I am trying to wrap my head around how to open a pdf with PDFReader (which is a template), add some text and some images, and then save it out as a new file using PDFWriter... Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks :)

Hey Nokturnal,

Sorry for being late in answering you.

You can use the following code snippet:


var img = new Bitmap(@"image.jpg");
using (var reader = new PdfReader("in.pdf", dpi, dpi))
using (var frame = reader.Frames[0])
using (var container = frame.GetContent())
using (var writer = new PdfWriter("out.pdf"))
       writer.AddPage(pageWidth, pageHeight, dpi, dpi);
       using (var graphics = writer.GetGraphics())
              graphics.DrawImage(frame.GetBitmap(), new System.Drawing.RectangleF(0, 0, frame.Width, frame.Height));
              graphics.DrawImage(img, new System.Drawing.RectangleF(0, 0, imgWidth, imgHeight));
              var plainText = new PlainText("Some text", graphics.CreateFont("Arial", 16), new System.Drawing.PointF(20, 30));

Let me know, if you have any questions/concerns.

Kind regards,
