How to edit scans?

Scan Hero app can also help you perform simple editing functions and allows you to modify the original scan. Let's talk in more detail about these useful tools.

In order to access Edit mode, open the app, find the document you need to edit and tap it. Then tap the Edit button in the top left corner to enter the mode.

Note: the document may contain various pages so be advised that modifications will be applied only to the page you currently see on the screen (in our example, it's a page 1/1).



These are the following editing functions available to you:

I.Tap Filters to make changes in a document.



a) Filtres. Choose one of the preset filters and apply them to the original image.


b) Brightness. You can change the brightness of the scan by moving the slider below it right (to increase) and left (to decrease).



c) Rotate. If necessary, rotate the image using the buttons on the sides (#1 to turn right and #2 to turn left).


d) Edit Frame function allows you to crop the scan by dragging the corners of the green frame.


II. Reorder pages: long tap on a page, move it to the necessary position and release.
