same problem a while ago May 10, 2007

I hate to say this but I posted the same question several weeks ago, and despite a lot of help from colleagues, the only solution I found was to get the author to send the original images, which were in an Excel file.

Here's the link to the discussion. I hope something works for you!

A makeshift solution May 10, 2007

While of course it would be best if you had the appropriate professional software, or for the client to send you the original files, one possibility would be to take snapshots of the images using the "print screen" key, pasting it into "Paint" or similar, and editing the text there.

PDF --> JPEG May 10, 2007

When I need to edit a picture in PDF, I save the PDF page as a jpeg file and edit this file in Photoshop. I have Acrobat 6.0, so it is possible to extract a particular PDF page.

If you cannot do the above, let me know and I will help you extract the PDF page and save it as a jpeg file.

Try SnagIt! May 11, 2007

You can capture any image on the screen and use a simpler picture editor for any words in the image you can't edit with any regular text editors, and even PDF Converter-based software.
The trial version is available in. The individual use price is quite reasonable too. I find it quite useful.

Adobe Illustrator might work May 17, 2007

Adobe Illustrator opens PDF files and you can then edit them there.
