Add text to Image in ASP.NET

Sometimes, it is nice to have a text caption embedded into an image, rather than
display the caption in HTML. Fortunately, this is fairly straightforward in ASP.NET.

You can embed some text into the photo:

/image_text.aspx?i=/photo.jpg&t=Photo+of+You

Play around with the querystring. See how the caption changes when you
change the text in the querystring.

Here is the code for image_text.aspx

<%@ Page Language="c#"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing.Imaging" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing.Drawing2D" %> 
<script runat="server">
	private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	{
		Bitmap bmp= new Bitmap(Server.MapPath(Request.QueryString["i"]));
		Graphics g=Graphics.FromImage(bmp);
		g.SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.AntiAlias ;
		g.DrawString(Request.QueryString["t"], 
			new Font("verdana",12),SystemBrushes.WindowText, 1, 1);
		Response.ContentType="image/jpeg";
		bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, bmp.RawFormat) ;
	}
</script>
