Snip is an amazing app built by Mathpix to help you extract LaTeX, MathML, basic table, and text from documents. It gives you the first 50 snips for free (100 snips when you sign up with a .edu or .ac.uk domain email) every single month.

With the help of MathpixOCR API and this supplementary app, you can now make up to 1000 OCR requests per month for free.

Image2LaTeX is a personal side project that keeps only core functions of the Snip such as convert images to certain LaTeX equation formats and OCR. For other advanced functions and unlimited snips, subscribe to the Snip for $4.99 per month.

Features

See the features section on MathpixOCR website.

New Features

  • API Usage stats (for reference only).
  • New TSV OCR format for Microsoft Excel and more.
  • New MathML OCR format for Microsoft Word and more.
  • New multiple choice, paragraphs, basic table OCRs, and more.
  • HTTP proxy support for making OCR request.

Requirements

  • Your API keys in your MathpixOCR dashboard (different from the Mathpix account used in the Snip app)

Run

Enter your API keys (without single quotes) at the first launch of this app.

To change your API keys, macOS and Windows users will find the API Credentials tab in the Preferences menu item by clicking this app's menu bar icon.

Linux user can open the Preferences panel by right-clicking anywhere inside the application.

Note, this app will not send your API keys to others except for MathpixOCR API server (see OCRRequestHelper.java to learn how your API keys are used).

Usage

macOS

Run Image2LaTeX.app.

Windows

Run Image2LaTeX.exe.

Linux

Run Image2LaTeX at Image2LaTeX-linux/bin/ or with:

./Image2LaTeX

Use your operating system's default methods (or other tools) to take a screenshot of equations or text (Shift (⇧)-Control (⌃)-Command (⌘)-4 on macOS by default).

Then, press the Space key to preview the screenshot. Or, press the Return or Enter key to send the OCR request directly.
