How to import photos & files

It is possible to import PDF documents and photos in Genius Scan, one by one or in batch.

If you can't find the desired Photos, tap the button in the top-right corner and select the Images menu.

Genius Scan instantly scan the imported file to detect a document and suggest some image enhancements (as it would if you captured the document from the camera)

Import multiple files at once
