Examples

This example uses Graphics class to create primitive shapes on the Image surface. To demonstrate the operation, the example creates a new Image in PNG format and draw primitive shapes on Image surface using Draw methods exposed by Graphics class

[C#]

//Creates an instance of FileStream
using (System.IO.FileStream stream = new System.IO.FileStream(@"C:\temp\output.png", System.IO.FileMode.Create))

    //Create an instance of PngOptions and set its various properties
    Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PngOptions pngOptions = new Aspose.Imaging.ImageOptions.PngOptions();
