How do I modify the following code to rather save the image as an image file on my hard drive

             Dim oID As String = D.Rows(r).Cells(1).Value
                                Dim sSQL As String = "Select Photo from Photos where ID = " & oID & ""
                                Dim cmd2 As New SqlCommand(sSQL, con)
                                Dim ImgStream As New IO.MemoryStream(CType(cmd2.ExecuteScalar, Byte()))
                                PictureBox1.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ImgStream)

Hi murbro;

This should work for you.

'' Where locationToSaveTo is a string with the path and filename on the disk.
System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes(locationToSaveTo, CType(cmd2.ExecuteScalar, Byte()));
