How could I generate many mulitpage TIFF images using C# by appending them into 1 file?

I use the following code to create a multipage TIFF image.

It works fine for the creation of 1 multipage TIFF image.

Could you show me how I can modify this code so that everytime I call the MergeTwoImages function and pass it a new set of 2 more images (firstimage and secondimage), that they are appended to the outputImage?

I would like to create many multipage TIFF images into 1 file.

---------------

Byte[] img = bytes.Skip(irecpositionrevised + irectypelength).Take(intpos1revised).ToArray();

Byte[] img1 = bytes.Skip(irecpositionrevised + irectypelength + intpos1revised).Take(intpos2revised).ToArray();

System.Drawing.Bitmap newImage = MergeTwoImages(ConvertFromByteArray(img), ConvertFromByteArray(img1));

newImage.Save("L:\\F\\S\C\\S\\test.tiff");

        private static Image ConvertFromByteArray(byte[] input)
        {
            using (var ms = new MemoryStream(input))
            {
                return Image.FromStream(ms);
            }
        }

        public static Bitmap MergeTwoImages(Image firstImage, Image secondImage)
        {
            if (firstImage == null)
            {
                throw new ArgumentNullException("firstImage");
            }

            if (secondImage == null)
            {
                throw new ArgumentNullException("secondImage");
            }

            int outputImageWidth = firstImage.Width > secondImage.Width ? firstImage.Width : secondImage.Width;

            int outputImageHeight = firstImage.Height + secondImage.Height + 1;

            Bitmap outputImage = new Bitmap(outputImageWidth, outputImageHeight, System.Drawing.Imaging.PixelFormat.Format32bppArgb);

            using (Graphics graphics = Graphics.FromImage(outputImage))
            {
                graphics.DrawImage(firstImage, new Rectangle(new Point(), firstImage.Size),
                    new Rectangle(new Point(), firstImage.Size), GraphicsUnit.Pixel);
                graphics.DrawImage(secondImage, new Rectangle(new Point(0, firstImage.Height + 1), secondImage.Size),
                    new Rectangle(new Point(), secondImage.Size), GraphicsUnit.Pixel);
            }

            return outputImage;
        }

Hi,

This is just a sample for you to see how it should work. I will use only one image and append to the same image on the bottom 3 times, so the result will be 4 times the initial image one on the bottom of the other.:

//I am loading the same image into two objects
Image img = ConvertFromByteArray(bytes.Skip(irecpositionrevised + irectypelength).Take(intpos1revised).ToArray());
Image img1 = ConvertFromByteArray(bytes.Skip(irecpositionrevised + irectypelength).Take(intpos1revised).ToArray());
//I am merging the second image to the first and save the output to the first
//Each time this runs, the first object is increased by an img1
for(var i=1;i<3;i++)
{
    img = MergeTwoImages(img,img1)
}
