"Hello World" to .GIF - HOW?

My boss wants to show text on webpages such that Search-Spiders cannot easily scrape the info ...

So, I need to convert flat text into .JPG or .GIF in C# code-behind in an ASP.NET server-side class. The really tricky part is, the text must be magnified/shrunk and line-wrapped to appear as "best-possible-use-of-visual-space" in an exact image size of H:100px -by- W:150px.

Darn! I don't even know where to start looking for a solution!

Any help appreciated!

@mnasman - Thanks! I'll check-out the links but I'm encouraged ... captcha distorts images ... and the boss wants to apply different font-familys and font-colors such that the resultant images "look" fairly normal.

If you know how to create a gif or a jpeg file from a Bitmap, this might be for you:

The article/example has been written for VB.NET. However, the core functions have been ported to C#.

The example might not been complete, but is a good starting point for solving your problem.
