How to Convert any Document File to JPG in C# .Net Framework

Today’s tutorial is going to cover the full setup process for automatically detecting incoming document files, then converting them into JPG images. All this can be accomplished with a single function call. Manually accomplishing this is very time consuming for very obvious reasons. Without any further ado, let’s dive straight in.

First order of business, installing our API client package via NuGet.

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

After that’s done, we can go ahead and set up our using statements and then input our file and JPG quality value as parameters into our function call.

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class ConvertDocumentAutodetectToJpgExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new ConvertDocumentApi();var inputFile = new System.IO.Stream(); // System.IO.Stream | Input file to perform the operation on.var quality = 56;  // int? | Optional; Set the JPEG quality level; lowest quality is 1 (highest compression), highest quality (lowest compression) is 100; recommended value is 75. Default value is 75. (optional)try{// Convert Document to JPG/JPEG image arrayAutodetectToJpgResult result = apiInstance.ConvertDocumentAutodetectToJpg(inputFile, quality);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi.ConvertDocumentAutodetectToJpg: " + e.Message );}}}}

Done.
