Public Function SaveAs( _ ByVal FileName As String, _ ByVal Format As EFileFormat _ ) As Integer
|Visual Basic (Usage)||Copy Code|
Dim instance As CiImage Dim FileName As String Dim Format As EFileFormat Dim value As Integer value = instance.SaveAs(FileName, Format)
This method saves the following image file formats:
- Bitonal: TIFF, PCX, BMP
- Color and Grayscale: TIFF, BMP, WMF, JPEG, Targa, PCX, and PICT.
If Format=ciEXT, then the format is derived from file extension of the FileName parameter.
See EFileFormat for list of supported formats. Some formats are "read-only" and are not supported by this method.
Additional formats might be supported. Review current specification at www.inliteresearch.com or contact technical support firstname.lastname@example.org
Some formats use lossy compression. Saving images with those compression methods will modify the saved image as compared to the original image. For JPEG, the amount of JPEG compression is controlled by the JpegQuality parameter.
Not all formats support the range of CiImage. BitsPerPixel values. Prior to being saved, the image is converted to the nearest supported BPP of that particular format. For example, a bitonal image is converted to Grayscale prior to saving as a JPEG format. The saved file image may show severe blocking effects, typical of JPEG. Similarly a Color or Grayscale image is converted to bitonal prior to being saved as a TIFF format.
