hi, have a slight problem here.

this is my open file dialog code.

private void browseToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            OpenFileDialog ofd = new OpenFileDialog();

            ofd.Title = "Browse And Upload A Template.";
            ofd.Filter = "All files (*.*)|*.*|All files (*.*)|*.*";

           DialogResult dr = ofd.ShowDialog();

            if (dr == DialogResult.OK)
                //bitmap = (Bitmap)Bitmap.FromFile(ofd.FileName);
                System.IO.StreamReader sr = new System.IO.StreamReader(filename);

                Form activeChildForm = this.ActiveMdiChild;

               // filename = ofd.FileName;
                pictureBox3.Image = Image.FromFile(ofd.FileName);
                Image imgPhotoVert = Image.FromFile(ofd.FileName);
                Image imgPhotoHoriz = Image.FromFile(ofd.FileName);
                Image imgPhoto = null;
                imgPhoto = FixedSize(imgPhotoVert, 720, 500);
                pictureBox3.Image = imgPhoto;

                if (activeChildForm != null)
                    TextBox activeTextBox = (TextBox)activeChildForm.ActiveControl;

                    if (activeTextBox != null)
                        activeTextBox.Text = sr.ReadToEnd();

Through the method arguments. Pass a filename or a reference of FileInfo object to that method.
