Morning guys and gals,

I have an e-commerce website that displays product images using a HTTPHandler (for resizing) I have been looking for a way to overlay "Coming Soon" on top of the image for products that were not yet available for purchase...

I found a really cool little article by Donn Felker for a HTTPHandler that does this... http://blog.donnfelker.com/2007/09/18/WatermarkingImagesInASPNETWithAnHttpHandler.aspx 

His is slightly different where his code watermarks all images, i want to add a similar method to my HTTPHandler that if run will overlay the image with whatever....

Can someone maybe help me with this as i am not sure how to adapt this code to function in this way.

Attchaed is my HTTPHandler

That'll take a lot of processing on the part of your server.  Much simpler to just a layer a span tag over top of the image and let the browser do most of the work.

I managed to get this working... Pretty neat....

jcoehoorn: The reason i want to do this is to have the flexibility to overlay whatever text i wish. "Coming Soon" or "Sold" or whatever... And in terms of the processing, well out of 100 product image, 1 of those products may be "coming soon" or require the watermark... I think it will be worth the server load.

A span tag (asp.net label control) would give you the same flexibility, but if you have this working that's pretty cool too.

I guess by flexibility i also mean i am lazy and i want the implementing of this to be easy... All my product images use this HTTPHandler, by modifying this to handle that watermarking the change will be implemented site wide. If i used a span or div with a transparent gif or png over the images i will need to implement this wherever an image is displayed and the code to turn it on or off...
