(Archived) Thumbnails and Image Processing

Recommended Posts

Two things that I noticed using the windows native app vs. the web app:

1. The web app allows me to view thumbnails of my notes, but the windows app does not appear to do so. This would be an excellent addition to the native app, as that I how I prefer to view info.

2. I was trying out the text recognition portion by taking a photo of a business card and emailing it in from my phone. When it arrived, I could almost immediately do searches in the web app to find text embedded in the photo, which was quite impressive. I synchronized to the windows app, and it had to go through the process of indexing the image locally. This took quite some time to complete. Would it be possible, when sync'ing the data, to sent the index info with the image if it has been completed? This would prevent a duplication of effort.

One other question on the text recognition, actually. The business card I tested has a logo directly in front of the business name. For some reason this prevents it from recognizing the business name. The website for the business has the obligatory www. in front of it. All of this conspired to actually prevent me from being able to search on the company name. Is there some way to be able to search for a partial string? ie: %Company where % is the logo, can I do a search for "*mpa*" and have it locate the partial string in the pic?

Thanks!

1. We plan to add image thumbnails to the Windows client in the relatively near future.

2. In theory, if we've already done the image processing on the service (so that you can search on the web), we shouldn't be repeating that on the Windows client when you sync down ... the Windows client should get the recognition index data from the service if it's been completed up there. The exception would be if you synched down to Windows before the service had finished. Did you sync to Windows after you had successfully searched on the web, or before?

Thanks

I am not sure, actually. I will watch for it next time and can let you know. Currently I just leave the EN native app open, since it needs to be active for the web clipping to work. How frequently does it check for updates from the service?

Thanks!

In the options/preferences, you can specify how often you want it to sync ... including an option to never sync automatically.
