Hi Tulasiram!

I found this interesting link:

The site has a link to a downloadable project file. You should check that out as it seems to do exactly what you're looking for.

whats odd is I get answer accepted and a 1 vote! wtf? :)
Manfred Rudolf Bihy 20-Nov-10 6:50am    
That wasn't me, I had a similar thing happen to me before. The answer was accepted but the vote was one. Go figure. Then again I got a couple of accepted answers with not vote at all. (You can have a five from me, if that makes your day a little brighter ;) )
See here[^].

Hi Abinav, looks like I beat you by only two minutes ;) .

You'll get it next time :).

What I find a little strange is, I posted first and linked to the very same page as you, yet I didn't get a 5 vote. Whoever is doing this kind of crap?

The best I can do is give you my 5 vote.
First, create you folder...
private string GetTempDirectory()
    string path = Path.GetRandomFileName();
    Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath(), path);
    return path;

This will create the directory, but not a file to go in.
You save copies of the images to this directory.

Once finished with them, then delete the directory.


Hope that helps.

Thanks Dave, for helping him with the temporary folder stuff. Why didn't I think of that ;) ?
