Compress Image

Thanks to Bob Powel (http://www.bobpowell.net/onebit.htm) I'm able to
compress an image. However, this method takes a long time to compress an
image. Does anyone know a quicker way? (The images I have to compress are
already in black and white).

Code used:
Bitmap bmpOrig =
(System.Drawing.Bitmap)Image.FromFile(OrigFileName ).Clone();

Bitmap objConvImage = new Bitmap(bmpOrig.Width, bmpOrig.Height,
PixelFormat.Format1bppIndexed);
objConvImage.SetResolution(300,300);

BitmapData bmd = objConvImage.LockBits(new Rectangle(0, 0,
objConvImage.Width, objConvImage.Height),
ImageLockMode.ReadWrite, PixelFormat.Format1bppIndexed );

for(int y=0; y < bmpOrig.Height; y++)
{
for(int x=0; x < bmpOrig.Width; x++)
{
if(bmpOrig.GetPixel(x,y).GetBrightness()>0.5f)
SetIndexedPixel(x,y,bmd,true);
}
}
objConvImage.UnlockBits(bmd);
objConvImage.Save(FileName, _ImageCodecInfo, _ImageCodecParams);
objConvImage.Dispose();
bmpOrig.Dispose();

and the functions:
private static unsafe void SetIndexedPixel(int x, int y, BitmapData bmd,
bool pixel)
{
byte* p = (byte*)bmd.Scan0.ToPointer();
int index = y * bmd.Stride+(x>>3);
byte mask = (byte)(0x80>>(x&0x7));
if(pixel)
p[index]|=mask;

else
p[index]&=(byte)(mask^0xff);
}

private static ImageCodecInfo GetCodecInfo(string FileFormat)
{
ImageCodecInfo[] encoders = ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders();
for (int j=0; j < encoders.Length; ++j)
{
if (encoders[j].MimeType == FileFormat)
return encoders[j];
}

return null;
}

You can try this:

Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(/*[input filename]*/);
bmp.Save(/*[output filename]*/, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

By changing the System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat value, you can change
the type to convert to. Basically, all types other than BMP are lossy
(well, other than vectors, but never mind about those)

TIF isn't lossy neither is RGA and if the bitmap is already in 8bit
color, GIF isn't lossy either. I have no idea if .net supports any of
these formats though :)

I know that I can change the type this way. However, the saved imaged isn't
compressed. I want to compress the tiff image. It only holds black and white.
