    Hi kengkit,

    According to your description, you want to make the rotated image smaller rather than larger, right?

    If so , you can try this code:

        Dim path As String = Server.MapPath("~/Images1/pic4.jpg")
        Dim pic As Bitmap = New Bitmap(path)
        Dim pic2 As Bitmap = New Bitmap(pic.Width, pic.Height, PixelFormat.Format32bppRgb)
        Dim rawFormat = pic.RawFormat
        For x As Integer = 0 To pic.Width - 1
            For y As Integer = 0 To pic.Height - 1
                pic2.SetPixel(x, y, pic.GetPixel(x, y))
        pic2.Save(path , rawFormat)

    You can refer to this link: https://stackoverflow.com/a/33188884

    If you want change the size ,you can change  PixelFormat.Format32bppRgb to others, you can refer to this link: PixelFormat Enum

    Best Regards,
