Try this:

string text = "Hello World";

Bitmap objBitmap = new Bitmap(200, 200);
Graphics objGraphics = Graphics.FromImage(objBitmap);

Font objFont = new Font("Arial", 16f);

SolidBrush objBrushForeColor = new SolidBrush(Color.Black);
SolidBrush objBrushBackColor = new SolidBrush(Color.White);

objGraphics.FillRectangle(objBrushBackColor, 0, 0, Width, Height);
objGraphics.RotateTransform(45f); //Rotate Text

objGraphics.DrawString(text, objFont, objBrushForeColor, 40f, 10f);

objBitmap.Save("test.gif", ImageFormat.Gif);

Open in new window
