have a samsung s20, which I've been using to scan lots of documents, up until recently this worked perfectly, I could change the corners and it would fix the perspective etc, it was great.
Until the last few days, I scan a document, set the corners and save, but the document that is saved is not the parts I selected, its like my phone just decided I didn't know what I want and that it knew better and decided itself what the corners should be, sometimes ending up in me only having 1/3 of the document I want.
I've restarted my phone, reset the camera defaults, deleted the camera cache - how do I convince my phone that I know where the corners are on the document better than it does?

Launch the Camera app.
Tap on the settings cog in the top Lh corner.
Tap on Scene Optomiser.
If the documents option is available then there will be a toggle saying Scan Documents.
Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²³ Ultra 512Gb in Phantom Black.
The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "

Problems with the Samsung S20 and its scanning function always need to be solved. Have you tried Samsung support to see if they have any suggestions or solutions? Also, you're looking for a more robust and reliable scanning solution. In that case, consider using a third-party app specializing in document scanning and OCR. I've been using Smart Engines for a long time, which uses advanced algorithms to provide automatic and eco-friendly scanning with increased accuracy and fewer errors. They also often have more options for adjusting angles and perspectives.

One potential solution you could try is using a fake ID checker app, as these often have built-in scanning features that allow you to adjust the corners and perspective of your document manually. It may give you more control over the cropping process and ensure the document is saved exactly as you intended.
Additionally, you could check if any software updates are available for your phone, as this may address any issues with the scanning feature. If all else fails, reaching out to Samsung's customer support team is also a good option.
Good luck with your scanning endeavors, and I hope you find a solution that works for you!
