GT Text is a simple, lightweight tool specially designed to "extract" a text from a graphical file (image). GT Text supports several image extensions: BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, TIFF and PNG.
Beside the simple text extraction feature, GT Text also enables you to modify and edit an image using several useful tools and options.
First of all, you need to import an image. In order to do that, simply run GT Text.exe from your computer.
A browser will appear (similar with Windows explorer) and based on your files selection (you can switch between various image extensions), GT Text allows you to open an image or photo.
GT Text incorporates several useful features and options. Here is a short list with some of the most representative features available:
- Simple and intuitive interface
- User friendly
- Affordable price
- It supports various image extensions: BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, TIFF and PNG.
- Undo and redo tools
- Cut, copy and paste options
- Edit shade, edit outline and edit core options
- Image zoom: 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and "fit"
- Image info
- Pixel and region selection possibilities
- Invert image tool
- Direct print options
- Comprehensive "Help" section
- GT Text supports all major Windows platforms, including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
- Lightweight software (less than 10 MB)
As you can see, GT Text incorporates more than enough features and options to satisfy even the most exigent user. With a simple GPL license, GT Text is one of the cheapest applications of its type available at this moment.
Overall, GT Text is a great piece of software. However, during testing, I had some problem loading some JPEG images. These problems occurred during testing on a Windows XP with SP3 operating system. On the same system, but with Windows 7, GT Text worked perfectly.
Why is GT Text famous?
GT Text is famous because it is a handy tool that was designed in order to help you extract text from color images.
