I am looking to save some room on a drive and it seems that converting my .tif files to .jpg would be a good idea.

Using VB6, how could I convert a .tif to a .jpg?

My first thought is using the command line function of ImageMagick, but I wanted to hear from the community their ideas.

Here's some vb6 code to convert .tif to .jpg => http://www.catenary.com/howto/tif2jpeg.html

But I think your first idea of using ImageMagick is a better way to go, unless you have some very special needs.  Why reinvent the wheel.

If you don't want to use ImageMagick then other options are:
1. Free WIA tool from Microsoft: Windows Image Acquisition Automation Library
2. Using Intel JPEG Library (my favorite method):
