Is there an OSM label layer available? This same question was asked 7 years ago. I neither see such a layer in the OpenLayers plugin nor QuickMapServices.
Like this example of Wilmington, IL United States? Which is using vector data rather than raster images.
This is using the QGIS Plugin OSMDownloader available in QGIS plugins
- Select your area of interest
- Save to a folder
- It will download the data in the format for QGIS and set the layers
The Styles will be applied and you can then tinker with the settings and rules for labelling items of interest - like buildings here.
