Of course, for optimal photo quality, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
// Good light
A good exposure is the be-all and end-all. It should be neither too dark nor too bright. Especially when there is a lot of sunshine, it is advisable to avoid shadows on the subject.
Tip: Activate your phone's flash to better illuminate a dark subject when taking photos. This way you can make sure the subject is clearly visible.
// Bad light
Poor lighting conditions are a thing of the past thanks to our built-in flash function.
To do this, open the "Camera" function in the bottom bar of the app. You are now in scan mode and can activate or deactivate the camera light on your smartphone by tapping on the flash icon .
Note: Using the exposure function further reduces the phone's battery life.
// Good angle
For the best recognition, you should photograph the weed or disease exactly from above - that is, at a 90-degree angle. This way, the details are best visible and you avoid distortions. For this purpose, simply leave the weeds standing and do not pull them out of the ground.
// Good distance
For the best result, the object should be in the foreground. If there are many disturbing factors, such as other leaves or plants in the picture, it will be difficult for the image recognition. So for weeds, try to have only soil in the background. To identify diseases, you can for example take the affected leaf of the plant in your hand to stabilize it a bit and bring it into the foreground.
// Good quality
Shaky and unfocused images significantly affect image recognition. To prevent this, tap the weed once - the object will then be focused automatically.
