System.Drawing.Image.Fromfile is not working


I am trying to get the height and width of the image dynamically.  The reason is I am loading multiple images using code, where the image name is from the database. 

Here is my code:

in the ascx page, I have an asp image

<asp:image id="imgInfo" runat="server" /> 


In the code behind

string ImagePath = "~/products/img/" + dataviewImgInfo[0]["imgName"].ToString();

System.Drawing Image imgProd = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(ImagePath);

if(imgProd.Height > 200)

imgInfo.Height = 100;




imgInfo.Height = 200



WHen I run this page I am getting the folloiwng error

OutOfMemory when resizing image


I've been pulling my hair out on this one. I have a image gallery module in asp.net. I'm using Telerik RadUpload to upload a sinlge image. I then save the image on the server and create a thumbnail and save it as well. There is no loop involved and is one at a time. It always seems to work when I run it locally on Windows 7 (IIS7) but on the server IIS6 I keep getting OutOfMemory errors. The images I'm trying are barely 1MB so not huge files. I've gone through google and bing over past several days and can't seem to find a solution. In my resize methods I'm using the "using" statement on the image reference, etc. I can pretty much always make it fail with the 3rd line below:

ruPhoto.UploadedFiles[0].SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/DesktopModules/Gallery2/Photos/" + newPhotoName));
System.Drawing.Image photo = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile(Server.MapPath("~/DesktopModules/Gallery2/Photos/" + newPhotoName));
//System.Drawing.Image img = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(photo); <--- will cause outofmemory error

if I just use the photo variable then the OutOfMemory will occur later in the resize code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

image resizer not working


I thought the following image resizer with the following code was working with smaller images but one thing I know for sure is that it's not working with larger ones. I want to have a max height of 300 px. The dimensions work out fine but don't save with the file. If someone can help me understand a better way, I'd appreciate it.

    Protected Sub FormatImage(ByVal ful As FileUpload, ByVal strFile As String) 
        Const intMaxWidth As Integer = 300 'max width
        Const intMaxHgt As Integer = 300 'max height
        Dim intNewWidth, intNewHgt As Integer 'new width/height
        Dim sglSize As Single 'temp variable used when calculating new size
        Dim imgOriginal As Image 'holds the original image
        Dim dblWidthProp, dblHgtProp As Double
        imgOriginal = Image.FromStream(ful.FileContent)
        intNewWidth = imgOriginal.Width
        intNewHgt = imgOriginal.Height
        Dim imgOutput As New Bitmap(intNewWidth, intNewHgt)
        If strFile IsNot Nothing And CheckFileFormat(strFile) = True Then
                Do While intNewWidth > 300 Or intNewHgt > 300
                    dblWidthProp = imgOriginal.Width / intMaxWidth
                    dblHgtProp = imgOriginal.Height / intMaxHgt
                    If dblWidthProp > dblHgtProp Then

Image stretch inside a grid stops working horizontally once columns are added to grid.

I have a simple setup of a window. Window contains a grid, inside the grid there is an image. I want the image to always stretch across the entire cell. I've set it's Stretch property to Fill and it works fine, as long there is only one column in the parent grid. As the window is resized, the image stretches correctly. As soon as I add another column, the image stops stretching horizontally. Vertially it works just like before, horizontally it now appears with a fixed width corresponding to the width of the picture used as the source. Does not matter which column it's positioned in, and I've tried encapsulating it into another grid but behaviour does not change. It behaves the same in both Visual studio 2010 designer and at runtime. In addition when I tried to encapsulate it in a second grid, this seond grid also now has altered behavior - instead of sizing itself to it's container (both height and width are not set) as it's parent grid does, it now sizes itself to its contents - the image. But only horizontally. What is going wrong here, is this a bug or am I missing something, and any advice on how I can get the image to fill one of the cells of a grid with more then one column?

WPF TreeView working with Image Files

Hi, I'm working with a TreeView in my WPF App to control images files in my disk. The ItemsSource of TreeView is binding with a dynamic List<T> like these: <TreeView ItemsSource="{Binding Path=Thumbnail,ElementName=Tree}" x:Name="treeViewDocument" Width="230" Height="500" Margin="0,0,0,10"> <TreeView.ItemTemplate> <HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Path=MoreThumbnail}"> <DockPanel HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"> <Image Source="{Binding Path=MyImage}" Width="{Binding Path=MySize}"/> </DockPanel> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> </TreeView.ItemTemplate> </TreeView> in the code behind I have: private List<MeusItens> _MyImages; public Window4() { InitializeComponent(); } public List<MyImages> Thumbnail { get { if (_MyImages == null) { MyImages obj = new MyImages("C:\\Temp\\1.tif", "70"); _MyImages = new List<MyImages>(); _MyImages.Add(obj); } return _MyImages; } } public class MyImages { public MyImages(string strImg, string strSize) { MyImage = strImg; MySize = strSize; }

resizing image after jcrop


Hi guys,

I'm using JCrop, by using Mikes great article at: http://www.mikesdotnetting.com/Article/95/Upload-and-Crop-Images-with-jQuery-JCrop-and-ASP.NET

There are two things I haven't been able to figure out how to do though:

(1) How do I check if the uploaded image is big enough? (i.e. how do I determine width of image is > 200px")

(2) How do I resize the cropped image to 200px in width.

Any help/ideas would be very much appreciated.



Storing image in sql express 2008 not working



I am trying to store an image into sql express 2008 and retrieve it on a php page.

I used the following query to do the storing:

    Id int,
    Name varchar(50) not null,
    Photo varbinary(max) not null

INSERT INTO Employees (Id, Name, Photo) SELECT 10, 'John', BulkColumn from Openrowset( Bulk 'C:\n502696575_60323_4407.jpg', Single_Blob) as EmployeePicture


then when I tried to retrieve it on my php page. only 1/3 of the image gets displayed. the image I uploaded was about 20kb in size, so I don't think it's because varbinary got maxed out. Can any one tell me what is going on?


C# Tutorial - Image Editing: Saving, Cropping, and Resizing

In C# it can be tiresome to do certain image editing functions using GDI+. This post has some fun editing methods which can come in handy at times. I have also included a nice little C# program to show all the functionality of the methods below.

Saving a Jpeg
The first thing to do here is set up the method signature with the input parameters. These are the save file path (string), the Image to save (System.Drawing.Bitmap), and a quality setting (long).

WorkflowDesigner.Load causes Grid resizing mouse cursor to stop working.


Hi all,

We have a problem where WorklowDesigner.Load() causes the WPF Grid control's resizing mouse cursor not to come up. I have demo app written if anyone wants to double check. http://cid-467e12cdf12776bc.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/WpfApplication6.zip


If you just run the demo, you will see the resize cursor will work when you hover over the red grid splitters. However if you go into the wfusercontrol2 control and uncomment this line //wf.Load(new System.Activities.Statements.Flowchart()); , then run the application again you will notice the resize cursor does not show up when hovering over the  grid splitter.


It seems as though under the hood somewhere this exception occurs: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Activities.Presentation.Aero, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Image.LayoutTransform not working


I want to scale an image within a grid.row that is height="*".  But the ScaleTransform is to scaling the image as I expect it to. How do I shrink and expand an image?


<Grid x:Name="grdMain">
      <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
      <RowDefinition Height="auto"></RowDefinition>

    <Border Grid.Row="0">
      <Image x:Name="Image1"  >
          <ScaleTransform x:Name="ScaleTransform1"
                          ScaleX="{Binding Path=Value, ElementName=Slider1}"
                          ScaleY="{Binding Path=Value, ElementName=Slider1}" />

            System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
            imgin.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
            ms.Position = 0;
            byte[] data = new byte[ms.Length];
            byte[] Image1 = ms.ToArray();
            return Image1;

    public static void FillRoundedRectangle(Graphics g, Rectangle r, int d, Brush b)

        gp.AddArc(r.X, r.Y, d, d, 180, 90);

Image resizing


Hi ,

I am using Graphics object to resize and crop an image and then finally save it to the disk.

I am either able to resize or crop but not both.

May be I am not passing the parameters to the graphics object correctly.

Please help.


image resizing



In my web app i'm uploading pictures of employees and I need to resize the images while maintaining the same quality.  The best example I can think of is the way facebook does their image resizing.  When you upload a profile picture...the picture shown in your profile page isn't the full size...i tried to find an algorithm that would work but am having no luck. 

 Any ideas?


Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.
