I would like to know if there is a free solution for saving the content I generate on a PictureBox to a jpg image file.

Actually I'm using SavePicture to save it as a bmp, but I would like to save to a jpg without any external library, or with a light and free library.

Thank you !

gplana; yes there are a few ways to do that...

To save in JPG format you have to use a external library like gbitmap or freeImage.

URL: http://freeimage.sourceforge.net, it is a open GPL library (General Public Licence) Open Source, that allows you to work with the most famous image formats. (PNG, JPG, GIF, ICO, ETC. )
