Update on program I am writing

Since, I last posted for the post “The waiting game” I am still waiting to get a response back from the person I believe to be my sister living in Carson City, NV. I have not got the dreaded return letter, so that is good news. The bad news, we got hail today in South Dakota, just glad it did not last long.

So in the mean time, I keep busy on the program I am writing in Visual Basic and am making progress on that.

Genealogy program for images

Right now, the program can write on the bottom portion of the image to add text.

Add text to the bottom portion of image.

Mirror image the photo.

Am able to flip the image over to add text to it the back side. Similar to holding a physical photo in your hand and flipping it over to see the backside.

The font, as long as using truetype fonts, can be changed to ones liking and the font color can be changed as well. I did notice that on certain photos that were not at a 96 DPI would not except the text the correct way when adding the text at the bottom portion of the image, so had to figure that out and is why at the bottom right hand side of the program there is a function to correct that problem.

So, while I wait to get a response this is what I have been upto.

Program to add text to an image -Genealogy program

It has been a while since I posted. I have been pre-occupied writing a program to add text to an image. I would regularly use Microsoft Word for this kind of task, but I found myself becoming  frustrated trying to accomplish what I wanted it do to -mainly the formating. So, I started writing a program that would take an image from the Web. For instance, on Ancestry there are several photos of my Cousins. I would save them to the my computer, then add the text in Word. Next, I would have to format the image, add the text, highlight all text etc…

The program I wrote will even open a photo from the hard drive and add text to it in one shot. Stress Free solution.

The program allows the user to change the font color from black, red or blue depending on the situation.  This is done by the radio buttons I programed.

Loreto Family Christmas

I do not need to highlight the text, then select the color like I did in Word -the program does it in one shot. The above example is showing red text,

where I grabbed an image from my cousin’s family tree. The next photo is using black text which is of my Loreto family first and second cousins during Christmas. The one real cool feature is that when you enter the text and have the font color selected, you add the text to the image, but then you realize you forgot to add more text. I have tested this several times and all you need to do is type the extra words and click the add text button again. Presto, just the way you wanted it..

I still have some more to add to it but the text to image is done.  Here are some more examples: Let me know what you think.
