method/program for searching text in jpg files

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello,

 

i have a folder of 5,500 tables and graphs as jpg files and i want to be able to search for specific tables/graphs by word. 

 

so far using the search function for windows explorer is not working 

 

i found that inserting the images into OneNote did allow me to search the images by text - however is not a practical way of proceeding because there are so many files and it takes very long to load

 

is there another way i can say e.g. type in some text using a specific method/program and have all the tables and graphs with those words show up?

 

thanks in advance

how about merging all 5500 images in Adobe Acrobat and letting OCR do its thing? Not sure if this is better or worse than the onenote solution ahaha

Notepad++ or UltraEdit have a find in files function that works really great and fast.

thanks for that suggestion. i tried both programs and they both dont seem to detect key words like it does in OneNote (they skip over images with the word i am looking for - but the text in those images can be searched in oneNote)
