System.ArgumentException

stream does not contain image data or is null.

-or-

stream contains a PNG image file with a single dimension greater than 65,535 pixels.

You must keep the stream open for the lifetime of the Bitmap.

Due to a limitation of the GDI+ decoder, an System.ArgumentException is thrown if you construct a bitmap from a .png image file with a single dimension greater than 65,535 pixels.
