WCF REST Image Service

Thanks to Penmetsa, Chaitanya for researching this solution.

Example below returns the image from a file stream in WCF REST


[WebGet(UriTemplate = "/GetImage?ImageId={ImageId}")]
    public Stream GetImage(int ImageId)
        FileStream stream = null;
        if (ImageId == 1)
            stream = File.OpenRead(@"C:\Images\Ipad.jpg");
        else if (ImageId == 2)
            stream = File.OpenRead(@"C:\Images\Iphone.jpg");
        else if (ImageId == 3)
            stream = File.OpenRead(@"C:\Images\Macbook.jpg");
        WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
        WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.Format = null;
        //var memoryStream = new MemoryStream();
        return stream;
