If the purpose is to improve performance, you want to resize image files on the server not the client controls. If the file to be download is still the same size, only shown smaller, then what's the benefit?

yes but how to you state the size of an image in an asp image? if you set the hieght and width it always gets rendered as a style not image width etc

All ASP controls end up rendered as HTML/Javascript in the browser.  The image control is no different.  

[CodeCruiser]'s point is perfectly valid.  Whatever size the browser renders the image, what matters for speed is the actual number of bytes being sent across the wire.  Resize the image itself, if you're really worried about speed.  Otherwise an ASP control is as good as an HTML control.

the images are the correct size but there are a few articles on lone saying about google is now looking for you to state the size of the image on the image. this way the page knows the size of each image before it loads. They say you can set them in css if you want but if so do both.

After some testing it does give a visual load time benifit, and if it gives a 0.3% chance of being higher ranked, i need to do it.

every time is use the asp image it renders is with
<img id="MainContent_Image" src="image.png" alt="imagename" style="height:200px;width:50px;" />

but need it more like:
<img src="image.png" alt="imagename" width="200" height="50" />

You may have to use img tags directly then.

Hmm.  The two syntaxes are functionally identical.  I would expect Google to accept either one.  Does Google explicitly state they prefer one over the other?

Cannot see it on google, but they never say what they are looking for.
Time wise it is no different, but in a visual way it looks like its faster as the page does not go blank for as long. Just want to try it.

Can you make two versions of a page (or two separate pages) - one with ASP controls and one with HTML controls, but otherwise identical (or functionally identical).  That might tell you what you need to know.
