Here is something that is pretty cool… You can use your digital camera as a scanner with software called “Snapter Ice”… By taking a photo of a document and using the Snapter Ice software you can adjust and convert the output to various formats. I tested the software by taking a digital photo of a document, which contained a picture and various fonts. Using the Snapter Ice software I was able to make adjustments (i.e. skew adjustments) to the imperfections and ended up with a decently scanned PDF document. There is a 14 day trial with the software; however, after the 14 days, the software remains fully functional, with the exception that a light watermark image is stamped on the work you produce with the software. I usually focus on free and open source software; however, due to the nature of this software still being useable after its’ trial, I opted to post it… May help someone in a pinch…
