Return thumbnail image from ASP.NET MVC action method

To return thumbnail image from ASP.NET MVC action method, Follow below approach.

Controller code

public FileResult GetThumbnail(string fileName)
var path = Server.MapPath(fileName);
var stream = new MemoryStream();
var exteName = Path.GetExtension(path);

using (Image image = Image.FromFile(path))
using (Image thumb = image.GetThumbnailImage(120, 120, () => false, IntPtr.Zero))
thumb.Save(stream, ImageFormat.Png);
return File(stream.ToArray(), "image/" + exteName.Substring(1));

Above code will generate a thumbnail image of 120*120 based the file name passed.
View code

<img class="img-thumbnail" src="/Home/GetThumbnail/?fileName=/images/asb.jpg" alt="" />

When the <img> tag renders it calls /Home/GetThumbnail action method that generates the thumbnail from the fileName value and return an stream of array that shows the image of 120*120.
