec with desired quality
                    Dim Codec, JPEGCodec As System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageCodecInfo
                    Dim EncParams As System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameters

                    For Each Codec In System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders
                        If Codec.MimeType = "image/jpeg" Then
                            JPEGCodec = Codec
                            Exit For
                        End If
                    Next 'Supposedly this cannot fail as image/jpg is built-in to GDI+ encoders

                    EncParams = New System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameters(1)
                    EncParams.Param(0) = New System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameter(System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder.Quality, imageCompression)

                    HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg"
                    outputImage.Save(HttpContext.Current.Response.OutputStream, JPEGCodec, EncParams)
                    'outputImage.Save(HttpContext.Current.Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)

It works great but not in IE6.  The browser just crashes.  When I uncomment the last line an comment out the line before the last it work fine.  Is there a way to fix this or is there another way to change the default compression applied to an image when it is saved?

Thanks

hi,

what are you setting compression quality to?

For example, is it something like:

Dim imageCompression as Long = 99L  <-- 99 is quality percentage you would like

I dont see why IE6 would crash, if the aspx page outputs a valid bitmap then there should be no issue.

Does it work in IE7?

regards,

saleek

Hello,
Yes I am using something like Dim imageCompression as Long = 99L.

I don't see why it would crash either. It works on IE7 and all other browsers.  For now I am using the following to get around it:

                    If HttpContext.Current.Request.UserAgent.Contains("MSIE 6") Then
                        outputImage.Save(HttpContext.Current.Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)
                    Else
                    outputImage.Save(HttpContext.Current.Response.OutputStream, JPEGCodec, EncParams)
                    End If

I did use fiddler and the responses were identical with and without compression.  IE6 just crashes for some reason when I use a custom compression.  Is this something I can fix.  It seems to be an issue with the browser.

THanks

Actually If I comment out this line flater in my code I can use compression just fine in IE6:

            'HttpContext.Current.Response.Close()

Any ideas why?

Thanks

No - but I I have no idea why you would close the response.

Perhaps IE could not load the image (compress it?) beore you closed the response.

All the best.
