Hello,

Running High Sierra, the latest version. (iMac)

I have used the Mac App PREVIEW to add some text to a lot of photos I have.
Works very well, and is simple to add text to photos.
All sorts of options to select the text type, position of, etc.
Works quite well.

But-

After doing a Save, and then re-opening the photo in Preview, I can find absolutely
no way to edit the text that I added previously to the photo.

Tried just about everything.

Is it that being a .pdf, I need, now, a pdf "editor" to edit the text ?

Or, am I just missing something, as usual ?

BTW: The "Text Selection Button" does not show on either of the two menu strips at the top.

Thanks,
B.

Here are the results of a google search of "Free Mac software for editing PDF documents/files":

https://www.google.com/search?q=Free+Mac+software+for+editing+PDF+documents/files&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS628US629&oq=Free+Mac+software+for+editing+PDF+documents/files&aqs=chrome..69i57.23400j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Some of those links are for free trials of such software. You'll need to "sift" through those links to find ones that are truly free. Not sure, though, how good such ones are. If you find any, maybe then do a google search to see if there are any reviews.

That's right, you can't. The text is now part of the PDF and not a separate item.
