“Out of Memory” exception while compressing images in plugin

Posted on by


Due to some business requirements, we wanted that whenever an image is attached to the Note it gets compressed to a certain size. So, we developed plugin in order to compress the images while attaching to the Notes.

We retrieved the “documentbody” which return the base64String which we are trying to create image using the FromStream() as shown in below screenshot of code,


But suddenly the above code stops working for PNG type images only in the dynamics CRM as we are getting “Out of Memory” exception on the “Image.FromStream(ms, false);” line.

Note: we tried by adding the third parameter in the FromStream() i.e. “validateImageData” to “False” but this is also causing with the same “Out of Memory” issue on the “graphics.DrawImage(image, 0, 0, newWidth, newHeight);” line.

Can anyone shed light on how to resolve this “Out of Memory” issue?
