Hello friends,
I have one problem relating to rotate ellipse by given Center,
Suppose I have one ellipse and what should be is to rotate that ellipse by point given by user and ellipse should be rotate around that given point.
I have tried

How could it be possible please any buddy can suggest……

I already saw the exact same Question. Is it you who duplication or there is a school where many people got the same assignments? The problem is difficult, but the way, I would say, ill-posed. ("Ill-posed problems" is the whole branch of mathematics.)

Try something like:

//center of the rotation
PointF center = new PointF(...);
//angle in degrees
float angle = 45.0f;
//use a rotation matrix
using (Matrix rotate = new Matrix())
    //used to restore g.Transform previous state
    GraphicsContainer container = g.BeginContainer();

    //create the rotation matrix
    rotate.RotateAt(angle, center);
    //add it to g.Transform
    g.Transform = rotate;

    //draw what you want

    //restore g.Transform state

If you want to add several transforms, then you can do:
//gets current transform
Matrix transform = g.Transform;
//add the rotation
transform.Multiply(rotate, MatrixOrder.Append);
//use the new transform
g.Transform = transform;

ya it is working thanks..........

You are welcome.

Exactly the right way, my 5.
I did not understand the title of the Question, but it should be noted: rendering like that should be done on Control, not image object; and double buffering should be applied, and all rendering should be done inside Paint event (or in overloaded OnPaint).
Here's a simple code from msdn on how to translate and rotate a graph ...

public void MultiplyTransformMatrixOrder(PaintEventArgs e)
// Create transform matrix.
Matrix transformMatrix = new Matrix();
// Translate matrix, prepending translation vector.
transformMatrix.Translate(200.0F, 100.0F);
// Rotate transformation matrix of graphics object,
//  prepending rotation matrix.
// Multiply (append to) transformation matrix of
//  graphics object to translate graphics transformation.
e.Graphics.MultiplyTransform(transformMatrix, MatrixOrder.Append);
// Draw rotated, translated ellipse.
e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(new Pen(Color.Blue, 3), -80, -40, 160, 80);

Stop voting 4 on correct and complete answers.

Olivier, how did you know that?
I recently questioned Piccadilly's consistency and used to blame posting of some irrelevant or unverified information, but nobody should ever be blamed without a firm proof of the fact...

Yesterday he answered many questions and all other answers except his received a 4. So I guessed he dit this and didn't agree with that. His answers are not wrong (and I even gave points to a few of them), I just want him to give fair points.
By the way, I didn't vote this one (because of what I said before) but I will now because it doesn't deserve a 1. I don't understand who did this??
Voted 5.

sorry ...
Use Matrix to define a rotate point. Example...

e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(Pens.Black, 50, 50, 50, 100);
Matrix X = new Matrix();
// The Point to rotate
PointF pt = new PointF(90.0f, 80.0f);
// Rotate by 45 degrees
X.RotateAt(45, pt, MatrixOrder.Append);
e.Graphics.Transform = X;

e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(Pens.Red, 50, 50, 50, 100);

You can see the difference of the two ellipse
