Neodynamic is proud to announce the availability of ImageDraw 5.0, the most complete Dynamic Composite Image Solution for ASP.NET platform!
Neodynamic ImageDraw for ASP.NET is the definitive solution for professional web imaging design, exclusively developed for ASP.NET applications. ImageDraw is a set of server controls (ImageDraw, ImageDrawButton, and ImageDrawMap) which generate real time on-fly Dynamic Composite Images for ASP.NET Web Applications. ImageDraw allows you to dynamically create composite images (Supporting image files, text like captions and watermarks, stylized texts a.k.a. WordArt, and AutoShapes such as lines and arrows, rectangles, ovals, polygons, stars, callouts a.k.a speech bubbles, etc) with lots of useful built-in Imaging Effects like drop shadows, reflections, perspective views, Polaroid, filmstrip, scaling, resizing, skewing, and so on.
