I have captured picture using
and I have the image in image control.
Now the problem is how to save this captured image to my database.?
normally i did this task in windows form via converting image to byets. but now bit confused in UWP.
thanks in advance

What I have tried:

private async void button_Copy_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
//create camera instance with camera capture ui
CameraCaptureUI captureUI = new CameraCaptureUI();
captureUI.PhotoSettings.Format = CameraCaptureUIPhotoFormat.Jpeg;
captureUI.PhotoSettings.CroppedSizeInPixels = new Size(200, 200);
StorageFile photo = await captureUI.CaptureFileAsync(CameraCaptureUIMode.Photo);
if (photo == null)
// User cancelled photo capture
//return the captured results to fram via bitmap
IRandomAccessStream stream = await photo.OpenAsync(FileAccessMode.Read);
BitmapDecoder decoder = await BitmapDecoder.CreateAsync(stream);
SoftwareBitmap softwareBitmap = await decoder.GetSoftwareBitmapAsync();
SoftwareBitmap softwareBitmapBGR8 = SoftwareBitmap.Convert(softwareBitmap,BitmapPixelFormat.Bgra8, BitmapAlphaMode.Premultiplied);
SoftwareBitmapSource bitmapSource = new SoftwareBitmapSource();
await bitmapSource.SetBitmapAsync(softwareBitmapBGR8);
imageControl.Source = bitmapSource;

Saving image in database is not a good practice. How about trying Azure Storage to save your image ? And store the URL in database ?
