ImageCodecInfo

What are ImageCodecInfo classes? Can tehy make your images (gif, jpeg, etc.)
better or why to use them?

I made a (another) screen capture program and notice that captures
could be better. Could ImageCodecInfo class make screen capture picture
better?

Thanks for any info!

Cheers!

Hi James,

A Codec ia an algorithm for using different compression and/or color schemes
in images and other media file types. The ImageCodecInfo class encapsulates
Codec information about the Codec being used with a certain Image type. It
can be used to change the Codec of certain image file types when saving
them. You can read more about it at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codec

Now, whether or not ImageCodecInfo can help you depends on a number of
things. For example, certain image file types do not include this sort of
information, such as BitMaps. But others, such as JPEGs, TIFFs, etc. can and
often do.

A great place to learn more about any kind of imaging processing in
windows is http://www.bobpowell.net/ That is where I learned to use the
ImageCodecInfo class to do JPEG conversion. It should have any
information you need.

Bitmap.Save() does crash very often on Saving jpg's. It seems to dislike pictures on a random basis, but when it dislikes a picture there is no way around it. Take for example the picture http://home.foni.net/~sjost/fremd/IMGP5753-2.JPG I load the picture, and save it rotated by 270 degree. Works like charm: public void Rotate270AndSaveTest()

Hi I was wandering if anyone knew if it was possible to add custom EXIF tags (such as Photographer and Title) to a JPEG image, or to modify the existing tags (such as ImageDescription). There is an extremely good article on Code Project for reading these tags, but I cannot find any information on how to modify them: http://www.codeproject.com/cs/media/photoproperties.asp

I have the following class I use to save Tiff's. The problem I have with it is that the final size of the images are very large. If we scan directly to a file the final tiff may be 600-900 kb.s but with this code it is often 4000-5000 kb.s. What am I missing? public class EmrTiff : IDisposable { private string fileName; private ArrayList imageContainer = null;

I have an image issue that I do not understand. When I try to save a bitmap created from a picturebox image, I can save without exception so long as the bitmap was retrieved from a file and loaded into the picturebox. But if I load the image from the database into the picturebox and try to save (without change), I then get a null exception telling me that the encoder parameter is null. I'm speculating that the file provides the encoder...

I'm reading a series of images from a MS SQL table and saving them to directory.
