Is it easy to take good pictures from a camera phone?
Camera phone customers are generally familiar with their device and with taking a picture of a friend – or a check! The Mobile Deposit app has been designed to be simple for a customer, but also robust enough to catch errors. After a customer takes images of both the front and back of a check, the Mobile Deposit app will analyze the images for quality and will provide you with feedback almost immediately. You will be notified if the images have been submitted successfully and that the transaction is complete. Alternatively, we may request that you retake the picture because there was a problem reading the check. For example, the user may have not taken a picture of the entire check or there was poor lighting, etc.
