What is the best way to display an image in an ASP.Net website from image data stored in a varbinary(max) type SQL Server database column? The images are imported from a third-party source but without any indication of the original file type. The file type will have been restricted however to mainly JPEG, GIF and BMP.  I have tried a couple of methods based on web search results but without any success so far.
