Introduction to Image to Text Tool

Upload images to this tool to extraxt text using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. You can see the extracted text, copy it to the clipboard or download it as a text file. The tool supports various image formats including JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, and WebP.

The tool uses the Tesseract.js library to process images and extract text. Tesseract.js is a pure JavaScript port of the popular Tesseract OCR engine.

Mastering the Image to Text Tool

  • Choose Languages - This tool supports multiple languages for text extraction. Select the languages you want to extract text in by clicking on the globe icon and selecting the desired languages. If you are unsure, leave the default language settings as they are (English).
  • Upload Images - Drag and drop images or click to select images from your device. The images will be processed one by one.
  • Upload from URL - Enter the URL of an image and hit the Enter key to process the image. The image will be downloaded and processed.
  • Choose Display Options - You can choose to display each file under its own tab or as a single list. The tabs will be named after the file names.
  • Removing - You can remove any of the results by clicking on the x icon under each file. To remove all results, click the Remove All button.
  • Download Text - Click the download all button to save the extracted text from all the files as individual text files on your device. Click the download icon under each file to download the extracted text of that file as a text file.
  • Copy Text - Click the copy all button to copy the extracted text from all the files. Click the copy icon under each file to copy the extracted text of that file.

Tesseract.js: Image to Text Conversion

Tesseract.js is a pure JavaScript implementation of the Tesseract OCR (Optical Character Recognition) engine, originally developed by HP and now maintained by Google. It enables the extraction of textual content from images and provides a versatile solution for OCR tasks directly in the browser or on Node.js platforms.

This tool processes images using the Tesseract.js library, handling them one at a time to ensure accuracy and efficiency. Supported image formats include JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, and WebP, making it adaptable to various user needs and source materials.

The OCR process involves several steps, starting with pre-processing the image to enhance text readability. This may include converting to grayscale, adjusting brightness and contrast, and applying filters. Tesseract.js then uses machine learning algorithms to detect and recognize characters and words within the image.

One of the significant advantages of Tesseract.js is its ability to be trained with additional fonts and languages, enhancing its versatility across different text formats and linguistic content. The library supports numerous languages and provides options to customize processing for specific use cases.

It's important to note that while Tesseract.js is powerful, the accuracy of text recognition can vary depending on the quality of the input image and the complexity of the text layout. Optimal results are typically achieved with high-contrast, high-resolution images with minimal noise.


We are Lime Convert

Lime Convert was created after we found ourselves wanting something more out of the free conversion tools that we were using online. The tools were either too simple or too cluttered and convoluted. We wanted something that was highly functional and simple on the surface, yet customizable and powerful underneath. We wanted a tool that was extremely easy to use but still had all the features we needed and more.

Less Is More Expanded. Lime Convert is designed around these principles. We hope you ❤️ it.
