lossless compresson help please

Hi all, I need help please I need to make this bmpConvert process at lossless compression.... I am not sure how to go about that  you will see my MESS of code below any ideas any thoughts?

          // job is actually done by the graphics hardware accelerator card
          // and so is extremely fast. The rest of the time, the job is done by
          // very fast native code.
          // We will call into this GDI functionality from C#. Our plan:
          // (1) Convert our Bitmap into a GDI hbitmap (ie. copy unmanaged->managed)
          // (2) Create a GDI monochrome hbitmap
          // (3) Use GDI "BitBlt" function to copy from hbitmap into monochrome (as above)
          // (4) Convert the monochrone hbitmap into a Bitmap (ie. copy unmanaged->managed)

          IntPtr hbm = b.GetHbitmap(); // this is step (1)
          // Step (2): create the monochrome bitmap.
          // "BITMAPINFO" is an interop-struct which we define below.
          // In GDI terms, it's a BITMAPHEADERINFO followed by an array of two RGBQUADs
          BITMAPINFO bmi = new BITMAPINFO();
          bmi.biSize=40;  // the size of the BITMAPHEADERINFO struct
          bmi.biPlanes=1; // "planes" are confusing. We always use just 1. Read MSDN for more info.
          bmi.biBitCount=(short)bpp; // ie. 1bpp or 8bpp
          bmi.biCompression=BI_RGB; // ie. the pixels in our RGBQUAD table are stored as RGBs, not palette indexes
          bmi.biSizeImage = (uint)(((w+7)&0xFFFFFFF8)*h/8);
          bmi.biXPelsPerMeter=1000000; // not really important
          bmi.biYPelsPerMeter=1000000; // not really important
          // Now for the colour table.
          uint ncols = (uint)1<<bpp; // 2 colours for 1bpp; 256 colours for 8bpp
          bmi.cols=new uint[256]; // The structure always has fixed size 256, even if we end up using fewer colours
          if (bpp==1) {bmi.cols[0]=MAKERGB(0,0,0); bmi.cols[1]=MAKERGB(255,255,255);}
          else {for (int i=0; i<ncols; i++) bmi.cols[i]=MAKERGB(i,i,i);}
          // For 8bpp we've created an palette with just greyscale colours.
          // You can set up any palette you want here. Here are some possibilities:
          // greyscale: for (int i=0; i<256; i++) bmi.cols[i]=MAKERGB(i,i,i);
          // rainbow: bmi.biClrUsed=216; bmi.biClrImportant=216; int[] colv=new int[6]{0,51,102,153,204,255};
          //          for (int i=0; i<216; i++) bmi.cols[i]=MAKERGB(colv[i/36],colv[(i/6)%6],colv[i%6]);
          // optimal: a difficult topic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_quantization
          // Now create the indexed bitmap "hbm0"
          IntPtr bits0; // not used for our purposes. It returns a pointer to the raw bits that make up the bitmap.
          IntPtr hbm0 = CreateDIBSection(IntPtr.Zero,ref bmi,DIB_RGB_COLORS,out bits0,IntPtr.Zero,0);
          // Step (3): use GDI's BitBlt function to copy from original hbitmap into monocrhome bitmap
          // GDI programming is kind of confusing... nb. The GDI equivalent of "Graphics" is called a "DC".
          IntPtr sdc = GetDC(IntPtr.Zero);       // First we obtain the DC for the screen
           // Next, create a DC for the original hbitmap
          IntPtr hdc = CreateCompatibleDC(sdc); SelectObject(hdc,hbm); 
          // and create a DC for the monochrome hbitmap
          IntPtr hdc0 = CreateCompatibleDC(sdc); SelectObject(hdc0,hbm0);
          // Now we can do the BitBlt:
          // Step (4): convert this monochrome hbitmap back into a Bitmap:
          System.Drawing.Bitmap b0 = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromHbitmap(hbm0);
          // Finally some cleanup.
          return b0;

The following .NET code can be used for compressing a bitmap

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Imaging;
class Example_SetTIFFCompression
    public static void Main()
        Bitmap myBitmap;
        ImageCodecInfo myImageCodecInfo;
        Encoder myEncoder;
        EncoderParameter myEncoderParameter;
        EncoderParameters myEncoderParameters;

        // Create a Bitmap object based on a BMP file.
        myBitmap = new Bitmap("Shapes.bmp");

        // Get an ImageCodecInfo object that represents the TIFF codec.
        myImageCodecInfo = GetEncoderInfo("image/tiff");

        // Create an Encoder object based on the GUID
        // for the Compression parameter category.
        myEncoder = Encoder.Compression;

        // Create an EncoderParameters object.
        // An EncoderParameters object has an array of EncoderParameter
        // objects. In this case, there is only one
        // EncoderParameter object in the array.
        myEncoderParameters = new EncoderParameters(1);

        // Save the bitmap as a TIFF file with LZW compression.
        myEncoderParameter = new EncoderParameter(
        myEncoderParameters.Param[0] = myEncoderParameter;
        myBitmap.Save("ShapesLZW.tif", myImageCodecInfo, myEncoderParameters);
    private static ImageCodecInfo GetEncoderInfo(String mimeType)
        int j;
        ImageCodecInfo[] encoders;
        encoders = ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders();
        for(j = 0; j < encoders.Length; ++j)
            if(encoders[j].MimeType == mimeType)
                return encoders[j];
        return null;

So how would you say I incorperate it into this code?
static void funWriteTiff(string strFileName, string strActualText)
            //  Change bitmap values to match your file size
            Bitmap imgThumb = new Bitmap(1024, 1024);
            //Image imgThumb = new Bitmap(4000, 1500);
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
            Graphics objGraphics = Graphics.FromImage(imgThumb);
            //System.Drawing.Bitmap b = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(imgThumb);
            //  Font objFont = new Font("Arial", 12, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Pixel);
            Font objFont = new Font("Courier New", 12, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Pixel);
            objGraphics = Graphics.FromImage(imgThumb);

            // Set Background color

            //objGraphics.SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;
            objGraphics.TextRenderingHint = TextRenderingHint.AntiAlias;
            //Color.FromArgb (0,0,0) = black; change values to change text color
            objGraphics.DrawString(strActualText, objFont, new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(0, 0, 0)), 0, 0);

            //Convert to 1bpp
            imgThumb = BmpConverter.CopyToBpp(imgThumb, 1);
            imgThumb.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Tiff);
            byte[] be = ms.ToArray();
            using (var fileStream = File.OpenWrite(strFileName))
