Google has deployed Google Lens image recognition software on the web version of Google Images, so that the text can be copied and pasted directly from an image saved in the service

While Google Lens is now a feature widely integrated into our mobile phones, this image recognition software is still missing from our computers, a gap now filled by the company Mountain View which extends its tool to the Web version of Google Photos 9to5Google reports

Google Photos: finally, a more powerful video editor

The idea is simple: from an image saved in Google's image service, Google Lens can locate and extract text using optical character recognition (OCR) which you can then select, copy and paste completely or only partially

Very recently, Google Lens has integrated the Google Photos app on smartphones with a feature that specifically analyzes text from a saved image, and why not, copy it to a computer but the new functionality of the web version goes further than this option is already available in Google Images This is how the editorial team was able to test its capabilities, to obtain a very convincing result after our first tests By importing, for example, a screenshot of a press article, Google Lens succeeds with alarming ease in its role

In a more complex situation – a page of a book where the lines are closer together and the words are less readable – the tool also does it with an excellent degree on the other hand, it is limited to one page of the book We failed to make it work with an image showing the left and right page


To use it, just click on the contextual button “Copy text from image” that appears at the top center of your image. This button is accompanied by the Google Lens icon by clicking on it with the cursor. Google extracts the text from it and opens a panel where you can copy the phrases that interest you

In the future “Raise your head!”: Google wants to warn you when you are using your smartphone while you are walking

You are then free to send it to a friend, a colleague or a member of your family via the various communication channels (mail and instant messaging) installed on your computer, or paste it into a specific document. In short, a tool that can be useful in a specific situation. / p>
