Photos Search Text
iOS Universal Photography
Photos Search can image process (or scan) the photos in your photos library for the purpose of finding text. It uses Text Recognition software to find text in a photo. You can then search for text in your photos.
You can scan a selected time period (7 days, 30 days, 6 months etc.) or scan all your photos. Once a photo has been processed, you will not have to scan it again, so after a while you will have processed your complete photos library and it will be ready to be searched instantaneously.
Photos Search can extract the text from any photo and will allow you to copy the text. It will also detect links, phone numbers, calendar events etc.
Photos Search integrates with Maps to show you the physical location where the photo has been taken.
You can also use Photos Search to scan an individual photo, a photo of a paper document or a screen shot.
Photos Search includes a Photos Editing Extension. With this extension you can extract text from any photo in Photos through the extension feature of Photos. Just Edit a photo in Photos and call on the Photos Search extension to extract all the text from the photo.
A bundle version that includes a macOS version is also available.
Faster typing in the All Photos section and several bugs fixed.
