Running out of memory RRS feed

    Hi all, I am creating simple application to shrink images. Here is my function that I call everytime I find a jpeg in the folder.

    private void ResizeImages(Image imgImage, int intWidth,int intHeight, string SavePath)


    Bitmap b = new Bitmap(imgImage);

    Bitmap result = new Bitmap(intWidth, intHeight);

    Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(result);


    g.InterpolationMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic;

    g.DrawImage(b,0,0,intWidth, intHeight);






    For some reason, around 178 image, the application runs out of memory. Can someone tell me why?

    One quick question. The Image object that is passed in - where does it come from, and who cleans it up?

    It's in a loop. Something like bellow:

    foreach( folderinfo folder in directoryinfo.folders()){
    //bla bla bla

    Ok, I will try to dispose the image object to and see where that goes. I thought I got all of them, but I missed the image object. Thanks, for your support.

    Disposing the Image object worked. Thanks for all your help.
