You can upload images on cloudinary following these steps for C# .NET

  1. Install Cloudinary using Nuget package manager console.
    Install-Package CloudinaryDotNet?
  2. Now you need to use the following namespaces in your C# code
     using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Web;
    using CloudinaryDotNet;
    using CloudinaryDotNet.Actions;?
  3. Create  Cloudinary Object using API key and password provided to you after sign up, pass the image file to ImageUploadParams() function and call cloudinary's Upload function
    var myAccount = new Account { ApiKey = apiKey, ApiSecret = apiSecret, Cloud =  cloudName }; 
    Cloudinary _cloudinary = new Cloudinary(myAccount);
    var uploadParams = new ImageUploadParams()
      File = new FileDescription(@"c:\my_image.jpg");
    var uploadResult = _cloudinary .Upload(uploadParams);??
  4. get Uploaded file url using uploadResult.SecureUri.AbsoluteUri;
  5. That's it you are done, If you want to pass additional details like Image Width, height, you can use the C# code like below
     var uploadParams = new ImageUploadParams {
     File = new  FileDescription(file.FileName,file.InputStream), 
    //transformation code here
    Transformation = new  Transformation().Width(200).Height(200).Crop("thumb").Gravity("face") 
    var uploadResult = _cloudinary.Upload(uploadParams);?
  6. For Video upload use C# code as

    var uploadParams = new VideoUploadParams()
        File = new FileDescription(@"dog.mp4"),
        ResourceType = "video"
        PublicId = "my_folder/my_sub_folder/my_dog",
        Overwrite = true,
        NotificationUrl = "http://mysite/my_notification_endpoint"
      var uploadResult = cloudinary.Upload(uploadParams);

    The video will overwrite the existing my_dog video if it exists. When the video upload is complete, the specified notification URL will receive details about the uploaded media asset.
