How do I create an new image using an exisiting background and adding text programatically?
Posted on 2008-10-01
Hi all, Here's what I want to do:
I have 20 odd different images which represent sign backings. I want to be able to get clients to pick a background, enter the text they want in a text box and then create a specific image which adds the text to the backing. Basically I want them to be able to see what their sign will look like. Ideally I would like to be able to use probably 8 different fonts (I understand these are differing widths) and be able to change the font color to either black or silver. I've never worked with images in C# /.Net before so I'm looking for some kind of guideline as to where to begin. ie: What classes / how to add to an existing image, how to save that image as another etc.
