Once the dialog box appears, set the properties of the image you are converting by setting its output size, format, and output filename, to name a few.

The instance handle is needed by Direct3D’s initialization, as well as window creation, and the command show ID is used after the window’s creation when it is time to show the window, which we’ll see throughout this chapter.
