Uploading Image to db and resizing

I'm using this code in a page to upload an image to a Sql2000 database.  Everything is working as I have it, but I want to automatically resize the image height and width before it gets uploaded to the db.  I don't really care about file size, just dimensions.  I can't find any way to check the width or height of the file that is being uploaded.  

aspx page:
<input id="browse" type="file" runat="server" NAME="browse"><asp:button id="btnNewPhoto" runat="server" Text="Change Photo" Visible="False" />

code behind:

Stream imgStream = browse.PostedFile.InputStream;
int imgLen = browse.PostedFile.ContentLength;
string imgContentType = browse.PostedFile.ContentType;
byte[] imgBinaryData = new byte[imgLen];
int n = imgStream.Read(imgBinaryData,0,imgLen);

.
.
Lines Omitted for clarity
.
.

SqlParameter parmPhoto = cmd.Parameters.Add("@photo", SqlDbType.Image);
parmPhoto.Value = imgBinaryData;

SqlParameter parmPhotoType = cmd.Parameters.Add("@photoType",SqlDbType.NVarChar, 50);
parmPhotoType.Value = imgContentType;




Thank you for viewing,

Sorry, bad typing, should have just cut and paste.

RectangleF r = img.GetBounds(GraphicsUnit.Pixel);

need to use full namespace because Image belongs to more than one namespace, hence ambigutiy error

To get the image size load the stream nto an image object

 System.Drawing.Image  img = Image.FromStream(imgStream)
 RectangleF r = GetBounds(GraphicsUnit.Pixel);

float h = r.Height;
float w = r.Width;

That looks like it should work, but the code just doesn't compile.  It doesnt like GetBounds and it throws an 'ambiguoous' error on the Image.FromStream.

I got it to work like this:

System.Drawing.Image img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(imgStream);

I don't know why I have to specify System.Drawing beacuse I'm 'using' it at the top of the page.

It still doesn't like the GetBounds.  I can't even get to that in msdn if i use the C# filter.

I got it working using this:

System.Drawing.Image img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(imgStream);
                  int w = img.Width;
                  int h = img.Height;

and an if statement to check for my bounds.  You were close enough though, thanks for the help.
