    The Bitmap class has a save method, an overload of which will take a stream.  Use a memory stream, then you can get the bitmap bytes out of there to write to your DB.


    You reverse that process to recreate a bitmap from a byte stream from the DB.


    It's often better to write images to the file system and store paths in your DB, especially if it's a web app and you want to show the images later.
