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).

Having trouble cropping an image (w3wp.exe has the file locked).


Hey Guys,

Hoping someone can help im having a real issue with resaving an image (after I get the crop area from a jquery control). I get a GDI error and when I run handle.exe on the file it is open with the w3wp.exe.

I have 2 methods (1 that saves images when they have been uploaded and one that is meant to open and resave the image with new dimensions [for cropping]).

        protected void btnCrop_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string profilePicFilePath = Server.MapPath("~/AppWide/User/Profile_Pics/" + userForPage.ProfilePicFilePath + "_temp" + ".jpg");

            //1) Load up image into memory
            Bitmap tempImage = new Bitmap(profilePicFilePath);

            Rectangle r = new Rectangle(Int32.Parse(x.Value), Int32.Parse(y.Value), Int32.Parse(w.Value), Int32.Parse(h.Value));

            System.Drawing.Image permImageToSave = cropImage(tempImage, r);

            //2) Resize image in memory using co-ordinates from boxes

            permImageToSave.Save(profilePicFilePath, ImageFormat.Jpeg);

            //3) Save the new image over the top of the old image

        //only allows uploading of .bmp, .jpg and .gif
        protected void ccMediaUploader_FileUploaded(object sender, UploaderEventArgs args)

            //first get th

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

Program for Format Conversion of An Image

.NET provides extensive support for image conversion. Any image can be processed from one format to another. Most common formats to which .NET have support for are .BMP, .EMF, .GIF, .ICO, .JPG, .PNG, .TIF and .WMF.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

First of all create an Access Database and place it in the App_Data folder of ASP.Net web site project. Then create a table "tblImg" with the following fields:

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

n this simple article you will learn that how we can get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB and C#.net.

Get Pixel Format:

Image consists of pixels to get the format of the pixel we have a property named pixel format. This property returns an enumeration of pixel format. This enumeration tells the pixel format.
