- Edge Detection & Distortion Correction

Automatically finds the edges of the physical document in the photo and recreates the image with its original colors and geometric proportions. The built-in algorithms enable it to correct geometric distortions introduced during the scanning process. This enables the user to accommodate pictures taken from a variety of angles.

- Color Correction

Special color correction algorithms enable the system to correct light distortions introduced via photo based scanning and compensate for shadow effects.

- Efficient Compression

The Smart PDF/A MRC algorithms creates highly compressed, low bandwidth files for easy sharing. The exported documents are 8-9 times smaller than an equivalent JPEG file saved while preserving 90% of the quality. This conversion enables the scanning of color documents without losing any text, signatures or seals.

Really great app. The way it finds the document I'm capturing is a sort of magic. And PDFs are much more convenient to read than images. Thanks!
