HTML Question

html to jpg with c#

I did some searching to try and generate jpg files from an html page and found one solution called IECapt or something similar that requires IE on the server to work...not what I want.

Here's what I'm looking to do: Generate a jpg image from an html page (the html page will just be text) and then put a watermark over the jpg.

Essentially, I'm creating a "sample" that my users can see which will just be an image created from html (again just straight text). That sample should have a watermark on it as mentioned above. Are there any libraries available to do this with c#? What I'd like is to pass in the url of my page that I want converted to a method and maybe the save path of the jpg, then have it work its magic, and convert that url to a jpg image, toss a watermark on it, then say hooray!


adding some code from the answer below..can't get my head around this:

InitialContainer c = new InitialContainer("<html><body><div align=\"center\">This is my html, does it work here?</div></body></html>");
Bitmap m_Bitmap = new Bitmap(400, 700);

edit 2:

this DOES work.

Bitmap m_Bitmap = new Bitmap(400, 600);
PointF point = new PointF(0,0);
HtmlRenderer.Render(Graphics.FromImage(m_Bitmap), "<html><body><div align=\"center\">This is my html, does it work here?</div></body></html>",point, 500);
