There is a magazine, which has done a photoshoot of a celebrity and I would like to get the photos, but without all the text/articles on them. Now, on the magazine’s official site, it allows you to download the entire magazine as a .pdf file. When I open the .pdf file, it allows me to highlight the text, but it doesn’t allow me to delete it. However, is there a computer program, which WOULD allow me to remove the text?

PDF files are specifically designed to prevent what you want to do. They are intended as a final document format, and they are made difficult to modify to prevent people from stealing copyrighted content.
There are some third-party products that let you make changes to PDFs and sometimes extra material from them. Adobe Acrobat Professional (which isn’t free) lets you make limited changes to PDFs if you have permission to do so.
