Hello

I am saving jpeg-files in an xml-file. Then I read the data of the jpeg-file into a string, how can I now load it into a picturebox without saving it to a jpeg-file and loa it from there?

Thanks

Here is a class for memory image conversions:

Imports System.IO
Imports System.Drawing.Imaging

Public Class MemoryImage

  Public Shared Function ByteArrayToImage(ByVal buffer() As Byte, ByVal fileName As String) As Image

    Dim ms As New MemoryStream(buffer)
    Dim img As Image = Image.FromStream(ms)
    Return img

  End Function

  Public Shared Function ImageToByteArray(ByVal img As Image, ByVal format As ImageFormat) As Byte()

    Dim ms As New MemoryStream
    img.Save(ms, format)

    Return ms.ToArray()

  End Function

End Class
