  1. Right click the project name
  2. Add reference -> .net tab and then choose system.windows.forms namespace then press ok button.
  3. In .aspx code behind file you have to import the System.Windows.Forms namespace and that’s it.

Create a folder and give folder path in c# code just like above i have given. You can customize the code as well and give the dynamic name of bitmap file every time it is generated.
