using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using System.Configuration;
using CloudinaryDotNet;
using CloudinaryDotNet.Actions;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
using System.Drawing;

namespace DemoCloudinary.Controllers
    public class CloudinaryController : Controller
        // GET: Cloudinary
        public ActionResult ImageUpload()
            return View();

        public bool SaveImageToServer()
                HttpFileCollectionBase files = Request.Files;
                HttpPostedFileBase file = files[0];
                string _apiKey = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["CloudinaryAPIKey"];
                string _apiSecret = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["CloudinarySecretKey"];
                string _cloud = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["CloudinaryAccount"];
                string uploadedImageUrl = string.Empty;
                string fname = string.Empty;
                var myAccount = new Account { ApiKey = _apiKey, ApiSecret = _apiSecret, Cloud = _cloud };
                Cloudinary _cloudinary = new Cloudinary(myAccount);

                // Checking for Internet Explorer  
                if (Request.Browser.Browser.ToUpper() == "IE" || Request.Browser.Browser.ToUpper() == "INTERNETEXPLORER")
                    string[] testfiles = file.FileName.Split(new char[] { '\\' });
                    fname = testfiles[testfiles.Length - 1];
                    fname = Regex.Replace(file.FileName.Trim(), @"[^0-9a-zA-Z.]+", "_");

                using (Image img = Image.FromStream(file.InputStream))
                    int imageHeight = 0;
                    int imageWidth = 0;
                    if (img.Height > 320)
                        var ratio = (double)img.Height / 320;
                        imageHeight = (int)(img.Height / ratio);
                        imageWidth = (int)(img.Width / ratio);
                        imageHeight = img.Height;
                        imageWidth = img.Width;
                    var uploadParams = new ImageUploadParams()
                        File = new FileDescription(file.FileName, file.InputStream),
                        Folder = "MyImages",
                        Transformation = new Transformation().Width(imageWidth).Height(imageHeight).Crop("thumb").Gravity("face")

                    var uploadResult = _cloudinary.UploadLarge(uploadParams);
                    uploadedImageUrl = uploadResult?.SecureUri?.AbsoluteUri;
                    return true;
            catch (Exception ex)
                return false;


Step 12: The Source Code Of The Design Page Is Given Below.

    ViewBag.Title = "ImageUpload";

<br />
<br />
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>

    <div class="container">
        <div class="form-group">
            <label for="email">Images Upload:</label>
            <input type="file" class="form-control" id="filePhoto" placeholder="Upload File" name="File">
            <label id="ShowMsg"></label>
        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-default" id="btnSubmit">Submit</button>


Step 13: Here Is The Jquery Code After Click The Submit Button.

<script type="text/javascript">

    $("#btnSubmit").click(function () {
        var fileUpload = $("#filePhoto").get(0);
        var files = fileUpload.files;
        // Create FormData object
        var fileData = new FormData();
        // Looping over all files and add it to FormData object
        for (var i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
            fileData.append(files[i].name, files[i]);
        var geturl = "Cloudinary/SaveImageToServer";
            url: geturl,
            type: "POST",
            data: fileData,
            async: false,
            contentType: false, // Not to set any content header
            processData: false, // Not to process data
            success: function (IsImageUploaded) {
                if (IsImageUploaded == "True") {
                    $("#ShowMsg").text("Image Uploaded Successfully...!").css("color", "green")
                else {
                    $("#ShowMsg").text("Image Not Uploaded...!").css("color", "red")


step 10: Let’s See The Demo
