Very basic example :

using System;
using System.Drawing;


namespace Drawing1
{
      /// <summary>
      /// Summary description for Class1.
      /// </summary>
      class Class1
      {
            
            [STAThread]
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                  Bitmap b = new Bitmap(710,710);
                  b.MakeTransparent(Color.WhiteSmoke);
                  Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(b);
                  g.Clear(Color.WhiteSmoke);
                  g.SmoothingMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;
                  g.DrawEllipse(new Pen(Brushes.White, 6f), 5 , 5, 700, 700);
                  b.Save(new System.IO.FileStream(@"c:\temp\lightring.gif",System.IO.FileMode.Create), System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif);      
            }
      }
}

This gives you a 710 x 710 transparent gif in the middle of which is a 700 diameter white circle.
