The equivalent would be to import the correct reference library, and then a line of code something like this:

someapplicationLib.someapplicationClass = new someapplicationLib.someapplicationClass();

I want to convert this to C#.  Link
Public Sub resizeimG(ByVal Source As String)
        Dim jpeg
        jpeg = CreateObject("Persits.Jpeg")
        If Path.GetExtension(sourcefile) = ".jpg" Then
            Dim fn As New FileInfo(sourcefile)
            If fn.Length > 75000 Then
                jpeg.Open(sourcefile)
                If jpeg.width > 600 Then
                    jpeg.PreserveAspectRatio = True
                    jpeg.Width = 600
                    jpeg.Save(sourcefile)
                    jpeg = Nothing
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Unfortunately, I do not have the time to translate the code, but I can give you a fast rundown.

Do not use CreateObject or any equivalent, because it uses an external software and is dependent on the file extensions associations on the computer on which it is run. The software that will be launched will be different from one computer to another, and you cannot assume that it will have a PreserveAspectRatio property for instance. On my computer, it would launch Paint Shop Pro, that does not have the behavior expected from the code.

the FileInfo part is OK, it gives information about the file size.

For everything else, use a Bitmap object to get the size and an resize the image, using the information given at http://tech.pro/tutorial/620/csharp-tutorial-image-editing-saving-cropping-and-resizing

Looks to me like what you want to use here is the image class. (System.Drawing.Image)

What your routine looks like it is doing is reading JPG files and resizing them to a max of 600.

Here is a reference for image class:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/System.Drawing.Image_methods(v=vs.110).aspx


Something like this should do the trick.

(Note... I did not test this...this is just to use as a guide.)

Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");

if (image.width > 600) {
   resizePct = 600 / (float) image.width;
   image.width = 600;
   image.height = image.height * resizePct;
}

If you still have that COM component installed on your machine then you can continue to use CreateObject in VB.NET.
