        Image doodle = GetDoodle(GetImagePath(GetSource("")));

    Re: source code help

    The code works, I tried it, but you need to set it up properly first.
    In the future, always describe the problem you're having: what happens, and what should happen, does it compile, any errors, what are the error messages, etc. Don't just say that it's not working - people will be more ready to help, and be able to provide better help if you provide more detail.

    If didn't do it already, add a picture box and a button with the exact same names as in the code (button_doodle, and pictureBox_Doodle). Now you need to hook up the click event handler with the buttons click event: select the button in the designer, go to the properties window, and click on the yellow lightning icon to show the events; locate the Click event, click on it, and select the button_doodle_Click method from the dropdown (it's the only compatible method).
