Images may contain text, but in all cases I'm aware of, it's part of the image, so changing it gets complicated. The simplest image editing program I'm aware of is M$'s Paint. I'd expect it to do the job on everything above except 'Bar-B-Cutie', 'Your Name' (top right) and 'Big John's'. Those three need at least fancy fonts and transparent backgrounds.

As part of the clinic for this weekend's NMRA MER convention, I prepared some high resolution signs that the attendees can use to decorate their structure. This is a very large (300mb), high resolution PDF file: http://www.earlyrail.org/posters-2.pdf

Here's a low resolution sample:


The top row is posters from the 1920s, next row 1930s, then 1940s and finally 1950s, repeated several times over the paper. They work very well when printed at your highest resolution on photo quality paper. (HO scale, but probably usable for other scales, too.)

Speaking of women, gas and images:

My female dog glitters a lot, too.

I'm not in the States so it's difficult to find appropriate billboards but does anyone have examples of modern ones to post, or is it a copyright problem?

If you have access to Google, type in the ad you would like. Say, appliances, so type in
Appliance Signs. Then click on images. and current day modern signs should appear.
You could try Automobiles, motorcycles or anything you have in mind. If you type in,
Vintage, or nostalgic, older signs will appear.....Hope this helps....
