    OCR From Google Photos

    Today I was reading old printed text, no file, my own printed text

    Looked for OCR

    Seems Google just added OCR this week to Google Photos

    This is very important to any Artist/Photographer

    I've used it in google photos for quite a while to find documents photographed and photos with text in the photo... It finds text from signs, pictures of business cards, document, screenshots, anywhere really.

    Here's look for stop or kodak in my photos... It even read kodak off the barrel of the AE.

    The AI stuff for organizing/discovering photo content would be a wishful and good next step for adobe lightroom or a competitor... It'd be nice to cut down on the manual tag work for organizing.
