A few hours ago we told you about a big news that has been integrated into Google Photos in the form of a much more powerful video editor to apply filters and make changes to recorded clips directly from the Google app. Photos on your mobile.

How to copy texts from a photo
The Google Lens recognition technology It has been with us for many years and has been integrated into Google Photos, being able to use it, for example, to recognize objects or find specific or simulated products on the Internet.
Now this function also allows you to copy text from an image. That is, if you have a photo that has text on it or, for example, you took a photo of a business card, a page from a book or the label of a product, Google Photos will recognize it and will automatically indicate at the bottom the message “Copy text from image”.
It will analyze the image again and all the text will be highlighted, being able to select what we want, copy it and bring it to any other place, like a notes or messaging app.
If the button does not appear Copy text from image, we can also force it by pressing the Goal button (next to the delete icon) and also copy the text or even translate it automatically.
We have tested and the Google Photos OCR recognition It already appears in Android and iOS, even in the web version, which is even more useful when working with documents and copying fragments. Plus, it works well and recognizes large extensions of text even when the edges are not completely straight (like the pages of a book) or there is a slight distortion or blur in the corners.
