    EncoderParameters encoderParams = new EncoderParameters(1);
    encoderParams.Param[0] = qualityParam;

    img.Save("check1.jpg", jpegCodec, encoderParams);
private static ImageCodecInfo GetEncoderInfo(string mimeType)
    // Get image codecs for all image formats
    ImageCodecInfo[] codecs = ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders();

    // Find the correct image codec
    for (int i = 0; i < codecs.Length; i++)
        if (codecs[i].MimeType == mimeType)

remove the
img.Save("check1.jpg", jpegCodec, encoderParams);
line and use the Image instance img to whatever you want. I guess you don't know how to use Image, but to get futher help on that front you'll need to tell us what you want to use it for. Display it in an UI (ASP.NET, Winforms, WPF)?
