comment How to give users feedback about rejected input?
@Mohit The photos are taken in Macro mode, in which focus is fixed to the nearest point, it's up to the user to position the camera so that the object is in focus.

@JonW The whole raison d'être is that we can pre-check before uploading!

Unfortunately, our pre-processing takes too long to do in real-time. Adopting this approach would drop the preview frame-rate to about 0.5 fps, arguably worse UX.

@AndroidHustle It's automatic. It takes a couple of seconds, so can't happen in real time. I can't elaborate as to what we're doing I'm afraid, but if the pre-check fails, the server-side processing will fail.

@MattObee Yes, usually it's a focus problem.

I'd always wondered what all that gunk is in the gmail url, very enlightening!

My problems with the iMac were probably due to not being the person who got it out of the box. All of these suggestions (bar the last) only work for the initial users, not any subsequent ones!
