I've a plastic card image and I want to read the graphics characters printed on it in order to write the correspondent magnetic stripe. I'm working with VS 2010. Does anybody knows how to do this, are there any function libraries to use?

Tks in advance,
Leonel

You can also go with MODI. Refer this.

I have used this with PDFs and able to succeed. You can use image as well.
