1) it's a copyrighted image...so....that means legally you can't tamper with it except for personal or artistic (derivative) use where there is no resale of any type at all.


if I wanted to play with it for personal use, such as making a cake for personal relative where it is a gift to them...

I'd use PhotoFiltre (free download) which would let me erase all that stuff very easily. It even let's you add text, BUT...

dropping the cleaned up pic into MS Publisher lets you add text far more easily.

then you can export it as a jpg.

of course, if you have Photoshop, well then nigh to anything is possible.

That's what I thought.I will just have to tell her that I can't delete anything in the picture...I have been playing with it in my edible image programs but there is nothing that will allow you to crop apart a picture like that...I'll have to let her know!!t

Thanks Doug!!!

Since it's a copyrited image you can't even sell it the way it is.

but...just to show you what could be done (with appropriate ruining so it can't be used!)

this, even the text, was done in PhotoFiltre (free!)

Nah..I don't even want to fool around with a copyrighted image like that.I emailed her to say it can't be done...I don't have such programs or even know how to use them that way so I'll tell her to choose something else.
