I am looking for C# code (.net 2.0 or above) that will extract a string out of an image (.png format) - a sample is attached. The code must be as fast and lightweight as possible and safe to run on a very busy web server (IIS7, windows server 2008). The code cannot use any third party DLLs or code unless all code is delivered for such DLLs and can be compiled by me. Please tell me about your experience, your proposed solution, how much your solution will cost, and the timeline for development (sooner is better). Thank you!
I have attached a sample image file. I need simple code that will reliably extract the string from an image. Your code will be testing with many such images before acceptance!
