C# wants to save Bitmap to High resolution

HEllo All,
   I need a help to save drawn image to some good resolution.

I am drawing My project related Graphs on C# Form using Drawline,drawsrtring etc.....
Up to hee it wwas fine. i am able to see the drawn image on Form with good resolution.

Now i need to save this "Graph image: to .jpeg format.when i am saving this the resolution is very low on the saved file.how can i overcome this problem? is there any solution to increase the Resolution of the image before saving.

Please help.....

code sample which i am using to save the image to file is

ImageFormat format = ImageFormat.JPEG  ;
            SaveFileDialog sfd = new SaveFileDialog();
            sfd.Filter = JPEGFiles(*.jpg)|*.jpg";
            if (sfd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {        // now save the image in the DrawArea    
                DrawArea.Save(sfd.FileName, format);

And please try different smoothmode, say,
g.SmoothingMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;
different interpolation mode, say,
grfx.InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBilinear;
when initializing component,

            this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);

            this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;

            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 273);
Bitmap b = new Bitmap(img.Width, img.Height, PixelFormat.Format32bppRgb);
Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(b);
b.SetResolution(img.HorizontalResolution, img.VerticalResolution);

g.SmoothingMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.SmoothingMode.HighQuality;
g.InterpolationMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.InterpolationMode.High;

b.Save(filename, ImageFormat.Jpeg);

From the example, you can see you need decide the color resolution when creating bitmap
and then resolution at two direction for graph.

try it.

Hi rendaduiyan,

  Thank you for your solution.but still i am not able to see good resolution one.....
it would be better if I can see your code.

I think it is the way you draw those strings that makes you think they are not in good resolution.

can you change the font, background and foreground color?

Or what the size of your area? what the font size?
