I need to do the following in VB6 SP5:
* Load a PNG that has transparency.
* Print text on it in a specific font type and color.
* Save it as a PNG with the original transparency.
I've already tried alot, but didn't find a solution.

Everybody knows about reading PNG, but not drawing on it (in a PictureBox for example) and saving it, while keeping the transparency.

Hope you can help!

I'll throw in all my points for this one (i've only got 75 at the moment, but will try to get some more.)
Kind regards and thanks already,
Filip Hoeven
