Convert TIFF to JPEG Extension Issue

I'm trying to use a SSIS 2008 package to go to a file share folder, retrieve all the files which will be in the Tiff format, and save them to another location (on the same server) so web users can have web access to them.  The catch is these pictures need to be saved as a gif or jpeg (what are some thoughts on .png?).

 I have the below code that is in a SSIS script task.  The SSIS package works, with no errors; however, it saves the tiff files as a Tiff file.  If i use an .aspx environment (I find this easier to test), the files are transfered to the correct folder, however, they don't have an extension (no .jpeg, .tiff, etc.)

 I developed this code on my computer and it works flawlessly, however, once I put it on the production server, this issue started to show up.  The production server doesn't recognize the jpeg or gif format, could this have something to do with it?

 Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Math
Imports System.Drawing
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime


Public Sub Main()
        Dim StoreFile As Directory
        Dim Directory As String
        Dim Files As String()
        Dim File As String
        Dim bm As Bitmap

        'Asign Save as Location
        Directory = "C:\xx\xx\website\Folder\ChartImages\"

        'Asign the files to variable
        Files = StoreFile.GetFiles("X:\x")

        'Loops through the files
        For Each File In Files
            bm = Bitmap.FromFile(File)
            bm.Save(Directory & System.IO.Path.GetFileName(File) & "", Jpeg)
        Next
End Sub

GIF and PNG formats are better for line art or graphic design where the image has large areas of solid colors.

Jpeg is best for photographs and pictures with fine detail.

PNG may be the best option for you if the encoders are installed.

Thanks for the response and the advice on the file format!

How do I know if the encoder is installed, and if it isn't, how do I do this?

Thanks!

When you save the file, it does not look like you are changing the file extension from .tiff to .jpeg.

shouldn't this
bm.Save(Directory & System.IO.Path.GetFileName(File) & "", Jpeg)

be this?
bm.Save(Directory & System.IO.Path.GetFileName(File) & ".JPG", Jpeg)
