     This is a *must* have for anyone that wants to extend the supported image formats of their .NET applications. Using the FreeImage library you can open many new image formats, including... BMP,Dr. Halo,ICO,IFF,JBIG,JNGJPEG/JIF,KOALA,LBM, Kodak PhotoCD,MNG,PCX,PBM,PGM,PNG,PPM,PhotoShop,Sun RAS,TARGA,TIFF,WBMP,XBM,XPM. FreeImage can do more than just read images, it can also write them, but this example just shows you the quickest and easiest way to open an image using FreeImage, for information on FreeImage, visit the web site at If you want to download this example complete with the FreeImage DLL then you will have to download it from my web site this is because PSC keeps deleting the binaries. Alternatively you could visit the FreeImage home page as mentioned above to download the DLL. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Thanks, and enjoy!!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
