int nNewHeight = 2 * bmpOriginal .Height;

System.Drawing.Bitmap bmpModified = new Bitmap(nNewWidth, nNewHeight);
g = Graphics.FromImage(bmpModified );

RectangleF rectDest =new RectangleF(

RectangleF rectSource = new RectangleF(0, 0, bmpOriginal.Width, bmpOriginal.Height);

rectSource ,

bmpModified .Save("C:\\myNewImage.gif", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif);

g = null;
