            {
                int @id = ID;
                string conString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["Manager"].ToString();
                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(conString);
                SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("spx_MsgUploadFiles_Pull", conn);
                da.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

                da.Fill(ds, "read");
                conn.Close();
                //storing the file in byte array 
                byte[] MyData = new byte[0];
                DataRow myRow;
                myRow = ds.Tables["read"].Rows[0];
                MyData = (byte[])myRow["Document_File"];
                string name = myRow["filename"].ToString();
                int ArraySize = new int();
                ArraySize = MyData.GetUpperBound(0);
                if (ArraySize > -1)
                {

                    string temp = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["AppfileLogRootPath"];
                    string path = temp + name;
                    File.WriteAllBytes(path, MyData);

Save doesn't return value so u cannot assign it to image, that should be separately:

  using (System.IO.FileStream fs = new System.IO.FileStream(path, System.IO.FileMode.Open)){
//save the image as png in path
                        Image.FromStream(fs).Save(path, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png); 

}

pbImage.Image  = Image.FromFile(path);//the png image

You can use System.Drawing.Bitmap

                        ImgOperations _ImgOperations = new ImgOperations();
                        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(byteArrayIn);
                        System.Drawing.Bitmap _TestBitmap = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(ms);
                        _TestBitmap.SetResolution(72, 72);
                        _TestBitmap.Save(filename,ImageFormat.Png);
                        _TestBitmap.Dispose();
                        ms.Dispose();
