Images, Bitmaps, and Metafiles

The Image class is an abstract base class that provides methods for working with raster images (bitmaps) and vector images (metafiles). The Bitmap class and the Metafile class both inherit from the Image class. The Bitmap class expands on the capabilities of the Image class by providing additional methods for loading, saving, and manipulating raster images. The Metafile class expands on the capabilities of the Image class by providing additional methods for recording and examining vector images.
