Hi all,

Try this example to Display image Thumbnail from Database in GridView and Display Enlarged Popup in ASP.Net

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.ui/1.8.23/jquery-ui.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.ui/1.8.9/themes/Blitzer/jquery-ui.css"
rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
$('[id*=imgThumbnail]').bind('click', function () {
// $("#divImage").show();
$("[id*=imgBigImage]").attr('src', $(this).attr('alt'));
title: "Image",
modal: true,
resizable: false,
buttons: {
Close: function () {
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" OnRowDataBound="GridView1_OnRowDataBound">
<asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="File Path">
<asp:Image ID="imgThumbnail" AlternateText='<%# Eval("FilePath") %>' runat="server" />
<div id="divImage" style="display: none;">
<asp:Image ID="imgBigImage" runat="server" Width="300" Height="300" />

In Code behind :

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt.Rows.Add("Jellyfish", "Images/Jellyfish.jpg");
dt.Rows.Add("Koala", "Images/Koala.jpg");
dt.Rows.Add("Penguins", "Images/Penguins.jpg");
dt.Rows.Add("Tulips", "Images/Tulips.jpg");
this.GridView1.DataSource = dt;

protected void GridView1_OnRowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image img = e.Row.FindControl("imgThumbnail") as System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image;
string path = Server.MapPath(img.AlternateText);
img.ImageUrl = GenerateThumbnail(path);

private string GenerateThumbnail(string path)
System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(path);
using (System.Drawing.Image thumbnail = image.GetThumbnailImage(100, 100, new System.Drawing.Image.GetThumbnailImageAbort(ThumbnailCallback), IntPtr.Zero))
using (MemoryStream memoryStream = new MemoryStream())
thumbnail.Save(memoryStream, ImageFormat.Png);
Byte[] bytes = new Byte[memoryStream.Length];
memoryStream.Position = 0;
memoryStream.Read(bytes, 0, (int)bytes.Length);
string base64String = Convert.ToBase64String(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);
return "data:image/png;base64," + base64String;

public bool ThumbnailCallback()
return false;

Hope this helps

Good Luck
