There are a lot of tools and apps like google Lens that let you copy text from an image and use it wherever you want on Android, iOS and PC. Here are the step-by-step procedure on how to that.

Here, we have mentioned the steps through which you can copy the text from photos on Android, iPhone & PC

  • Go to “Google Lens” app
  • Open the said image
  • Swipe up and select the required image you want to copy text from
  • Long press on the text you want to copy and select the length
  • Click on the “Copy Text” option at the bottom of the screen

Google Photos web

  • Open the browser
  • Go to Google Photos web and sign in to your account
  • Select and open the image with text
  • Click on the “Copy Text from Image” option placed at the top right corner.
  • The option pops up only if there is text in the photo
