Given the path to the image:

pixtools_mod1.tif

Is it possible to get a reprentation of the .TIF as a byte array  (byte[ ]) ?

byte[] annotationImage;

annotationImage = foo.GetByteArray("pixtools_mod1.tif");


...something like that?

Please provide possible source code for the method GetByteArray(string pathToImage);


I will be looking for the answer as well.  :)


Thank you,

Tom

Try something like this:
            string FileName = "pixtools_mod1.tif";
            Image img = Image.FromFile(FileName);
            System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
            img.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Tiff);
            img.Dispose();
            byte[] annotationImage = ms.ToArray();
            ms.Dispose();
