I thought you would like to know that this process produces a memory leak as the GC cannot collect the Hbitmap.

To remedy this you must import the gid32.dll to delete the object.
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DllImport("gdi32.dll")]
public static extern bool DeleteObject(IntPtr hObject);

However there must be a better solution.
