Love this tip using the ever-wonderful app Google Keep – to instantly capture the editable text from an image in a photo – follow these steps:

  1. Open up Google Keep on your phone or tablet.
  2. Tap the ‘image’ icon to create a new note – this will launch the camera, or give you the option to select a photo
  3. Once the image appears inside the Google Keep note, tap it. You should see a little paintbrush and 3 dots top right.
  4. You will see an option called ‘Grab image text’ appear (it may not be instant, so be patient).
  5. Tap that, voila! The words in the image will appear in the body of the Keep note!”
