Fake-Out a .bmp

1. Situation:

a. PaperPort 9 software from ScanSoft allows users to annotate .pdf documents with a "stamp".

b. Unfortunately, they decided to limit the graphic usable for this purpose to .bmp's.

c. .Bmp's don't alllow for transparent backgrounds.

d. A non-transparent background prevents using the "stamp" to affix a realistic-looking signature or initials, because the background surrounding the signature blots out a portion of the document being "stamped".

2. Goal:

a. Starting with a standard optical scan of a signature (.tif or .pdf), create a signature image with a transparent background at a size specified by user (default to the size of a typical signature on a document). Signature should also be resizable, once "stamped" on the document.

b. Create a file that looks to PaperPort like a standard .bmp, but one that actually consists of the signature on a transparent background. In other words, since it is unlikely that ScanSoft will change their program (or even answer my query about it, it seems ), I want to feed PaperPort a "fake .bmp" that has the transparent background and resizability that I need.

c. Although I don't know if such a file can be created, .pdf files are easily annotated with transparent background, resizable "stamps" from within Adobe Acrobat. So, the "business end" of the goal is not a problem, only getting PaperPort to accept the "fake .bmp" is.

3. Environment: The routine to accept the .tif / .pdf input, create the transparent background "fake .bmp" file and store it in a user-specified location should be fully managed .net code capable of being easily integrated into a .net program as a component from the VB.net IDE toolbox.

4. Addendum: Note that the graphic file does NOT have to support color. Simply a black signature / initials on a transparent background is sufficient.
