When you click on the plus (+) icon in Spenser, you will find the following two options:

- Green icon to select a single image from the gallery of your mobile
Taking pictures in Spenser
There are two options:
This is ideal if you want to take a picture of a single receipt or create an invoice with multiple pages.
This is ideal if you want to take many photos of invoices / receipts at once to create single documents so that you can manage each one individually.
If you want to review the image, you can click on the thumbnail on the bottom left of the screen. When you are finished taking pictures, click Done and you will go to the next screen to indicate whether the document is an Invoice or a Expense.
Camera function mode
If you click on auto or manual on the top right-hand corner of the screen, you can indicate whether you want to take the photo manually or use the automatic function.
In the automatic mode , the camera will automatically take a picture if there is a sharp image with a clear background. A message will also appear if you need to change the position of the camera. The photo will be automatically cropped.
In manual mode, you can take the photo manually. After the photo is taken, you can manually adjust the photo and crop the image if needed. The image can also be rotated if the photo is taken incorrectly (this icon will be shown on the top right)
Extra option: turn on the flashlight
If you click on the flashlight icon at the top left of the screen, the flashlight will be enabled. This ensures that that there's extra light if there is insufficient light to take a good photo.
In automatic mode, a tip is given to turn on the flashlight if the background is too dark. The app will not take the picture until the background is clear and bright.
