Save

Image.Save method (1 of 6)

Saves the image data to the underlying stream.

public void Save()

Examples

The following example shows how to save an entiree BMP image or part of it to a file or stream.

[C#]

string dir = "c:\\temp\\";
using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(dir + "sample.bmp"))
{
    Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Bmp.BmpImage bmpImage = (Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Bmp.BmpImage)image;
        
    // Convert to a black-white image
    bmpImage.BinarizeOtsu();

    // Save to the same location with default options.
    image.Save();

    Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.BmpOptions saveOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.BmpOptions();

    // A palette contains only two colors: Black and White in this case.
    saveOptions.Palette = Aspose.Imaging.ColorPaletteHelper.CreateMonochrome();

    // For all monochrome images (including black-white ones) it is enough to allocate 1 bit per pixel.
    saveOptions.BitsPerPixel = 1;

    // Save to another location with the specified options.
    image.Save(dir + "sample.bw.palettized.bmp", saveOptions);

    // Save only the central part of the image.
    Aspose.Imaging.Rectangle bounds = new Aspose.Imaging.Rectangle(image.Width / 4, image.Height / 4, image.Width / 2, image.Height / 2);
    image.Save(dir + "sample.bw.palettized.part.bmp", saveOptions, bounds);

    // Save the entire image to a memory stream
    using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    {
        image.Save(stream, saveOptions);
        System.Console.WriteLine("The size of the whole image in bytes: {0}", stream.Length);
    }

    // Save the central part of the image to a memory stream
    using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    {
        image.Save(stream, saveOptions, bounds);
        System.Console.WriteLine("The size of the central part of the image in bytes: {0}", stream.Length);
    }
}
//The output may look like this:
//The size of the whole image in bytes: 24062
//The size of the central part of the image in bytes: 6046

Examples

The following example loads a BMP image from a file, then saves the image to a PNG file.

[C#]

string dir = "c:\\temp\\";

using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(dir + "sample.bmp"))
{
    // Save the entire image to a PNG file.
    Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PngOptions saveOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PngOptions();
    image.Save(dir + "output.png", saveOptions);
}

This example shows the simple steps to Save an Image. To demonstrate this operation, we load an existing file from some disk location, performs Rotate operation on the image and Save the image in PSD format using File Path

[C#]

string dir = "c:\\temp\\";

//Create an instance of image class and initialize it with an existing file through File path
using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Load(dir + "sample.bmp"))
{
    //Rotate the image at 180 degree about X axis
    image.RotateFlip(Aspose.Imaging.RotateFlipType.Rotate180FlipX);

    //Save the Image as PSD to File Path with default PsdOptions settings
    image.Save(dir + "output.psd", new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PsdOptions());
}

The following example shows how to save an entiree BMP image or part of it to a file or stream.

{
    Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Bmp.BmpImage bmpImage = (Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Bmp.BmpImage)image;
        
    // Convert to a black-white image
    bmpImage.BinarizeOtsu();

    // Save to the same location with default options.
    image.Save();

    Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.BmpOptions saveOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.BmpOptions();

    // A palette contains only two colors: Black and White in this case.
    saveOptions.Palette = Aspose.Imaging.ColorPaletteHelper.CreateMonochrome();

    // For all monochrome images (including black-white ones) it is enough to allocate 1 bit per pixel.
    saveOptions.BitsPerPixel = 1;

    // Save to another location with the specified options.
    image.Save(dir + "sample.bw.palettized.bmp", saveOptions);

    // Save only the central part of the image.
    Aspose.Imaging.Rectangle bounds = new Aspose.Imaging.Rectangle(image.Width / 4, image.Height / 4, image.Width / 2, image.Height / 2);
    image.Save(dir + "sample.bw.palettized.part.bmp", saveOptions, bounds);

    // Save the entire image to a memory stream
    using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    {
        image.Save(stream, saveOptions);
        System.Console.WriteLine("The size of the whole image in bytes: {0}", stream.Length);
    }

    // Save the central part of the image to a memory stream
    using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    {
        image.Save(stream, saveOptions, bounds);
