A jpg file does not contain text. While you may see text displayed, its actually a picture file.


I'm sure you understand that "A jpg file does not contain text".

So, I'm just going to suggest you look in to the various OCR (Optical Character Recognition) applications. They interpret text embedded in images. Many of these applications take scanned input (since scanning is actually creating a digital image); so you may have to print, then scan the document once you get the software. Applications like, Adobe Acrobat, allow you to convert the jpeg to a pdf, then you can manipulate any recognizable text.

This is advanced technology; so these applications can be pricey. But depending on your needs, you may be able to get away with some of the free ocr options. See the links below


Here's a link that compares a few of the commercial options:


As i know jpg file can not add text, the only way you can add is clink mouse on the right and click edit and click on A letter to add text

Hello opbasu. I can offer a specific solution described by frantzfanon to you.
Firstly, convert your JPEG file to PDF by the library "PDF Vision .Net" or use online-service for this. Next, take PDF and convert it to rtf by "PDF Focus .Net" (or online-service). Thats all! :) Below find the code if you'll decide to use libraries.

  • Convert JPG file to PDF file in C#:

    SautinSoft.PdfVision v = new SautinSoft.PdfVision()
        int result = v.ConvertImageFileToPDFFile("C:\CoolImage.jpg", "C:\Result.pdf");
        if (result==0)
  • PDF file to Word file in C#:

     SautinSoft.PdfFocus f = new SautinSoft.PdfFocus();
            if (f.PageCount > 0)
                int result = f.ToWord(@"d:\Hippopotamus.rtf");
