    Hi Hemanth,

    What are you trying to accomplish by doing this?
    Are there any OCR’s which you might be able to use to pull the characters out of your image?




    Yes Dave that is correct. I am looking for taking Images and storing the Image and the characters recognized in Hive for reporting


    Hi Hemanth,

    You will need to use an OCR or 3rd party application to process the images before you put them into Hive.
