An early reply would be appriciate.
In that case you have to make some kind of recognition algorithm. Think of a way how a letter (or digit) is made up.
This is no easy stuff, and I can't help you more than that.
As you said, Text != Picture so there is no simple conversion...
if the text is inserted in proper order in the BMP file then u can try using softwares like Hexworkshop to figure out what is there in the file
I think he means its literally in the picture (not ascii hidden in the file). Some kind of text recognition program I guess, could write a simple one yourself of its not text on a picture background (could be more complicated that way).
or you could print it out, and then scan it in using OCR, failing that just copy it out :p
how about converting the bmp to vector form...I think Flash has that option, then you could cut and paste it from there.
Just do a search for ABBYY finereader. It is a text recognition program that uses OCR (optical character recognition). Its free!
