Hi, I'm working on a windows store application, I'm selecting an image using FileOpenPicker and editing the image using an API, I'm displaying the edited image on a new image control. How do i save this image to the disk?

Hello Ravindra,
To save an image to IsolatedStorage from a PhotoChooserTask, use this (the e object in the task callback holds the stream.
public static void SaveImage(Stream imageStream, string fileName, int orientation, int quality)
    using (var isolatedStorage = IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForApplication())
        if (isolatedStorage.FileExists(fileName))

        IsolatedStorageFileStream fileStream = isolatedStorage.CreateFile(fileName);
        BitmapImage bitmap = new BitmapImage();

        WriteableBitmap wb = new WriteableBitmap(bitmap);
        wb.SaveJpeg(fileStream, wb.PixelWidth, wb.PixelHeight, orientation, quality);
