Version 1.9 Updated April 23, 2004
A97LoadSaveJpeg.zip contains a database demonstrating how to use the Intel Jpeg library with Access. Jpeg files are stored in their original compressed state within a Binary OLE avoiding the Ole object "bloat" issue. Here is the A2K version: A2KLoadSaveJpeg.zip
A standard Image control is used to display the contents of the field containing the Jpeg file. The Intel DLL is used to load the contents of the field directly into memory bypassing the need to create a temporary disk file.
The contents of the Image control, containing any supported source Image format, can be saved to disk as a Jpeg file.
Very large Jpeg files that could not be loaded into the standard Access Image control directly can now be loaded through the Intel Jpeg library.
Fixed Sample Report. Added A2K version.
Fixed File Dialogs. Added control to resize loaded Jpegs. Added sample Report. Starting to clean up the code!
Any Image file that can be loaded into the standard Image control can now be saved to a disk Jpeg file. Version 1.0 was restricted to Bitmap files.
