I am wanting to display an image that is aligned so that the centre of a string of text is in line with the centre of the image. I know the image's dimensions and the length of the string, as well as the font I am using to draw the text, but I can't work out how to calculate the coordinates of the centre of the string. I am using the java.awt.Graphics.drawString and drawImage methods to draw each part of my object. If I have set my graphics component's font to have a size of 12 say, does this mean that each character takes up 12 x 12 pixels?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
