You can use the types in the System.Drawing namespace to accomplish what
you want. I found a pretty good example of how to overlay text on images
at http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/vbtextoverlay.asp. A search for
".NET image overlay text" should turn up some other good resources.

Subject: [IronPython] Help with bitmap & text

I need to open a small bitmap file, either BMP or JPG, add up to 4 lines
text, then save the file. Can anyone suggest a solution or point me in
right direction?

The image files contain data for viewing on my portable
MP3 player, things like my address book, Google calendar info, weather
shopping lists, etc. Anything in a short text file (4 lines max). 

My original
app is in CPython, made very simple to use due to the use of both PIL
PythonCard. It looks like PIL was going to be ported, but never
That's a shame, because PIL is so simple and powerful.
