Using Saveas() method for Ajax asyncupload using VB.NET

I am having trouble to find a VB.NET tutorial on how to use the SaveAs() method for the Ajax AsyncUpload control.

What I need to do when the upload is complete is:
  - I have to either pass a parameter or access a session variable (call the variable "pictype")
  - I need to validate what type the file is ("picformat" - ex: GIF or JPG)
  - I need to validate the width of the image, and rescale it to no more than 150px wide
  - I  need to save the image as a new file name which includes the session variable and fileformat (ex: filename = "pic" & session("pictype") & "01" & "." & picformat  

I need help with these points in my subroutine.

Thanks, Peter

Although this is in C (not VB), I think I can figure out the SaveAs() functionality from this. Thank you.

Do you have any idea how to address the other points in my message (filetype ? picture width ?)

Thanks, Peter

OK, your last post didn't help ,e out that much, but I have bridged the gap between your inputs and a final solution. Please find attached my final solution.
Sub RescaleImage(ImageFilename as String)
    Nx = 150 ' max width for large thumbnail
    Ny = 150 ' max height for large thumbnail
        
    ' Load the Image
    Dim originalimg As System.Drawing.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(trim(ImageFilename)) 

    ' Work out the width/height for the thumbnail. Preserve aspect ratio and honour max width/height
    ' Note: if the original is smaller than the thumbnail size it will be scaled up
        
    If originalimg.Width <> Nx then

        ' Need to rescale image
        
        Try
            If (originalimg.Width / Nx) > (originalimg.Width / Ny) Then
                N2 = originalimg.Width
                newWidth = Nx
                newHeight = originalimg.Height * (Nx / N2)
                If newHeight > Ny Then
                    newWidth = newWidth * (Ny / newHeight)
                    newHeight = Ny
                End If
            Else
                N2 = originalimg.Height
                newHeight = Ny
                newWidth = originalimg.Width * (Ny / N2)
                If newWidth > Nx Then
                    newHeight = newHeight * (Nx / newWidth)
                    newWidth = Nx
                End If
            End If

            ' Re-draw the image to the specified height and width
            gr_dest.DrawImage(originalimg, 0, 0, thumb.Width, thumb.Height)
