Delphi: Load JPEG image to TBitmap

Tutorial by Delphian | Last update on 2021-05-13 | Created on 2012-07-17

Today I want to show you how to load a JPG image from a file into a TBitmap in Delphi, for example, to edit this image in an arbitrary way.

On the top of our unit, we have to add the unit "JPEG" to our uses clause:

uses Windows, ... ,JPEG;

And here is our code that loads the JPG and saves it in the bitmap:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
   jpg: TJpegImage;
   bmp: TBitmap;
   jpg := TJpegImage.Create;
   bmp := TBitmap.Create;
   // Image Processing

First, we create a new empty jpg image and we are using LoadFromFile to load an arbitrary image to it.

After that, we create an empty bitmap and with "Assign", we can load our "jpg" to the bitmap.

Then we can carry out any desired edits and afterwards, we should not forget to free both "bmp" and "jpg".
