This application also includes an OCR element which can convert images to PDF files where you can edit the text content. This is a really cool feature which can convert an image content in to searchable, editable resizable.  I just tried to convert an image which was a screenshot of a webpage, I must say that I am pretty impressed with the result (Even though it failed to recognize the “ and ‘). Multiple languages are selected by the OCR element.
