"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're willing to use a third-party (free!) package and make a command line call from your VB6 code, GraphicsMagick can do it. Here are two EE articles that show where/how to download it, as well as some sample calls:

Create a PDF file with Contact Sheets (montage of thumbnails) for all JPG files in a folder and each of its subfolders using an automated, batch method

Create an image (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, TIF, etc.) from a multi-page PDF

In your case, you'll use the convert operation and the call will be something like this:

from PNG to JPG:
gm convert input.png output.jpg

from GIF to TIFF:
gm convert input.gif output.tif

There are, of course, many options/parameters that you may want to use. Regards, Joe

Windows XP SP1 and later has Windows Image Acquisition Library v2.0. Just add reference to it in your VB project:
Dim Img 'As ImageFile
Dim IP 'As ImageProcess

Set Img = CreateObject("WIA.ImageFile")
Set IP = CreateObject("WIA.ImageProcess")

Img.LoadFile "C:\YourFile.png"

IP.Filters.Add IP.FilterInfos("Convert").FilterID
IP.Filters(1).Properties("FormatID").Value = wiaFormatJPEG
IP.Filters(1).Properties("Quality").Value = 5

Set Img = IP.Apply(Img)

Img.SaveFile "C:\NewFile.jpg"
