how to load image with relative path in bitmap

i want to upload image int the bitmap object from, the image is location under


whenever i use below code to load image in bitmap, i gets error saying Parameter not valid.

Bitmap b = new Bitmap("/uploadedimages/sampleimage.jpg") // this path is coming from database holded in variable

i tried to replace the slashes in path to "\" still that does not work.

can anyone tell me what could be the reason for the error and the possible resolution.


if uploadedimages directory is in your App_Data folder then you should append the App_Data absolute path to your path:

Bitmap b = new Bitmap(Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data"), "/uploadedimages/sampleimage.jpg"));
