Full Text Indexing of Image Docs
Google Docs has now added OCR functions to allow users to import TIFF, JPEG and Image PDF files. This has been in the background for sometime in beta testing but now is available from the main import screen.
I also often get asked "How much storage does Google offer for their Document Manager?". Well if you use all Google Apps, that is Google Word Processor or convert Microsoft Word docs and store them as Google Apps docs then the storage is unlimited. If however you wish to store image files, PDFs, Excel or Docs then the limit is 1GB per user.
Remember photos can be stored in Picasa and Google will integrate this shortly into Google Apps to allow your same login to be used across these various other applications.
