Image Conversion in C#

Image Conversion in C#

I have found in forums, that people are searching for conversion of images between different formats.

In this article I am going to show the existing Image conversion libraries in .Net. 

Loading an Image

We can load the image from a file using Image.FromFile()

Eg: If we need to convert a image.jpg file to image.png - specify the source path in the above method

Saving an Image

The Image class contains a method Save() which can do the conversion as well.  The image type can be specified using the ImageFormat class.

For saving the above file we can use

image.Save("converted.png", ImageFormat.Png);


Supported Target Formats

Currently the ImageFormat class supports the following image formats:

·         Jpeg

·         Gif

·         Png

·         Bmp

·         Emf

·         Exif

·         Icon

·         MemoryBmp

·         Tiff

·         Wmf

I think it is more than enough for our requirements.

Sample Application

You can use the sample application to test the conversion by yourself.  For time being I am using only 4 format.  (Gif, Jpg, Png and Bmp).

On clicking the Load button it will load the image based on type in dialog box.  You can change the type filter in the appearing Image Dialog.

The  Convert To button will prompt with a Save dialog box and you can specify the image name there.  The type of image is determined by the radio buttons in the form.
