Do you just want to right align your text, or do you actually want to draw the text from right to left (ie. first word appears on the right).

If you just want to right align, then you need to use FontMetrics to calculate the width of your text and draw it such that the last char appears on the right edge.

If you actually want to draw your text from right to left, then simply reverse your string and right align as above.

Since you draw on a Image, I assume that you have a Graphics object. All you have to do is to draw from right to left, starting with "image.width" coordinate, decreasing the drawing point with the last drawed character width, down to 0.

Or you can remap the coordinates from {x = 0, y = 0}={top left corner} to {top right corner}
