Evernote doesn't know what a contrasting background is


Recommended Posts

This is more of an annoyance than anything else. I love the document camera. I use it all the time. EVERY SINGLE TIME I take a picture of a receipt or any other document, it warns me that for better results I need to use a contrasting background.

Heh, give me a break. It's a white piece of paper on a BLACK background. You don't get any more contrasting than that. There are borders around the frame so the black background is a little visible--perfect, super contrast.


It does this EVERY time. Has for months. Black background. Very dark brown background. Everything.


The Evernote doc cam has no idea what a contrasting background is, would be nice to stop getting nagged about that.

(At least the snaps do come out looking fine, no probs there).

Is the reminder popping up while you're taking the picture,  or afterward while it's being processed?  My experience is that when taking the picture I have no problem.  When I wait for the image to be processed and cropped the camera tends to wander elsewhere,  and that seems to be when the warning pops up...

For me, I am thinking it's usually during the capture and immediately afterward--picture is captured and immediately Evernote says "hey, you'll get a lot better results on that with a contrasting background."

HOWEVER, I believe it's getting better! I think I've taken 3 or 4 recent photos that didn't do this anymore! This may be fixed...
