    I am trying to find a way to control the compression and quality of the image saved by the ImageEditor.    

    Currently running the saveImageOnServer command:
    imageEditor.saveImageOnServer("", true)

    connected to a  "SaveImage" tool
     <telerik:ImageEditorTool CommandName="SaveImage" ToolTip="Save Image" />

    I loaded an image with following properties:
    Width = 1024px
    Height = 768px
    Size = 606KB
    DPI = 96
    BitDepth = 24

    I cropped the image to 1013 x 638 and saved the image. 

    The properties of the file changed to:
    Width = 1013px  Height = 638px Size = 1.32MB  DPI = 96 BitDepth = 32

    I was hoping the file size would decrease but I imagine file size increase has to do with the BitDepth increasing.   How can I control this with the ImageEditor control?

    Hello Kungfucoder,

    RadImageEditor does not offer a way to chance / customize the image compression out-of-the box, but you should be able use the OnImageSaving server event to compress the image before it is saved.

    Kind regards,
