I know that there are a small amount of similar questions but I have get a problem with the found suggestions.

I tried this:

Image tmpimg = null;
HttpWebRequest _httpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(url);
HttpWebResponse _httpWebReponse = (HttpWebResponse)httpWebRequest.GetResponse();
Stream _stream = httpWebReponse.GetResponseStream();
return Image.FromStream(_stream);

But on the last line when I type in Image. FromStream can´t be found. What can I do?

Hi there
I've tried this code to download image from url:
using RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic.Core;
using RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic.Codec;
using RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic;

namespace RE__Test
public partial class Form1 : Form
public Form1()

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
REImage reImage = REFile.GetImageFromURL("http://www.rasteredge.com/Sample.png", new PNGDecoder());

REFile.SaveImageFile(reImage, "c:/reimage.png", new PNGEncoder());
But it failed.What's wrong with my code.
