Subject: Re: Can't Save JPEG or BMP in color?????
In reply to: dave bracken 's message, "Can't Save JPEG or BMP in color?????" on 15:00:38 04/15/03 Tue

Hi Dave,

This is a particularity of the JPEG format. It is optimized for true color images and 256 gray scale (photographic like).

You will need to check ImageScrollBox.Graphic.ImageFormat, and if it is not ifTrueColor or ifGray256, you must convert it to save it as JPEG. For example, if it is, ifColor256, you must convert it to true color with the TImageFormatTransform before saving.

Best regards,
