Hello !

I Scanned a document and the result came up in Jpg format and I need edit the text of that document and print it afterwards. Is there any software for editing text of .Jpg file, apart from Photoshop and Corel Draw as I don't want to download 200mb from download.

Your help will really be appriciated as this document is really important.

No, as far as I remember .jpg format embeds everything & you cannot edit it. If the document is purely text then an OCR program is your best tool - I use an old version of Caere, but have also used TextBridge. The document, with basic graphics, is scanned & saved as a Word document for editing/printing.

✔ Best Answer

SimpleOCR is pretty good for free.

As noted; if text only then these programs will work. If the object contains columns or graphics then those OCR programs cost ~600 US.

Otherwise, if you just need to change a name on the scanned document then MSPaint allows you to overwrite portions of a .jpg with a text box. If you are wanting to plagerize a document then you will need OCR or retype it.
