c# - write - draw text on bitmap android

c# write text on bitmap (4)

I have following problem. I want to make some graphics in c# windows form. I want to read bitmap to my program and after it write some text on this bitmap. In the end I want this picture load to pictureBox. And it's my question. How can I do it?

example, how must it work:

Bitmap a = new Bitmap(@"path\picture.bmp");
// ? a.writeText("some text", positionX, positionY);
pictuteBox1.Image = a;

Is it possible do to?

Very old question, but just had to build this for an app today and found the settings shown in other answers do not result in a clean image (possibly as new options were added in later .Net versions).

Assuming you want the text in the centre of the bitmap, you can do this:

// Load the original image
Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap("filename.bmp");

// Create a rectangle for the entire bitmap
RectangleF rectf = new RectangleF(0, 0, bmp.Width, bmp.Height);

// Create graphic object that will draw onto the bitmap
Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);

// ------------------------------------------
// Ensure the best possible quality rendering
// ------------------------------------------
// The smoothing mode specifies whether lines, curves, and the edges of filled areas use smoothing (also called antialiasing). 
// One exception is that path gradient brushes do not obey the smoothing mode. 
// Areas filled using a PathGradientBrush are rendered the same way (aliased) regardless of the SmoothingMode property.
g.SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;

// The interpolation mode determines how intermediate values between two endpoints are calculated.
g.InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic;

// Use this property to specify either higher quality, slower rendering, or lower quality, faster rendering of the contents of this Graphics object.
g.PixelOffsetMode = PixelOffsetMode.HighQuality;

// This one is important
g.TextRenderingHint = TextRenderingHint.AntiAliasGridFit;

// Create string formatting options (used for alignment)
StringFormat format = new StringFormat()
    Alignment = StringAlignment.Center,
    LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center

// Draw the text onto the image
g.DrawString("yourText", new Font("Tahoma",8), Brushes.Black, rectf, format);

// Flush all graphics changes to the bitmap

// Now save or use the bitmap
image.Image = bmp;


Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap("filename.bmp");

RectangleF rectf = new RectangleF(70, 90, 90, 50);

Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);

g.SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;
g.InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic;
g.PixelOffsetMode = PixelOffsetMode.HighQuality;
g.DrawString("yourText", new Font("Tahoma",8), Brushes.Black, rectf);



var bmp = new Bitmap(@"path\picture.bmp");
using( Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage( bmp ) )
    g.DrawString( ... );

picturebox1.Image = bmp;
