how to easily import text onto an image
Posted on 2006-11-28
I have a list of items in excel that I would like to place onto an image (either bmp or jpg) to be used as a desktop wallpaper.
Currently I create a blank template in paintbox for the appropriate size and colour, I then prepare the excel spreadsheet so that it has the same colour background and the text is formatted roughly to the size of the screen. The next step is to put excel into fullscreen mode and then take screen shots and cut and paste the excel bit I need onto my image. As you can see this is a cumbersome and long winded process!! (especially when the image needs to be udpated regularly).
I would appreciate any advice on a simpler method and what would be the most suitable application to use.
