Copy and Paste Text from a Photo with Your Phone

 Google Photos logo

First, you’ll need a photo on your device that contains text. This can be a photo of something in the real world or even a screenshot. Open Google Photos on your iPhoneiPad, or Android device and select the photo.

Select a photo.

Next, one of two things will happen. Google Photos may immediately detect text and a suggestion will say “Copy Text From Image.” Go ahead and tap that if you see it.

Select "Copy Text From Image."

If the text in the photo is not as obvious, you’ll have to initiate Google Lens yourself. Tap the “Lens” icon in the bottom toolbar.

Google Lens will scan the image and highlight any text it detects. You can now select that text just like you would anywhere else.

Select the highlighted text.

After you select the text you want, tap “Copy Text” from the bottom menu.

Tap "Copy Text."

That’s it! The selected text has now been copied to your clipboard! You can paste it anywhere you’d like, just as you would with normal text. This is a great time-saving tip for transferring text onto your phone. If you’re an iPhone owner and you don’t use Google Photos, Apple’s gallery app has a similar feature.
