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();

    //Set the Source for PngOptions
    pngOptions.Source = new Aspose.Imaging.Sources.StreamSource(stream);

    //Create an instance of Image 
    using (Aspose.Imaging.Image image = Aspose.Imaging.Image.Create(pngOptions, 500, 500))

        //Draw a String using the SolidBrush object and Font, at specific Point
        graphics.DrawString("This image is created by Aspose.Imaging API", new Aspose.Imaging.Font("Times New Roman", 16), brush, new Aspose.Imaging.PointF(50, 400));
