I want to save image path in the database, I am using string type image not save in folder but image name also saved in the database. I am using string so SaveAs giving an error.

why I am using string? because when I am using public httppostfilebase image file {get;set;} show null value in controller .

imagePath: this variable contains string bytes image file: this variable contains the name of the image

I am not getting any error but the problem in the last line of code how to save in a folder. i am using string but SaveAs not working save as work only Httppostfilebase. in this scenario How to save 

Any expert here to resolve my issue, and tell me what is the problem in my code.

What I have tried:


public string imagePath { get;set; }
public string imageFile { get;set; }

byte[] data = Convert.FromBase64String(Quot[i].imageFile.Replace("data:image/jpeg;base64,", ""));

Image img;
MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(data, 0, data.Length);
ms.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
img = Image.FromStream(ms, true);

string fileName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(Quot[i].imagePath);
string extension = Path.GetExtension(Quot[i].imagePath);
fileName = fileName + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy") + extension;
Quot[i].imagePath = "~/AppFiles/Images/" + fileName;
fileName = Path.Combine(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/AppFiles/Images/"), fileName);

See below for how to convert the base64 string into an image

Put your code into a try/catch block and evaluate any exception that might be thrown. My guess is that maybe the AppFiles\Images path does not exist, or that the filename is somehow invalid, or maybe that it already exists in the specified path. Some exception handling on your part will either show you the problem, or eliminate the file system as the problem.

"Save as not working" doesn't tell us ANYTHING. I repeat - put a try/catch block around your code.

Sir, I am sorry but your guess is totally wrong, I think you didn't get my point what I am saying.
