Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
When you pass a parameter to an image encoder, the parameter is encapsulated in an EncoderParameter object. One of the private fields of the EncoderParameter object is a GUID that specifies the category of the parameter. The image encoders that are built into GDI+ receive parameters that belong to the following categories:
Platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
