Converting Image to "Document" in Desktop

Idea

I love that you can convert a image/photo to a "document" in the mobile app - it cleans up the background, gets rid of glare, and makes it much more readable. Is there a way to run this conversion on pre-existing photos of notebooks, whiteboard, etc. that you add using the desktop app?

Hi.  Short of taking a new picture of the original,  or displaying the note on one monitor and taking a new picture of the screen on a mobile,  I can't think of a way to re-process an existing picture.  It would be a good feature to have though..

+1 for the needed feature.

@deyawper  @gazumped  Since you seem to understand this discussion, can you explain what is meant by type "document".  I'm not seeing it as a Mac thing

I assumed it was the difference between the various image options in a mobile camera - 'picture' / 'document' / 'business card' - each of which is dealt with in a different way.  In this case 'document' means cropping the image to page edges,  adjusting the exposure for optimum OCR,  and,  well..  OCR..

Thanks, I got sidetracked by the file type

Was this ever taken on as a feature? 

Nope - not yet,  anyway.  I believe Google Docs will do something similar if you need it...
