How to create bitmap from byte array?

I searched all question about byte array but i always failed. I have never coded c# i am new in this side. Could you help me how to make image file from byte array.

Here is my function which stores byte in array named

imageData


public void imageReady( byte[] imageData, int fWidth, int fHeight))

Answer

Guys thank you for your help. I think all of this answers works. However i think my byte array contains raw bytes. That's why all of those solutions didnt work for my code.

However i found a solution. Maybe this solution helps other coders who have problem like mine.

static byte[] PadLines(byte[] bytes, int rows, int columns) {
   int currentStride = columns; // 3
   int newStride = columns;  // 4
   byte[] newBytes = new byte[newStride * rows];
   for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++)
       Buffer.BlockCopy(bytes, currentStride * i, newBytes, newStride * i, currentStride);
   return newBytes;
 }

 int columns = imageWidth;
 int rows = imageHeight;
 int stride = columns;
 byte[] newbytes = PadLines(imageData, rows, columns);

 Bitmap im = new Bitmap(columns, rows, stride, 
          PixelFormat.Format8bppIndexed, 
          Marshal.UnsafeAddrOfPinnedArrayElement(newbytes, 0));

 im.Save("C:\\Users\\musa\\Documents\\Hobby\\image21.bmp");

This solutions works for 8bit 256 bpp (Format8bppIndexed). If your image has another format you should change PixelFormat .

And there is a problem with colors right now. As soon as i solved this one i will edit my answer for other users.

*PS = I am not sure about stride value but for 8bit it should be equal to columns.

And also this function Works for me.. This function copies 8 bit greyscale image into a 32bit layout.

public void SaveBitmap(string fileName, int width, int height, byte[] imageData)
        {

            byte[] data = new byte[width * height * 4];

            int o = 0;

            for (int i = 0; i < width * height; i++)
            {
                byte value = imageData[i];


                data[o++] = value;
                data[o++] = value;
                data[o++] = value;
                data[o++] = 0; 
            }

            unsafe
            {
                fixed (byte* ptr = data)
                {

                    using (Bitmap image = new Bitmap(width, height, width * 4,
                                PixelFormat.Format32bppRgb, new IntPtr(ptr)))
                    {

                        image.Save(Path.ChangeExtension(fileName, ".jpg"));
                    }
                }
            }
        }
