Default GDI+ Problem -- Any Insight?

Alright,
    I am pretty fluent working with the GDI classes but I have run into something I have never tried to do before and am at a loss.

What I am doing is capturing a signature through a mobile device and this is working beautifully but I need to save the image as a byte string in a SQLCE database.

Here is the problem. Saving an image to a database is a ruidmentary task but, because of size limitations, I dont ever actually save the image on the device and want to use my Bitmap or Graphics object to get a byte representation of the signature that I can then place in the database.

Problem is, I don't know if this is even possible; any insight would be grateful =]

-------------------------
I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

^^Thats my signature

I have no idea what an MS Word Callout is, an example would be preferable.

YOu are going to need to use Vectors (Paths) for this and pass in an Array of points to do this. This is a more advanced topic in regard to GDI so you are going to have to have a firm understanding of the basics. Do a search on google for tutorials related to working with vectors and Paths and that should put you on the right path.
