- Are you having a hard time getting a good photo of a document?
Here are the most common mistakes that make it hard to take a good photo.
Having a shadow on the document
Problem: Shadows keep the orange box from locating the edges of the page
Solution: Make sure the lighting is directly over the page with no shadows on your paper
Not getting all of the edges of the page in the orange box
Problem: The app cannot find the edges if they are not all inside the white framed box
Solution: Move the camera back until all 4 edges of the pages are well within the orange box
When you have multiple pages on top of each other
Problem: The app cannot detect which edge goes with the page you are trying to get a photo
Solution: Take a photo of one page at a time with a dark contrasting background.
So what does a good photo look like?
