            <asp:Image ID="ImagePreview" runat="server" Height="97px" Width="99px"
            style="z-index: 1"/>

              style="z-index: 1; left:100px; top: 53px; position: absolute; height: 46px; width: 218px; right: 90px;" />
           <asp:Button ID="Button7" runat="server" CausesValidation="False"
            onclick="Showbutton_Click"

Input (File) is an HTML control, so you will need to run it as a server control and then validate it on the code-behind. If you don't want to set it a server control, you can validate it using JavaScript/jQuery in the client-side.
For instance,
var fileUpload = $("*[id$='fileUpload ']").val();
if(fileUpload == ""){
//Do your validation here
}

Required filed validator wont work
check whether it has file or not using
FileUpload1.HasFile

or
!(FileUpload1.PostedFile.ContentLength>0)
