Resizing an image in native code

I load an image from a file. It's a multi page TIFF file:

Dim oImg As System.Drawing.Image
Dim i As Integer

oImg = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(mstrFileName)
i = (some page number)
oImg.SelectActiveFrame(System.Drawing.Imaging.FrameDimension.Page, i)

Now I want to resize the image width and height and save the resulting stretched image as a .jpg or whatever. I thought this would be simple, but there are so many people trying to sell 3rd party controls out there, and so many people using Picture Boxes and whatnot that I can't find the example I'm looking for as I'm getting drowned in the noise. I don't want to use any UI components. I don't want to use any 3rd party components. I want this in vanilla, non-UI based VB.NET code... please

C# is acceptable ... at a push.

Dim intNumberOfPages As Integer
        Dim intPageNo as Integer
        Dim oImg As Image
        Dim oBmp As Bitmap
        Dim oGrap As Graphics

        'Get Page Number 4 (0 based)
        intPageNo = 3

        oImg = Image.FromFile("your File Name.TIF")
        intNumberOfPages = oImg.GetFrameCount(System.Drawing.Imaging.FrameDimension.Page)

        oImg.SelectActiveFrame(System.Drawing.Imaging.FrameDimension.Page, intPageNo)
        Select Case True
            Case oImg.VerticalResolution < oImg.HorizontalResolution
                oBmp = New Bitmap(CInt(oImg.Width), CInt(Int(oImg.Height * oImg.HorizontalResolution / oImg.VerticalResolution)))
                oGrap = Graphics.FromImage(oBmp)
                oGrap.DrawImage(oImg, 0, 0, oBmp.Width, oBmp.Height)
                oBmp.Save("your target file.png", ImageFormat.Png)
                oBmp.Dispose()
                oGrap.Dispose()
            Case oImg.HorizontalResolution < oImg.VerticalResolution
                oBmp = New Bitmap(CInt(Int(oImg.Width * oImg.VerticalResolution / oImg.HorizontalResolution)), CInt(oImg.Height))
                oGrap = Graphics.FromImage(oBmp)
                oGrap.DrawImage(oImg, 0, 0, oBmp.Width, oBmp.Height)
                oBmp.Save("your target file.png", ImageFormat.Png)
                oBmp.Dispose()
                oGrap.Dispose()
            Case Else
                oImg.Save("your target file.png", ImageFormat.Png)
        End Select

        oImg.Dispose()
        oImg = Nothing

(obviously you'd normally do something like iterate intPageNo from 0 to intNumberOfPages - 1, but this is enough to illustrate the solution)

So basically, if the horizontal and the vertical resolution of the TIF pages aren't the same, it stretches the smaller of the two to match the larger of the two, rendering the images in the originally intended dimensions. Job done.
