public sealed class Metafile : System.Drawing.Image


When you use the System.Drawing.Image.Save(string) method to save a graphic image as a Windows Metafile Format (WMF) or Enhanced Metafile Format (EMF) file, the resulting file is saved as a Portable Network Graphics (PNG) file instead. This behavior occurs because the ndptecgdiplus component of the dnprdnshort does not have an encoder that you can use to save files as .wmf or .emf files.
