    Hello guys, I try to save data with pictures and without pictures but I do not know where the mistake He gives me this


    here is code for controller 

     public ActionResult Scan()
                string ScanData;
                // blob(image) coming in
                using (Stream receiveStream = Request.InputStream)
                    using (StreamReader readStream = new StreamReader(receiveStream, Encoding.UTF8))
                        // Reading blob(image)
                        ScanData = readStream.ReadToEnd();
                // Removing extras from blob(image)
                byte[] Data = Convert.FromBase64String(ScanData.Replace("data:;base64,", string.Empty).Replace("data:application/octet-stream;base64,", string.Empty));
                //blob(image) Temporary held until the rest of data comes in to "Create" method.
                TempData["ScannedImage"] = Data;
                //System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes("FileName.png", Data); // save scanned images to files.
                return null; // return nothing, the rest of the data will be processed in the "Create" method.

    and this a create action

            public async Task<ActionResult> Create(Inbox model/*,IEnumerable<HttpPostedFileBase>File*/)
                var currentUser = await manager.FindByIdAsync(User.Identity.GetUserId());
                if (ModelState.IsValid)
                    model.User = currentUser;  
                    var max = new Inbox();
                    max.File = TempData["ScannedImage"] as byte[];//from "Scan" method, converted back to byte[]
                    max.NameWared = model.NameWared;
                    string url = Url.Action("List");
                    return Json(new { success = true, url = url });
                return View(model);

    and this is my model

    namespace Arcive_project.Models
        public class Inbox
            public int InboxId { get; set; }
            public string WaridNO { get; set; }
            public string NameWared { get; set; }
    public byte[] File { get; set; }
    [NotMapped] // Won't be mapped to db, only used to show images on page. public string image { get; set; } } }

     I need some help guys

    The string is not a valid Base64 string.   Refactor your code a bit so you can see the results of the Replace() methods.

    string temp = ScanData.Replace("data:;base64,", string.Empty);
    temp = temp.Replace("data:application/octet-stream;base64,", string.Empty);
    byte[] Data = Convert.FromBase64String(temp);
    • What is the value of ScanData?
    • What is the value after the first Replace()?
    • What is the value after the second Replace()?

    Saving images in database is a wrong approach. 

    You basically store images on some directory of the server and store only the image path on the database.

    mas mas

    byte[] Data = Convert.FromBase64String(ScanData.Replace("data:;base64,", string.Empty).Replace("data:application/octet-stream;base64,", string.Empty));

    If you have to replace data like above looks like image is coming from an http stream where image is inline.
    If yes the "data:;base64," should include media type like "data:image/gif;base64," or "data:image/jpeg;base64,"

    As already pointed split your string and check values in debug mode
