    i have a scan of an old pic that i volunteered to edit the phone number in the pic with zero knowledge of how and if this con be done.i used a lexmark x4690 scanner and chose the 7.25 by 10.5 inch pic size for the area to be scanned. i did crop the photo just slightly and used the lexmark productivity studios one click aoutofix to spruce up the pic to my liking.i used a scan resolution of 150 dots per inch for a photo size of 3.2 megs.let me know if you prefer a different resolution. i dont own photoshop and hope this task can be accomplished with their free sample program or one of the other freebies available. i checked the box allowing other members to edit my photos so please have at the posted picture. the number i would like displayed is 675-7737.it keeps the 6 changeing the other 6 numbers.note there are two appearences of the phone number.

    Haha, oh yes... hard work, of course. Couldn't have done it without years of experience, my eyeballs sweating in front of complicated software all hours of the night... etc etc. :lmao:

    wow thanks awesome looks good analog universe. can i right click and save this image. they want to put this in a 8 by 10 frame so do you think the resolution of your edited photo will be too small, and therefore should i still look at taking the full resolution original photo and editing on my own to keep the resolution better for a 8 by 10
