Hi, Here I am going to show how to convert image file to base 64 image using HTML 5 and jquery.  Before that Base 64 image means we can convert image to some text so that we need not want to store as file. We can store image as text and that we can be used in HTML pages.



<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $('#FileUpload1').change(function () {
                    var rdr = new FileReader();
                    rdr.onload = function (e)
                        document.getElementById('Image1').setAttribute("src", e.target.result);
                        document.getElementById('divTag').innerHTML = " &lt;img src =\"" + e.target.result + "\" &gt;&lt;/img&gt;";
    <input type="file" id="FileUpload1" accept=".jpg,.png,.gif" />
        <br />
                <img id="Image1"   style="width:250px;height:250px;" alt="" />
         <div id="divTag"> </div>



You can copy the code to a html page and you will get a image in img tag

<img src ="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAB4AAAAe...........................................BJRU5ErkJggg==" ></img>


Use in background style 

.classbg {
    background: url('data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAB4AAAAe...................BJRU5ErkJggg==');
