Guidelines for taking good pictures
Make sure all images satisfy the following conditions:
Take pictures in well-lit areas. Sunlight or good artificial light is satisfactory, as long as there is enough light for good visibility.
No Deep Shadows
Avoid shadows such as those created by holding the camera between the check and the light source, especially if they cover only part of the check, creating strong contrast.
One Check at a Time
Only the check being captured should be visible in the picture so that the software can find it against the background.
Use Dark or At Least Mostly Monochrome Background
The background should be of a uniform, preferably darker color, especially if the check itself is light colored. The purpose is to make sure the software can find and crop the check from the rest of the image.
No Other Objects in the View Window
Avoid having other objects in the frame, such as other papers, pens, books – anything other than the check and a uniform background.
Entire Check Visible
Make sure the check is not cut off by the edge of the view window, a deep shadow, or other objects. All four corners need to be visible.
Very important! Make sure the image is sharp and focused. For some cameras (i.e. IPhone), this means pulling back from the check, as being too close will cause the image to blur.
Avoid Excessive Angles
Hold the camera as close to directly above the check as possible without casting shadows over it. Mobile Deposit software will successfully detect and correct images taken at angles up to approx. 40 degrees from vertical, which is enough to hold the camera comfortably while taking the picture.
