Here explaining concerning JQuery call to MVC controller method.
    $("#UploadImg").change(function () {
        var data = new FormData();
        var files = $("#UploadImg").get(0).files;
        if (files.length > 0) {
            data.append("MyImages", files[0]);
            url: "/UploadImage/UploadFile",
            type: "POST",
            processData: false,
            contentType: false,
            data: data,
            success: function (response) {
                //code after success
                $("#imgPreview").attr('src', '/Upload/' + response);
            error: function (er) {


Step 5: MVC Controller Action

Here is a written logic to create a new file name, re size image and upload finally to specific folder "Upload"
public JsonResult UploadFile()
   string _imgname = string.Empty;
   if (System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.Files.AllKeys.Any())
      var pic = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.Files["MyImages"];
        if (pic.ContentLength > 0)
             var fileName = Path.GetFileName(pic.FileName);
             var _ext = Path.GetExtension(pic.FileName);

             _imgname = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
             var _comPath = Server.MapPath("/Upload/MVC_") + _imgname + _ext;
             _imgname = "MVC_" + _imgname + _ext;

             ViewBag.Msg = _comPath;
             var path = _comPath;

             // Saving Image in Original Mode

             // resizing image
             MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
             WebImage img = new WebImage(_comPath);

             if (img.Width > 200)
               img.Resize(200, 200);
               // end resize
   return Json(Convert.ToString(_imgname), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
