    I still don't understand what the OP wants - they appear to be scrolling web pages (not images?) - so why can't they copy & paste the text? Or save the complete page and copy from the source (if it isn't a load of optimised java script). They have been asked for an example, but not supplied one yet.

    OP is using Nimbus Screenshot to save scrolling capture as an image.

    What isn't clear: Is OCR required to extract text from an image like this?

    Agree with above - OP needs to be a bit more descriptive and definitive about requirements. Most of the replies in this thread have been based on what the respondents assume the OP means.

    OP, do you want ...
    - text from within an existing whole image (pre-capture, as it were), as exampled by @Callender above
    - text from a web page captured by Nimbus but saved as (turned into) a .png image.

    If the former, then I am not sure that there is any such software that can extract the text from an image, and OCR it

    If the latter, then Nimbus is not the appropriate resource to be using, anyway.

    Well, I thought my ORIGINAL POST explained it all, but I guess I can elaborate.
    My wife is gets grocery's from a Kroger based store. She adds items ONLINE and then has a time to pick them up. They bring them out and load the car. OK, no problem. When she looks ONLINE she gets a long detailed list that can go several WEB pages long with MANY details and IMAGES. Yes, I use NIMBUS to SCROLL this and it saves as a PNG. Nimbus lets us scroll and save.

    So, what she wants is this list, now a nice PNG from Nimbus, to be edited so the images and blank lines can be removed. Without doing this, it can be MANY pages of stuff if printed. If the Images can be removed and the resulting TEXT can be edited, she can remove the blank lines and print this list on ONE PAGE. This is good as she can see the price and item when the person who brings it to her car and mentions the substitutions and she can then see what she originally wanted and the price of the substitution. For example she ordered 500 everyday napkins for $3.49 and they gave her a pack for $3.99 but it only had 80!

    Anyway, I did not think this would be so hard but perhaps I/We have spent too much time on this already.

    I do want to thank everyone. Also, I did try this with Google Drive but it just does not edit the blank lines, etc very well .

    OK, let me see if I can attach this PNG...Free Program to convert PNG to Text?-screenshot-www.fredmeyer.com-2020.06.14-11_51_17.png

    Does copy/ paste work on that list when it's open in the browser?

    If so just copy into a text editor or spreadsheet.

    Well, the copy will not work when in the browser for that site as it needs to scroll, which is why I use Nimbus.

    Well I can copy all text in windows that needs to be scrolled no problem as described in an earlier post.

    Anyway the best I can do with OCR on the image that you uploaded is to capture in sections.

    Result attached.
