Draw image in background


I'm just wondering how to draw an image in the background of the PDF?

when i use this code then the image is on top of header and footer in my PDF:

                var bgGraphics = page.Graphics;
                string bgImagePath = ResolveApplicationImagePath("kvrBackground.jpg");
                PdfImage bgImage = new PdfBitmap(bgImagePath);
                bgGraphics.DrawImage(bgImage, 0, 0, pdfDocument.PageSettings.Width, pdfDocument.PageSettings.Height);

have a nice day :-)

Hi Jacob,

Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.


We can able to set the image as background, please use the below code snippet:


            PdfLoadedDocument ldDoc = new PdfLoadedDocument("Input.pdf");

            PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();


            for (int i = 0, count = ldDoc.Pages.Count; i < count; ++i)


                PdfPageBase page = doc.Pages.Add();

                PdfGraphics g = page.Graphics;


                PdfPageBase lpage = ldDoc.Pages[i];

                PdfTemplate template =  lpage.CreateTemplate();


                PdfImage img = new PdfBitmap("Image.gif");

                g.DrawImage(img, new PointF());

                g.DrawPdfTemplate(template, PointF.Empty, page.Size);





Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
