    It's hard to know without some detail. What format is the input image and what dimensions, number of colours etc? What format, size, dimensions is the output image? You can find that if you recompress, say a JPEG image, twice, the final image is bigger than the original. Cheers

    I test on the .jpg and .gif format . and I call the getthumbnailImage as follow: myBitmap.GetThumbnailImage(intThumbnailWidth,intThumbnailHeight,myCallback,IntPtr.Zero); ofcourse the thumbnail's width and height is smaller than the origial one After the thumbnail was created , I clicked to view it property (in windows explorer). I found that the thumbnail's bit depth is 32 while my original image is only 24 . I think that why the thumail's filesize is bigger than the original . But I don't know how to set the bit depth property

    Change your PixelFormat to 24bit which is RGB, not ARGB
