I'm not sure this is specifically an Android topic, but it seemed like the most applicable place to put it.

I recently purchased an Evernote edition Moleskine notebook. I've scanned a couple of pages with my Android phone, and they're not great quality. Sure, the page is absolutely straight, thanks to the grid lines, but the text is sort of washed out.

I've attached two images to this post, one is just a straight, unprocessed photo of a page, and the other is the Evernote-processed scan. Both were taken in the same location, minutes apart, in the same lighting conditions. My handwriting is almost illegible as it is, but you can see how the processing makes it worse. In the 4th line down, you can even see where the second "s" has completely disappeared from the word, "suggested".

Does anyone have any suggestions for helping Evernote take better pictures of the Evernote edition notebook?

Hi.  Only the standard advice I'm afraid - you need black ink,  good light and the lens held square on to the page from a reasonable height.  What phone are you taking the pictures with?  And is this the Evernote Android document camera?  See - Capture pages using the Evernote camera

Thank you for the suggestions and the link.

Ink is black.

Lighting was a combination of florescent overhead lighting and midday sunlight from a window less than 3 feed away.

Lens position was square on the page in all axes (as seen in the non-processed example), and the page pretty much filled the frame.

The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7.

It is the Evernote Android document camera.

Hmmn.  I can only suggest you contact support directly if you can,  or message them on Twitter

The standard advice for all mobile device problems is to uninstall / restart / reinstall which doesn't exactly sound applicable here,  but you may want to try that just in case...
