How to create a random pixel image (Mosaic) in CSharp using Visual Studio

C# Project

Share

In this project we will be creating a random pixels image in C# using Microsoft Visual Studio. By the end of this project we will have a mosaic of random colors. You are encouraged to experiment with the code and generate different mosaic as per your imagination. Have fun coding.

            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            int width = 640, height = 320;

            //bitmap
            Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(width, height);

            //random number
            Random rand = new Random();

            //create random pixels
            for (int y = 0; y < height; y++)
            {
                for (int x = 0; x < width; x++)
                {
                    //generate random ARGB value
                    int a = rand.Next(256);
                    int r = rand.Next(256);
                    int g = rand.Next(256);

                    //set ARGB value
                    bmp.SetPixel(x, y, Color.FromArgb(a, r, g, b));
                }
            }

            //load bmp in picturebox1
            pictureBox1.Image = bmp;

            //save (write) random pixel image
            bmp.Save("D:\\Image\\RandomImage.png");
        }
    }
