    The Google Lens app description is interesting, but I do not find the app itself to be exactly intuitive. Is there a help/tutorial anywhere?

    Many thanks. The web page is heavy on benefits, but very light on how to obtain them! However, I have experimented and now have a better understanding of operation. Thanks again.
