I have images stored in a table, they may or may not be Bitmap, we do not have the extension stored in the table.
I need to convert every image in the table to JPEG using the ImageLib suite.

Anyone have any code showing how to do this?

Hmm. There is a strikingly similar Q posted in the imagelib_corperate_suite NG;) Don't hold your breath waiting for an answer over there.

I know it's not meant to work on streams.. but you could try saving the blob to a file and then use TPMultiImage.GetInfoAndType function. Then check the value of TPMultiImage.BFileType. I've never tried it but the help file description suggests that it might be what you are looking for

I really didn't want to save it to a file, first. Can I not load the TPMultiImage from a stream and then use the GetInfoAndType function to determine the graphic class I need to create?

Yes, it is the same, it was posted with my boss' account.

This is something I tried late last night and it seems to be able to tell the difference between Bimaps and JPEG. I got results like this:

FImageType JPEG, Fwidth 270, FHeight 180, Fbitspixel 24,  Fnumcolors 0, Fcompression RGB
FImageType BMP, Fwidth 270, FHeight 180, Fbitspixel 24,  Fnumcolors 0, Fcompression None




Uses DLL96V1
//....
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var ms : TMemoryStream;
     FImageType : String;
     Fwidth        : SmallInt;
     FHeight       : SmallInt;
     Fbitspixel    : SmallInt;
     Fplanes       : SmallInt;
     Fnumcolors    : SmallInt;
     Fcompression : String;
begin
     Memo1.Clear;
     Table1.Active := True;
     Table1.First;
 
     ms := TMemoryStream.Create;
 
     while not Table1.Eof do
          begin
          ms.Clear;
          TBlobField(Table1.FieldByName('Data')).SaveToStream(ms);
          ms.Position := 0;
          GetBlobInfo(ms.Memory,
                      ms.Size,
                      FImageType,
                      Fwidth,
                      FHeight,
                      Fbitspixel,
                      Fplanes,
                      Fnumcolors,
                      Fcompression );
          Memo1.Lines.Add(Format('FImageType %s, Fwidth %d, FHeight %d, Fbitspixel %d,  Fnumcolors %d, Fcompression %s',
                              [ FImageType , Fwidth , FHeight , Fbitspixel ,  Fnumcolors , Fcompression]));
 
 
          Table1.Next;
          end;
     ms.Free;
end;

ok, I will give it a try and see if it is what I need.
DLL96V1 is an ImageLib unit, correct?

It sure is.
I find it in C:\Program Files\SkyLine\ImageLib7\Vcl_Del7 on my system.
