  • What I've done depending on the image is...

    Used the clone tool to clone the image "behind"  the text with image sections near it... the text is now gone but the image that would have been there with no text is "revealed". Now add the text you want, where you want, how big you want to the image... right over where the other text used to be if you like.

    or...

    added a shaped over the existing text with a solid fill that either matches the image or is complementary... then added the text I wanted inside the opaque box.

    or...

    patched in a whole section from another part of the original image thereby covering the existing text... then adding the text over that I want.

    Devil  the 'dd'

    and then there is the option of scanning it into Word and running Office 2007s OCR function. Eh, it works. Word Perfect used to have a Kick A version, you'd think they would have loaded that into Draw at some point...

  • Hi Steve, some scanners come with a OCR program or optical caracter recognize.

    The program that I have is called Abby FineReader Sprint

    scans doc and can be edited
