What I have tried:

For Example suppose that we have an image below

t —[^]

convert image to ascii string and save as txt.I want to do reverse process.I read ascii text and convert to an original image but It is not fully formed.Like this.Where is my error

Your error is in the conversion process. ASCII.ToString does not convert binary data into text - it creates a string that contains binary data. For that, you need an encoding algorithm such as UUEncode or Base64.

The Convert class has simple Base64 conversion methods. So once you have your byte array from the image, perform
string text = Convert.ToBase64String(data)

and to go the other way
byte[] data = Convert.FromBase64String(text)

You can then read/write the file with ASCII encoding by opening a StreamReader or StreamWriter with the Encoding.ASCII parameter.

if ı use Base64String text file size bigger than image file.I want text size and image size equal

You can't do that, unless you perform some sort of compression (in which case, the file is no longer text). The problem is that there are 256 possible byte characters, but only 96 ASCII text characters. To make the file sizes equal, you need to use binary characters, which is the image itself.

I thought I can do compression for image like this but I am confused now.How to compress bitmap file with huffman and rle said "To make the file sizes equal, you need to use binary characters, which is the image itself." how can ı do that can you help me or can you send me code
Midi_Mick 30-Nov-16 5:02am    
Yes - just forget about trying to convert to text - read the image data as a byte array, and save it to disk as that byte array unchanged.
If you want to apply huffman or rle compression, forget about text altogether and look up the algorithms (google "huffman image compression c#"). Apply them to your byte array before you save it. Then decompress using the appropriate algorithm when you read the data back.

So ı dont find a source code for hfufman for image everywhere text.
For image can ı compress rgb code ?
