Using Image Encoders and Decoders

Windows GDI+ provides the Image class and the Bitmap class for storing images in memory and manipulating images in memory. GDI+ writes images to disk files with the help of image encoders and loads images from disk files with the help of image decoders. An encoder translates the data in an Image or Bitmap object into a designated disk file format. A decoder translates the data in a disk file to the format required by the Image and Bitmap objects. GDI+ has built-in encoders and decoders that support the following file types:

  • BMP
  • GIF
  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • TIFF

GDI+ also has built-in decoders that support the following file types:

  • WMF
  • EMF
  • ICON
