We have a file called BLUE.PNG and is located in c:\pictures
This is that file example:

BLUE.PNG
Now in ASP.NET C# we want to process information and some variables and after that put some text over the picture and save like BLUEMOD.PNG in same c:\pictures directory. For example the next picture is text over the first picture:

BLUETEXT
That text will be generated via string variables or whatever. How can we do then to put text over a picture in ASP.NET C# and save the results in other file?

Any ideas?

You need to bring in the Drawing library for this purpose. You can make use of a Graphics object to draw on the image.

e.g.

static byte[] DrawOnImage(byte[] imageData, string text)
{
    using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(imageData))
    {
        using (Image img = Image.FromStream(ms))
        {
            using (Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(img))
            {
                g.DrawString(text, new Font("Arial", 12F), Brushes.Black, new PointF(50, 40));
            }

            ms.Position = 0;    // Important!

            img.Save(ms, ImageFormat.Png);
        }

        return ms.ToArray();
    }
}

Open in new window


Usage
byte[] imageBytes = File.ReadAllBytes("blue.png");
byte[] modifiedBytes = DrawOnImage(imageBytes, "Example of text");

File.WriteAllBytes("blue2.png", modifiedBytes);

Open in new window
