How to Scan a Document with your Phone
Follow these easy tips to provide digital copies of your required documents during the loan process.
Place the document on a dark, flat surface in a well-lit area. Make sure there are no shadows on the document.
Hover your phone over the document keeping your phone parallel to the floor. Don’t take the photo at an angle.
Get as close as possible to the document while keeping all 4 corners in the photo frame.
Make sure the photo is in focus. You may need to move the phone around slightly or tap the screen to focus.
Zoom in and review. Is everything in focus? Is all the info visible? Is the entire document in the photo?
Attach the picture to an email or text message. Send to your KTL loan officer or processor (whoever requested the info).
There′s an app for that!
If you have a multi-page document, it may be easier to use a scanning app.
