Import pictures and files (PDF, JPEG...)

In Genius Scan, you can import documents (PDF, JPEG and PNG) from other applications. Note that it is also possible to import documents from cloud services such as Dropbox or iCloud Drive by following the same procedure.

iOS

Import one or multiple JPEG files

1

Tap the orange + button (tip: you can long press the + button to skip step 2)

2
Tap Photos to access your JPEG files (or tap Files if they're located in this folder)

3
In this example, in Photos, select an album, select one or multiple pictures, and tap Choose. Genius Scan will create a document with all the pictures you selected.

Import JPEG or PDF files from third-party apps

1

Locate the document in your favorite application. Here, it's located in Gmail.

2

Select the option to open the document with Genius Scan (it might be located in the horizontal list or in More...).

3

Genius Scan will import the file as a new document.

Genius Scan will display a loading screen. Depending on how large the document is, this can be instantaneous or take a few seconds.

Android

Import one or multiple JPEG or PDF files from the file picker

The file picker interface might look and work differently depending on your device brand and Android version.

1
Tap the Import button.

2
Select a single JPEG or PDF document. If you can't find the desired file, tap the button in the top-left corner to browse the folders.

3

If you want to import multiple files and files at once, you can do a long-press to enable multiple file selection, tap on all the files you want to import and tap Open.

Import JPEG or PDF files using another file browser

You can also use a third-party file browser instead of the default picker:

1
Tap the button in the top-left corner of your file browser to access the sidebar.

2
Select the desired application among the ones installed on your device.

Import JPEG or PDF files from third-party apps

1
Open a third-party app ( for this example, we used a Genius Scan screenshot located in Google Photos), select the document, and tap the Share button.

2
Tap  Genius Scan to get your file scanned on the fly.
