How to make pictures with rounded corners in ASP.NET.



In this article, we will learn about how to make pictures with rounded corners in ASP.NET. Here are the steps involved:

  1. Add to your project a webform (for example, PictureViewer.aspx).
  2. In the code-file "PictureViewer.aspx.cs", insert this code:
  3. using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Drawing.Imaging;
    public partial class PictureViewer : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string Filename = Request.QueryString["Filename"];
            Int32 Radius = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["Radius"])  ;
            if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Filename) &&
                Radius > 0)
                System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = MakeRoundedCorners(Filename, Radius);
                Response.ContentType = "image/Png";
                bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Png);
        private Bitmap MakeRoundedCorners(String Filename,Int32 Radius)
            System.Drawing.Image im =
            Bitmap Bmp = new Bitmap(im, im.Width, im.Height);
            Graphics G = Graphics.FromImage(Bmp);
            Brush brush = new System.Drawing.SolidBrush(Color.Red);
            for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++)
                Point[] CornerUpLeft = new Point[3];
                CornerUpLeft[0].X = 0;
                CornerUpLeft[0].Y = 0;
                CornerUpLeft[1].X = Radius;
                CornerUpLeft[1].Y = 0;
                CornerUpLeft[2].X = 0;
                CornerUpLeft[2].Y = Radius;
                System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath pathCornerUpLeft =
                   new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath();
                pathCornerUpLeft.AddArc(CornerUpLeft[0].X, CornerUpLeft[0].Y,
                    Radius, Radius, 180, 90);
                pathCornerUpLeft.AddLine(CornerUpLeft[0].X, CornerUpLeft[0].Y,
                    CornerUpLeft[1].X, CornerUpLeft[1].Y);
                pathCornerUpLeft.AddLine(CornerUpLeft[0].X, CornerUpLeft[0].Y,
                    CornerUpLeft[2].X, CornerUpLeft[2].Y);
                G.FillPath(brush, pathCornerUpLeft);
            Color backColor = Bmp.GetPixel(0, 0);
            return Bmp;
  4. In Default.aspx, insert:
  5. <body style="background-color:Black">
      <form id="form1" runat="server"  >
        <asp:Image runat="server" ID="MyPicture" 
        <asp:Image runat="server" ID="Image1" 
  6. Don’t forget to add your own pictures in the project instead of mine: Wolf.jpg and me.jpg.

Good luck!
