Remarks

GDI+ uses image encoders to convert the images stored in System.Drawing.Bitmap objects to various file formats. Image encoders are built into GDI+ for the BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, and PNG formats. An encoder is invoked when you call the erload:System.Drawing.Image.Save or erload:System.Drawing.Image.SaveAdd method of a System.Drawing.Image object.
