How To: Convert Image to String Using C#

the easy way to convert any image to string is :

1- Convert Image to Memory Stream.
2- Convert Memory Stream to Base64String.

so in this sample code I will convert the image to string and I'll save this string in text file.

private string ConvertImage(Bitmap sBit)
{
MemoryStream imageStream = new MemoryStream();
sBit.Save(imageStream, ImageFormat.Jpeg);

return Convert.ToBase64String(imageStream.ToArray());
}

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Bitmap sBit = new Bitmap(@"C:\bmw.jpg");
string imageString = ConvertImage(sBit);

StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(@"C:\waleedelkot.text", false);
sw.Write(imageString);
sw.Close();
}
