I am using a picture box to display a background image (Picture of word template for users to fill in). What i need to do is capture the user ink input as well as the original template image and save it to a bmp or jpeg file. Currently I am achieving this via a screen capture but would like a more elegant solution as this presents additional problems.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I did this a couple of years ago and the screen capture was the only way I could find to do it. Is there anything you particularly don't like about screen capture I found it to be pretty effective for the purposes of my application.

Hi:

This article on Printing Ink explains a technique of "printing" the background image and ink to a Device Independent Bitmap. Instead then of printing the bitmap, you could just save it.
