Return Value

This method does not return a value.

Calling the Dispose method allows the resources used by this Image to be reallocated for other purposes.

Call Dispose when you are finished using the Image. The Dispose method leaves the Image in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the Image so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the Image was occupying. For more information, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources and Implementing a Dispose Method.

NoteNote:

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the Image. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the Image object's Finalize method.
