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.
