A demo on how to:
  1. Write text onto an image with user-selected font, size and color, and allow the user to drag the text to anywhere on the background image.
  2. Allow cut, copy and/or paste of a region of the current image, or to copy the whole image to clipboard.
  3. Place an image on the current image and allow the user to drag the former to a desired position of the latter. The program allows pasting a picture image, or a text image, which is obtained from an external program through the clipboard, into the current image. For example, paste a clip art or an art text from Word, and allow the user to drag it to a desired position on the current image.
In sum, this demo shows you how to combine text and other images with an existing image and thus provides some of the functionality of an image editing application.
