I need to process the image during the postback. The image file is stored on the website (URL path). However, when I coded the path in URL, the compiler complains. However, I really cannot specify the absolute file path in the file system. You just don't klnow where is the file (web farming).
How do I resolve this delima?

URI formats are not supported

code:
string WorkingDirectory = "http://localhost/MySite/images/site";
System.Drawing.Image imgPhoto = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(WorkingDirectory + "/DefaultBkg.jpg");

try

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MySite\images\site

instead of

http://localhost/MySite/images/site

I know you can always use the file system path. But in the production environment, how do you know the absolute file system path?

       string path = Server.MapPath(" ~/images/" + image);

       System.Drawing.Image im = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(path);
