What are you trying to do?   WriteableBitmap was designed for images that are rapidly changing.   To save a copy of whatever is in the WriteableBitmap at any point in time, you'd perform a freeze operation (to lock it down) and then you can access the BackBuffer property.

I am providing a canvas in silverlight in which the uesr can draw free hand images. When the hit save button i am able to get the image they have drawn in form of WritableBitmap.

Can you provide some code snippets for freezing and accessing the BackBuffer.

Thanks
