How would you save an image array to a file in C#?

I created an image array as follows in C# using VS2010:

Image[] newImage = new Image[1000];

How can I save this image array to a file titled "L:\\F\\Source\\test1.tiff"

I don't know what you are doing because you have an array of images limited to 1000

You can save all the images in the array with :

foreach ( Image image in newImage )
{
   image.Save("L:\\F\\Source\\test1.tiff", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Tiff);
}

However this is not intended or is it.

Assuming that you meant that you have a byte array that you want to write to disk:
using System.Drawing;
using System.IO;

namespace EE_Q28711066
{
	class Program
	{
		static void Main(string[] args)
		{
			byte[] array = new byte[1000];
			using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(array))
			{
				Image image = Image.FromStream(ms);
				image.Save("EE_Q28711066.TIFF", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Tiff);
			}
		}
	}
}

Open in new window

Otherwise, if you do in fact have an image array (that is an array of images), then you would either.  Write each image to it's own file (using the method above) or combine the images into one file.

Since you picked a .tiff, I'm guessing you're actually talking about creating a multi-frame tiff file, one frame for each source image in the array.  A lot more complicated than normal image saving, but not too bad.
You need to use the image encoding variables in System.Drawing.Imaging.

This should get you most of the way:

.net 2, but still does the trick.
