I have array of bytes for an image that i want to send it using query string
First I convert the bytes to string using :
 MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
Image img = Image.FromFile(@"C:\Hydrangeas.jpg");
img.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

then send ms.ToArray() in query string but the problem is that the query string is too long and it doesn't work !!!

By the way it's sending to click-once application using URL.

Is there a way to minify the sent string
is there a another way to send array of bytes using querystring

Any one can help ?

Don't. Find a different solution.

The problem is that the max length of a query string is not large, but it also isn't defined. IE has a maximum length of the entire URL + Query string of 2,083 characters[^] and that is characters, not bytes - since the URL and querystring are supposed to be human readable, you are looking at a lot less actual bytes than that!

The fact that you have to ask the question indicates that you have made a very wrong decision somewhere, and you need to go back and re-think your design a little. I can't suggest a "better way" because I have no idea why you think this is necessary in the first place!

Can you convert the bytes to a base64 string and try?
