'' This sample demonstrates how to add a text watermark
'' to an image. The image is rendered using its native
'' resolution on a GcBitmap, then the watermark text
'' is drawn on top using a semitransparent color.
'' The resulting bitmap with the added watermark
'' can be saved to any of the supported image formats.
