return;
}
var file = await Plugin.Media.CrossMedia.Current.PickPhotoAsync(new Plugin.Media.Abstractions.PickMediaOptions
{
PhotoSize = Plugin.Media.Abstractions.PhotoSize.Medium,

});

if (file == null)
return;

string fileName = file.Path;
image.Source = ImageSource.FromStream(() =>
{
var stream = file.GetStream();
file.Dispose();
return stream;
});

//UploadImage1(file.AlbumPath);
UploadImage(file.GetStream(), fileName);
}
private async void UploadImage(Stream mfile, string fileName)
{
int authorID = 2;
string username = "yourusername";

var url = "https://yourwebsite.com/ba-add-profile-pic.php";
url += "?id="+ authorID +"&username="+ username; //any parameters you want to send to the php page.

try
{
HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
client.BaseAddress = new Uri("https://yourwebsite.com/");
MultipartFormDataContent form = new MultipartFormDataContent();
//HttpContent content = new StringContent("fileToUpload");
//form.Add(content, "fileToUpload");

//get file's ext

{

FileName = fName
};
form.Add(content);
var response = await client.PostAsync(url, form);
var result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;

}
catch (Exception e)
{

Debug.WriteLine("Exception Caught: " + e.ToString());

return;
}
}

public static byte[] ToArray(Stream s)
{
if (s == null)
throw new ArgumentNullException(nameof(s));
if (!s.CanRead)
throw new ArgumentException("Stream cannot be read");

MemoryStream ms = s as MemoryStream;
if (ms != null)
return ms.ToArray();

long pos = s.CanSeek ? s.Position : 0L;
if (pos != 0L)
s.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

byte[] result = new byte[s.Length];
s.Read(result, 0, result.Length);
if (s.CanSeek)
s.Seek(pos, SeekOrigin.Begin);
return result;
}
}
}

PHP webpage Posting Image too

//parameters send in via querystring
if (!isset($_REQUEST['author']) || !isset($_REQUEST['username']) ) {
