    I was wondering what would be the quickest, easiest way for me to transfer the text of this image onto a white canvas in Photoshop? I want to get rid of the gray background and replace it with white, but what is the best way? Thanks for the replies!

    1. Image > Adjust > Auto Levels

    2. Image > Adjust Threshold (find suitably balanced alising/crisp edge)

    3. Switch to channels palette Ctrl Click the red channel to produce a selection.

    4. Change back to the layers pallete and hit backspace. (you may or may not have to inverse the selection first)

    When I do that, it takes the color away and makes the text solid black. Am I doing something wrong or what

    Sorry, my mistake... you need to duplicate the layer first. (see screen shot)

    Much easier:
    1. Go to Image>Adjustments>Levels
    2. Select the white level eyedropper
    3. Click on gray.

    See screenshot.
