I'm trying to return an image from WCF to a web application, and kept received this error message: The content type image/jpeg of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly.

The web application page calls the WCF to return an image:
srQRCode.QRCodeClient qrCode = new srQRCode.QRCodeClient();
Stream image = qrCode.GetImage();

WCF qrCode.cs
[WebInvoke(Method = "GET")]
Stream GetImage();

public Stream GetImage()
           int width = 300;
           int height = 300;
           Bitmap bitmap = new Bitmap(width, height);
           for (int i = 0; i < bitmap.Width; i++)
               for (int j = 0; j < bitmap.Height; j++)
                   bitmap.SetPixel(i, j, (Math.Abs(i - j) < 2) ? Color.Blue : Color.Yellow);
           MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

           bitmap.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
           ms.Position = 0;
           WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingRequest.Headers.Add("Slug", "title");
           WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingRequest.Method = "GET";
           WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "image/jpeg";

           return ms;

This[^] is the best way to research specific error messages.

I checked the error message but could not find the solution for the problem.
why not you using image handler class (.ashx file)
I'm doing the same thing with QR code and it doesn't work me, can you send me the code if you did it, this is my mail thanks :D
