all you need to do is to convert the 'extension' for example if the pic is called pic.jpg right clik it then clik 'rename' and change it to pic.txt then you'll have a txt file full of weird characters........you can easily reconvert it to a jpg using the same sysetm.....

Not sure what substance drcspy is using today, but that suggestion will not get the image text OCR'd..

Try this one. It accepts .jpg etc.

lol godfather..............nah well actually is only coffee at this stage......anyway perhaps I misunderstood the question but all I did to test my theory was geta .jpg and change it to a .txt......then when you open it up it'll come up as text alright.......then you can change it back to a .jpg easy........
