Remarks: The file extension is not assumed in the WriteImageFile function. Any
extension can be specified, but it should match the specified file format.
Note that writing an image file is completely different from a .SIG file. An
image file is just a standard image format of what is seen in the control
and cannot be encrypted or decrypted by the SigPlus control. The .SIG
file format does not store an image, but rather uses a unique method of
preserving the original signature data from the tablet. To create a
metafile with a transparent background, use a trio of instructions to set
TabletOpaque = FALSE, then WriteImageFile, then set TabletOpaque
= TRUE. For all other image files, TabletOpaque must be TRUE when
the image file is written.
