Microsoft Windows Media Photo is a new codec that provides better image fidelity than JPEG with smaller file sizes and more features. Windows Media Photo images achieve lossy and lossless compression by using a single algorithm. Windows Media Photo images support existing metadata standards. For additional information about this format, see the Windows Media Ph.

The following code example demonstrates how to create an instance of and use a WmpBitmapDecoder.


// Open a Stream and decode a WDP image
Stream imageStreamSource = new FileStream("tulipfarm.wdp", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);
WmpBitmapDecoder decoder = new WmpBitmapDecoder(imageStreamSource, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default);
BitmapSource bitmapSource = decoder.Frames[0];

// Draw the Image
Image myImage = new Image();
myImage.Source = bitmapSource;
myImage.Stretch = Stretch.None;
myImage.Margin = new Thickness(20);
