Setting a background image

Using Aspose.PDF 10.5.1 I am trying to create a pdf file using the Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf and I am having some trouble setting a background image.

I can use the Section.BackgroundImageFile to set images as I create my various sections, but I can’t set the image height when I do this so and I don’t want my image to fill the entire page.

I’ve tried loading my Generator into a Document object and then using either Stamps of BackgroundArtifacts but I can’t get either to work. The final pdf is still the same size as if I had just written out the Generator output. Can I get some pointers? Thanks!

Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf pdf1 = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf();

AddLetterPage(pdf1, letter_info);

Document doc = new Document(pdf1);

foreach(Page page in doc.Pages)


/BackgroundArtifact bga = new BackgroundArtifact();

bga.BackgroundImage = System.IO.File.OpenRead(image_path);

bga.ArtifactVerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;

bga.ArtifactHorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;


ImageStamp stamp = new ImageStamp(image_path);

stamp.Background = true;

stamp.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;

stamp.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;



System.IO.MemoryStream ms_pdf = new System.IO.MemoryStream();


Never mind, updated to Aspose.PDF 10.6 and everything is working now.
