We numerically analyze phase-sensitive parametric amplification and de-amplification of a multimode field representing a multi-pixel text image. We optimize pumping configuration and demonstrate that ∼10-dB gain is achievable with relatively moderate ∼10- kW total pump peak power available from compact pump sources.
