Hi, I am wanting to load a image off a server using http (vb6 app). I have no problem connecting and using the xmlHTTP stream to load it. However it appears the image loads with the incorrect colour scheme/pallette into the Gfx Mill ? How does one load the jpg correctly in this manner? I have attached a screenshot of the original jpg and one of the jpg loaded into Gfx Mill via http. Is there a function/property I am not setting correctly ? Help! :w00t:
Dunk attached the following image(s):

Hi Dunk, I do not think that this is related to download. You can make sure by loading the same file locally and compare it. I guess that you have enabled color management in the BitmapViewer and that's why it displays the image differently than IrfanView. If you do not want to use color management, you should disable it. To get more information about this, take a look into this article: Displaying Images with Color Management If you need any information about color management, check out other articles in the Color Management section.

Hi Andrew, Yes I did try loading the same image with the gfx mill from file, with the result that the image was not discoloured. I will disable color management and see if this corrects the issue when loading via the http get method.

Colormanagement was the problem! BitmapViewer1.Bitmap.Data.ColorManagement.IsEnabled = False Thanks

In fact when you view an image without color management, colors are distorted, but not vice versa. :) But if you do not care about it (no need for color proofing before printing, etc), you can disable the color management indeed (as it done in most image viewers). It will increase repainting speed.
