I have an image which is a scanned copy of a page, in .tiff format. As per my research, UiPath doesn’t support tiff format - so i converted it manually to jpg, using it as an input. As it is a image, I am using screen scrapping along with Google OCR - the quality is not as expected, but they are at an acceptable level. Now, the issues that I am facing are as mentioned below.

  1. While working with screen scraping, I have done the complete process of scrapping on one system. When I move it to another system, I am getting below error. Error Image

  2. Is there a better way to get the text from the image?

The reason for error might be that  UiPath looks for a window with the exact title your-file-name.tif

This will always fail when you open another image with a different name.

 

 Dont try to open the image in image viewe but try to load in a variable of System.Drawing.Image. Then you can  use the Google Cloud OCR activity to perform OCR, storing the words and OCR text in two dedicated variables.
