That demonstrates a misunderstanding of what a PDF is.

To view an image such as a png you use an image viewer that supports png images. To view a PDF you use a PDF viewer. Those are two different things.

Your thought process should be - first section.
1. Find the file (it does not matter that it is a PDF.)
2. Store the bytes in the file as binary/raw in the database. At this point it is not actually a PDF (and certainly not an image), but rather just binary/raw data.

Second section
1. Load the binary data
2. Handle the binary data as a PDF file. Such as figuring out how to either use a PDF viewer or deferring to something (like browser).

From the above this means that the following code is always going to be wrong. Because it is not an image.

Image.FromStream(ms)
