  • I suggest you get rid of the try/catch so you can see exactly what the error is.

    You aren't showing us what "image" and "photo" are.  Is it possible "image" is an uninitialized object?

  • Hi

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, you want to make your import image button work.

    You could try the following change.


    photo= dialog.SafeFileName;
    image.Image = Image.FromFile(dialog.SafeFileName);


    photo = dialog.FileName;
    image.Image = Image.FromFile(photo);
