Yea... One of the easiest ways is: Knowing the (x,y) size of the graph in pixels, convert pixel lengths to x and y scales. Paste the picture into Mathematica. Make sure the picture is selected, the border will have dotted lines if that is true. If it isn't selected, click on it once. Now press down the CTRL key. Follow one of the lines with the mouse, clicking at regular intervals. Release the CTRL key. Choose Edit - Copy. Click in an empty notebook area. Choose Edit - Paste. You will see a list of points. It is up to you to convert these pixel locations into the function's domain and range. After that you might interpolate the list of points so that you can plot or integrate them. The other curve may be treated in the same manner.
