Font Licensing Query: Incorporating Text into Images for Mobile/Desktop Apps

I'm developing a commercial interactive app that includes numerous illustrations and 360-degree photos. I'm aware that embedding fonts in mobile/desktop apps is not allowed due to licensing restrictions.


However, I have a specific scenario to clarify.


I plan to create illustrations that incorporate text, with the font not being included in the app's code or resource folder. The idea is to merge the text with images, making it an integral part of the image itself. The font won't be stored in the app's code or resource folder.


Given this approach, would it be permissible to use the font in commercial mobile/desktop apps? Your guidance is much appreciated!
