Picture areas mark the pictures contained in your document. You can also use picture areas to select any text fragments that you want treated as pictures (ABBYY FineReader will not perform OCR on these areas). If the program fails to detect a picture automatically, use the Picture tool to draw a picture area around the picture manually.
You can change the type of any area to Picture by right-clicking inside the area and selecting Change Area Type>Picture.
For details, see Adjusting Area Types and Area Borders.
