Javascript Question

angularJS make binary data image from base64 and send as image file to server

I'm using this tool to crop images in my AngularJS app:

and then I try to store data to server, but now I send base64 code... How could I send normal cropped image binary code, not as base64? is it real?

my code for uploading is such:

var addImage = function(files) {
var deferred = $q.defer();
var fd = new FormData();

var blob = new Blob([files], { type : "image/png"});
fd.append("file", blob);

$ + "/files", fd, {
withCredentials: true,
headers: {
'Content-Type': undefined
transformRequest: angular.identity
.success(function(data, status, headers, config) {
url = data.Url;
.error(function(err, status) {

return deferred.promise;

and here I send base64 code:

$scope.photoChanged = function(files) {
$scope.oldImg = angular.element(document.querySelector('#avatar-id'));
$scope.files = files;
var reader = new FileReader();
reader.onload = function(e) {
$scope.imagecontent =;


$scope.setCroppedData = function(data) {
$('#avatar-id').attr('src', data);
$scope.nImg = new Image();
$scope.nImg.src = data; // data - is base64 image code
uploaderService.addImage($scope.nImg.src).then(function(url) {
$scope.person.AvatarUrl = url;

how could I send like I do without any croping: send image file, so that i could go via link in browser and see image, but not a byte64 code???


You can wrap the base64 data in ArrayBuffer then convert to binary Image data like:

var binaryImg = atob(base64Image);
var length = binaryImg.length;
var arrayBuffer = new ArrayBuffer(length);
var uintArray = new Uint8Array(arrayBuffer);
for (var i = 0; i < length; i++) {
    uintArray[i] = binaryImg.charCodeAt(i);

I suppose uintArray is what you want.
