Running Win 7. Is there OCR freeware that easily allows copy of a picture and paste into the conversion program. I have no scanner at this time. Want to convert stored images.

Any chance you have Office installed? OneNote will do this.

Wow. Very cool. Copy and paste picture, right click on picture, choose "Copy Text from Picture" option. – Doug Nov 1 '13 at 23:49

Google docs will run OCR on images uploaded as files or pdfs. It's not copy paste but it's free and pretty good.

If you don't have a pdf creator program, install PDF Creator from sourceforge to create the pdfs that you'll then upload to google docs.
