    I'm drawing freehand (Less Note app) on a canvas which is initialized to a panel. After drawing, it's easy to save the drawing to the photo gallery using:
    Dim svBmp As Bitmap
        svBmp = cvsDrawPad.CreateBitmap
    "Current image saved to Photo Album"False)
    However, there is an underlying imageview with various paper types (lined, graph, parchment). I would like to somehow merge the canvas onto the paper type before saving ... so it looks like I drew on the paper (which is just a png).

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!

    You will need to first draw the ImageView to the canvas with DrawBitmap or DrawView.

    Yes, it's pretty easy. You do need to pass the background. This below isn't complete, but just add a second bitmap and assign it to an imageview and add it to photopanel. Add the background first, then the drawing on top.

    Sub Watermark (Image As Bitmap, background as bitmapAs Bitmap
    Dim PhotoCanvas As Canvas
    Dim PhotoPanel As Panel
    Dim PhotoView As ImageView
    Dim NewImage As Bitmap
    Dim bView As Bitmap
        PhotoPanel.Width = 
        PhotoPanel.Height = 
        PhotoView.Bitmap = 
    00Image.Width ,Image.Height)
        NewImage = PhotoCanvas.CreateBitmap
    Return NewImage
    End Sub
