How to get text and image in the same cell?

I have create a table which has 48 images. I put the images to the right side in the cell. Now I would like to put the number of the image in the same cell at the left side.

Here is my part of code :


for (int i = x; i  48; i += 4)
    int number = i + 4;
    imageFilePath = "images/image" + number + ".jpeg";
    jpg = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imageFilePath);
    jpg.ScaleAbsolute(166.11023622047f, 124.724409448829f);
    jpg.BorderColor = BaseColor.BLUE;
    string numberofcard = i.ToString();
    cell = new PdfPCell(jpg);
    cell.FixedHeight = 144.56692913386f;
    cell.Border = 0;
    cell.HorizontalAlignment = Element.ALIGN_RIGHT;
    cell.VerticalAlignment = Element.ALIGN_MIDDLE;
How could I insert the number of the image at the left corner of cell?

If you are using iText 7 I recommend to look at TabStop class. You can create a paragraph and add some content to the left, then add tab stops and add some content to the right. Your code in Java will look like this:

public void createPdf(String dest) throws IOException {
    PdfDocument pdfDoc = new PdfDocument(new PdfWriter(dest));
    Document doc = new Document(pdfDoc);
    Table table = new Table(2).setMargin(4);
    Cell cell;
    Image img;
    Paragraph p;
    for (int i = 1; i 

Here is a screenshot of the resulting PDF:
