Unable to redact words of images embded in PDF file

Hi,
We are working on a PDF that contain boths text and images (these images are textual only e.g invoice). However only text portion is redacted successfully but same text of images are not at all redacted. We are using a paid license for redaction(java).
Please suggest if redaction word of images embeded within pdfs are supported.

Thanks,
Neeraj

We’re investigating this scenario. Your investigation ticket ID is REDACTIONJAVA-106. You’ll be notified in case of any update.

Hi Atir,
Please let us know if there is any update. This is show stopper for us. The groupdocs redaction product is not usable so far.

Thanks,
Neeraj

We’ve an update on this ticket, If you need an OCR solution (recognize text within an image among other texts and pictures), this is not yet supported by the API.
On the other hand, GroupDocs.Redaction for Java supports redaction of the embedded images in PDF or OpenOffice files. This example demonstrates how to redact areas of the embedded images in a DOC file. There is no difference for PDF. Clone or download full example project here.
