How to.. Large image and text over image?

L.S.,

(just started using LaTeX 4 months ago)
I have written my thesis and it's almost ready to be printed, but I
have two problems:
For my titlepage I've made an image which covers 98% of an A4-paper
(size used to print my thesis on).
The first problem is about the size of the image: how do I get the
image to be correctly centered on the title-page. I've tryed serveral
things, but none seemed to help.
The second problem is that over the image text will have to be
displayed and printed. The image is a background-image, so to say. How
can I do this?

Thank for your help, Koos

Greetings Koos - 

I think the wallpaper package on CTAN 
(http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/macros/latex2e/contrib/wallpaper/) will do 
everything you need.  It allows you to both center & tile backgrounds and 
display text over them.  See the examples/ directory in the package.

HTH.

Text IN an Image To Straight Text?
Hi. (I'm not sure where to ask this so I'm trying a few newsgroups) I have some .jpg's of text documents. Is there a utility which will work like OCR in a scanner, helping to convert the text WITHIN the image to straight text? I don't have a printer working at the moment, or I'd print the .jpg's and then scan them using OCR. (The format doesn't necessarily have to be .jpg) Thanks in advance for any help GP Yes, if the image is not to bad a pic (not much noise and all that).

Replace text with image in text widget
I'm trying to replace an emoticon with an actual image in a text widget. I know I'm not doing this correctly: the sample code below inserts two images randomly and seems to garble the text in other ways. The idea is to have two emoticons (one on each line) and replace them with an image, nothing more. Can anyone take a look and suggest how I might get this to work? Thanks. --- SPfHZvvOGvfQEvfGdvjQE/rNMfrOMfrNPfvQHfzQHfjQLfrNRvjQL/vRJfzRJvrOWvbMh/3VHPfM h/3WHPzVMP7XF/zVMfrPdv7YGP7YG/7YHPzWPPzWPfvUVP7ZHf7ZIPvWVf7aJv7aJ/7bJv7bM/7b NP7cLf7dMPvXeP7dNvrVlv7eOPrWlvvaevrYmP7gRP7gRf7gRv7i...

How can I replace a large image with other large images triggered from small image icons, mouse-overs or whatever???
I'm creating an ad for eBay and want to keep the page condensed. I have 6 images - different views of an antique lap steel guitar - that need to show superb detail. I have cropped the images to take up a full webpage width. However, I don't want to put all six images on the page. I thought I could use icons as the trigger for displaying the images one by one. I cropped the six images down to small (but identifiable) icons. Is there a way I put the first full sized image on the page and go through all the other images by mouseover or clicking on the icons? I just want...

Text Over an Image?
Hi, Is it possible using JavaScript to write text over an image? I know this would be possible by using a HTML table and using the image as a background but this is undesired.

Image with text.
First off, I don't have the image toolbox, so I'm using only functions built into the base version 5.3. I'm playing with combining a bunch of images into one really big one. The images all need to be scaled differently (which is why I'm not just trying to do this in Photoshop). This is easy enough to do: M=imread(...) on each image, manipulate the M matrix and fit it into the right place in a larger MM matrix. I can then output a larger image file with imwrite. But here's my problem: I want to add some text to the image. At a large number of places, specified exactl...
