    Make text look the same as in a picture


    Hi, I would like to know how to edit text in pictures using the font that is already in the picture.
    Example: How could I change the text in this picture to something else, but keep the font and style the same?

    If the image is a jpg image like the one you posted then you can't. You cannot do this for most simple image formats like jpg, png and gif.

    Some more advanced image formats will allow you to edit the text in the image assuming the text was saved as a special layer. If you want to keep the font and style the same you usually need to have the font installed on your computer already. Fonts are almost never embedded inside images, and most image formats don't support embedding fonts.

    Is there a way to find out the name of the font used in an image?

    personally I just compare the fonts in an image to the fonts in my program...but the text in the link you posted is very similar to EngraversMT (with some enhancements..placing certain letters of the words at different levels)
