How To Easily Copy Text From Images?

By default no web browser or operating system enables you to copy text printed over the images. In this tutorial we will show you how you can apply the state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image on web so that you can easily highlight, copy, edit, search or translate text printed over them.

Project Naptha, automatically enables you to highlight as well as copy and paste or edit and translate the text formerly trapped within an image. Simply add its Google Chrome extension in your Chrome and Chromium browser and start playing.

All you have to do is right-click any image (e on any webpage) and the extension will be extracting the text from that image so that you can copy-paste and reuse it on some other application.


This works with images, scanned documents, memes and also comic strips. The best thing is even if you have captured anything from a magazine or newspaper using your camera, you save it to your Dropbox and then extract its text very easily.

Sometime there could be some minor spelling mistakes but still it is a big time saver because as now you don’t have to do manual transcribing.

This is not all,


The extension even allows you to edit the image text, simply copy the image to your clipboard and also you can remove the words from the image.
