I need an application which creates an image, let me explain this in a little more detail.

I have PDA application which captures a signature and sends it back to our server where it is converted to a .gif file.

At current i have a webform which displays some information (payment mandate) and insert the .gif file at the correct location on the form and voila that works well.

I now need to replicate this form but need to save the whole thing as another picture, it's like i need to take a snapshot of the webpage and save that as an image.

What method should i use to do this?

Thanks

You mean the Web Page which is being browsed by User in a browser should be saved as a snapshot. And where do you wish to do that, on client machine / server ?

That's just an example of what the image i'm saving should look like.

I'm not after an application which will take a snapshot of a webpage i need to write something which will take a .gif and place it on a form which looks like the web page and then saves the whole thing as a single image so i can then use that image else where.

Does that make sense?

Thanks though.

Theoretically, since the the rest of the web page (besides the signature) is going to be the same every time minus a few individual filled out forms, couldn't you have a default blank image on your server and then dynamically write in text into each of the "form fields" and save it as a new image?

Ok i think i've found my solution, i'm going to use a report writer (data dynamics) and export as tiff and then from tiff convert to jpeg.

Should be easier than editing pictures.

Thanks all
