Creating Thumbnails From Different Image File Types

We have found the below reference link to generate a thumbnail image from JPEG image file.

http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/imagingnet/Creating+Thumbnails+from+JPEG+Images

But is it possible to generate a thumbnail from other image file types?, what other types of image files will be supported by ASPOSE to generate a thumbnail image.

Please provide your inputs as well as some reference URL's for the same.

Thank you.

Hi Arul,


Thank you for contacting Aspose support.

The referenced article uses the Jpeg’s EXIF & JFIF segments to extract the thumbnail images, because in Jpeg image format, the thumbnails are stored inside the image using the EXIF and/or JFIF segments. In case you wish to create thumbnails from other image formats such as PNG, BMP & TIF, we would suggest you to use the Image.Resize method and save the result as a new image. For further elaboration, please check the detailed article on Resizing Images.

Please feel free to write back in case you need our further assistance.

Hi Arul,


It is to bring in your knowledge that with the release of Aspose.Imaging for .NET 2.6.0, the API has exposed ResizeWidthProportionally and ResizeHeightProportionally methods for the Image class. These methods can be used to re-size existing images on the fly while preserving the aspect ratio. Please check the detailed article on Resize Images Proportionally, and feel free to contact us in case you face any difficulty.
