Convert BMP to JPG

I know what you're thinking, just another code to turn a BMP file into a JPG file. Well my code does do this, but its A LOT easier. All the other submissions are complicated and use several user controls/modules/class modules. This is a module with a function BMPtoJPG and THATS IT! All you need is one lone of code and your done! No other modules, or any other files are required. It uses VIC32.DLL, you can download it at Vote if you like.

Original Author: Munkee


BMPtoJPG "c:xxxx.bmp","c:xxxx.jpg" thats all you need!

Side Effects

None that I know of.


Just put this into a module and your set!
