i'll explain.

when Unicode Image Maker itself creates an image file, it stores the original text in the image.
so if you open an image file it has made previously (or if you drag and drop the image into the program),
it should be able to recover the original text.

but the function has no effect unless the image itself was created with Unicode Image Maker.

does that make sense?

There are some very good programs that do that (Tomos in the post above you lists one).

Unicode Image Maker is a more unusual program which is designed to make a graphic image that looks like a unicode text string formatted exactly the way you want it to be -- it's useful if you want to display some non-english text in a program or on a web page by using an image.
