I should probably leave this to the admins, but please note that solutions are supposed to be posted right here on Experts Exchange - that way they can help more than one person.

You might want to be specific about the type of database you are using (do you mean SQLServer database?)

The page that handles the file upload post can get the InputStream for each file from the Request.Files object.

A method like this will take the inputStream and generate a byte array that contains the thumbnail data. It's then a simple matter of inserting the binary data into your database
    private byte[] GetThumbBytes(Stream inputStream, Size maxSize) {

      Bitmap original = new Bitmap(inputStream);

      double scale = Math.Min(maxSize.Width / original.Width, maxSize.Height, original.Height);

      Bitmap thumb = new Bitmap(original, (int)(scale * original.Width), (int)(scale * original.Height));
 

      // Save the thumb to a memorystream

      MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

      thumb.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

      byte[] buff = ms.ToArray();
 

      original.Dispose();

      thumb.Dispose();

      ms.Dispose();
 

      return buff;

    }

Minor mistake, the scale is calcualated incorrectly. The numerators have to be cast as double, else scale ends up being to the nearest integer which isn't ideal.
    private byte[] GetThumbBytes(Stream inputStream, Size maxSize) {

      Bitmap original = new Bitmap(inputStream);

      double scale = Math.Min((double)maxSize.Width / original.Width, (double)maxSize.Height / original.Height);

      Bitmap thumb = new Bitmap(original, (int)(scale * original.Width), (int)(scale * original.Height));

 

      // Save the thumb to a memorystream

      MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

      thumb.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

      byte[] buff = ms.ToArray();

 

      original.Dispose();

      thumb.Dispose();

      ms.Dispose();

 

      return buff;

    }
