Images coming out darker then source.

I load a bitmap and write text to it and output to a 100 quality Jpeg or a bitmap as well and all the colors seem to be darker / faded.
I dont have a clue why this is happening? Any suggestions?
I have tried setting the useEnbeddedColorManagement to true. NO idea what this effects but it doesnt help my problem.
System.Drawing.Image b = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile("myimage.bmp"), true);
System.Drawing.Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(b);
//write text here
ContentType = "image/jpeg";
b.Save(Response.Output, myImageCodecInfo, myEncoderParameters);
//b.Save("C:\\inetpub\\wwwroot\\alcv4\\blah.jpg", ImageFormat.Jpeg);
Arr! We be DOS pirates!

Two things to note here.

1) You're converting a bmp to a jpg. JPEG files are lossy - they're a lot smaller than BMPs, at the cost of some image quality. If you want bigger, but better quality, JPEGs, you need to . The difference is quality is especially visible if the bitmap contains line art, instead of a photo. This article by Dino Esposito explains how to save a JPEG with a better quality (and lower compression ratio)
2) When JPEGs are rendered, the image data must be converted to pixel values. Each browser or image viewer has its own algorithm for how this is done, and each has a different algorithm for correcting brightness (gamma). In observations, IE tends to render images a bit darker than other image viewers. BMPs, of course, are stored using pixel values and are thus (usually) the same on all viewers on a single monitor.

Image references override? Source says images/pix.gif properties say dnndir/page/tabid/100/images/pix.gif
Here is the problemMy Custom Module reads an XML file which has HTML in it specifying the source of an image (src="images/pix.gif") When it shows up in the module it does not show up and looking at properties shows a full path (e.g. http://localhost/DNN/testpage/tabid/100/images/pix.gif) where it seems to be adding the local path to the beginning.  The Module is configurable so that the tabid will certainly change as well as the page.  I don't mind doing a transform on the XML file coming in but I can tell the folks who publish the original source what to put in place of src="...

Hi, I have a project where clients viewing my website can buy t-shirts. They can choose from a number of t-shirt colors and shapes which are their plain colour. They can also choose a number of prints to be placed on the t-shirt. These will be graphics stored in a database. My problem is on how I can displaty the t-shirt with the graphics or logo they chose on te t-shirt. It would be something like drawing text on an image but instead drawing an existing image on the base image. Any Ideas? (I am using visual studio 2005 and vb.NET)   RegardsMerovingian you 1.

Image Sources
Could someone tell me if it is possible to load a XUL or HTML image element using a binary data stream or a binary string instead of a URL. I already have the image as a stream (not opened from a URL) and just want to render it. I know I can load the raw pixels instead and push them to a <canvas> tag but then I miss out on all the compression and optimisation functions built into the actual image (PNG, GIF etc).

Image on Image
I am trying to display a page that has image of a map on it. The user can then place other images of red thumbtacks on the image at different locations. Then when these thumb tacks are clicked on, they open a folder of pics related to the area. I saw a method in the imageButton class that returns the (x,y) of the location where the user clicked. I thought I could use this information to place another, smaller image button, on that area. My problem is that i can't seem to get the bottom imageButton to be transparent so I can see the smaller one. Am i on the right track with this. Any advi...

Imaging, but not imaging
We multicasted to 43 machines. Updated the image on the master. Multicasted the updated image to 36 machines. (the other 7 wouldn't join the session for some unknown reason). I visually verified that all 36 were imaging. One of the 8 which didn't rename appears to not even have been imaged. The problems with the previous image were still there. It's as though the machine didn't image even though I saw it take part in the session and the temp bar going across the screen. What the heck's going on here?
