Working in Jira on my M1 Mac mini just now, searching in the page (issue) I was on using Safari, Safari searched for text in an image. I realize Apple’s been adding this to Macs and iPhones and iPads for a while now, but this is the first time I’ve personally found image text recognition useful. Awesome!
My Mac mini is running macOS Monterey version 12.4.
A few minutes ago, I felt look looking for Mac productivity software. My first thought was MacWorld’s utility reviews. They’re the best. So I went to MacWorld.com. I found this review of StopTheMadness. Five stars and MacWorld Editors’ Choice? I’m in.
I went to the App Store and paid my ten bucks. That’s all the information I need —I’m in. I don’t expect to use this a lot, but it is right up my alley.
What drives me the most crazy is sites that disable saving a photo to my computer. We will see if this helps with that occasional but infuriating problem, but I did not see “enable image download” on its list of checkboxes.
Note: I run into the problem of not being able to save an image from an article more on Apple News than on websites. I’d like a solution for that the most.
