Ok I have a control that I draw ontop of by overriding the paint method now I want to save a bmp or jpg of the control with the edits ontop of it. Whenever I use the graphics save method though I get either one layer (the original image) or the edits (my draw changes).

How can I save both layers to one images?

try something like this:

private void OnPaint(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs e)
{
   MyDrawChanges( e.Graphics );
}

private void MyDrawChanges( Graphics g )
{
// do your edits here
}

// and save all your drawing like this
public void Save(string FileName)
{
 Btimap bmp = new Bitmap(YourOriginalImage);
 Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);
 MyDrawChanges( g );
 
 bmp.Save(FileName);  
}
