I am able to upload an image to a SQL Server Database using C#, However, I am unable to read the image from the database and display it in an img element.  I am using ASP.NET 2.0.

Thank you for you help.

You need to create a page to read the image data from the DB, then use that page as the source for your image.  http://www.codeproject.com/KB/asp/Display_Images_from_Data.aspx

Is the same true for ASP.NET, the link has some good information, however, it references ASP only.

Thank you

The procedure is the same in .NET, just translate the code from ASP/VBScript to .NET/C#.  Here's a page with C# code samples: http://www.aspfree.com/c/a/ASP.NET/Retrieving-Images-from-a-Database--C---Part-II/
