What are the different filters available?

Genius Scan attempts to detect the best filter to apply to your document, but you can always change it. Here are a few tips on which filter to use:

Filter What Genius Scan does Good for …
None No filter will be applied You want to keep the original untouched.
Black and White Genius Scan clears up the background and turn the scan into black and white. Mostly black and white documents such as receipts, contracts, official documents etc.
Color Genius Scan clears up the background but keeps the colors. Mostly black and white documents with some color: documents with letterheads, logos, whiteboards…
Photo Genius Scan bumps up the colors so that the photo looks very vivid. Postcards, photographs, paintings…
