Convert(string,string,RasterImageFormat,int,int,int,int,CodecsImageInfo) Method

Summary

Converts an image file from one format to another, creating a new file in the new format.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public void Convert( 
   string srcFileName, 
   string destFileName, 
   RasterImageFormat format, 
   int width, 
   int height, 
   int bitsPerPixel, 
   int pageNumber, 
   CodecsImageInfo info 
) 
Public Overloads Sub Convert( _ 
   ByVal srcFileName As String, _ 
   ByVal destFileName As String, _ 
   ByVal format As RasterImageFormat, _ 
   ByVal width As Integer, _ 
   ByVal height As Integer, _ 
   ByVal bitsPerPixel As Integer, _ 
   ByVal pageNumber As Integer, _ 
   ByVal info As CodecsImageInfo _ 
)  
public: 
void Convert(  
   String^ srcFileName, 
   String^ destFileName, 
   RasterImageFormat format, 
   int width, 
   int height, 
   int bitsPerPixel, 
   int pageNumber, 
   CodecsImageInfo^ info 
)  

Parameters

srcFileName
A String containing the input file name.

destFileName
A String containing the output file name.

format
The output file format. For valid values, refer to Summary of All Supported File Formats.

width
New width of the output image. If this value is not 0, then the output file will be resized to the width value. Use a value of 0 if you do not wish to resize the output file.

height
New height of the output image. If this value is not 0, then the output file will be resized to the height value. Use a value of 0 if you do not wish to resize the output file.

bitsPerPixel
The output image pixel depth. Note that not all bits per pixel are available to all file formats.

pageNumber
1-based index to the page number to convert.

info
A CodecsImageInfo object specifying more options for the conversion.

Remarks

If you convert to a lower bits-per-pixel format, this method optimizes the colors automatically. For example, when converting a 24-bit file (16 million colors) to an 8-bit file (256 colors) this method selects the best 256 colors to represent the 24-bit image

Note that this is a high-level method that does conversion from all possible formats to all possible formats.

Note: Passing 0 or -1 will convert the first page within the file.

Example

This example will convert create a RasterImage that contains as pages, thumbnails for all of the CMP images in a folder
