ClipDrop, a new application that allows your phone’s camera to quickly capture objects from your environment and place them in desktop applications. Now available to try. It’s a neat evolution of augmented reality, making the physical world digital, instead of projecting digital images to the world around you. The demo app’s promotional videos show that it is able to photograph everything from plants to televisions and then quickly import it into documents as cropped objects.

Digne says the tool lets you import images and even text from books, for example, to A variety of programs and websites, Including Photoshop (where ClipDrop has a plug-in available to allow objects to be dropped as a new layer with an adjustable mask), Google Docs, PowerPoint, Figma, Canva, and Pitch. Of course, you can also just the app to take pictures of everyday things around you to share as you normally would inside iOS and Android.

In addition to the iOS and Android applications, the program is also available for Windows and macOS, allowing you to capture images and text from the desktop or the web and quickly import them into documents.

Developers Cyril Diane and Jonathan Blanchett Tell Gizmodo They have over 100,000 people on their beta waiting list wanting to try the program, and have spent the last few months converting this early demo into a commercial product.

Although ClipDrop is now available to the public, Diagne cautions that it is still in beta and that users should expect some ‘Bugs and rough edges.“ When we tried it for ourselves, we found it did a good job of picking items out from a busy office with the iPhone X, though. Gizmodo Reports suggest it might get confused every now and then due to shadows or objects crowded near each other.
