Mobile image quality very poor

When a receipt is scanned within the mobile app, the quality is greatly reduced within quicken so that it is unreadable. I saw another thread that was started but then closed on this issue but it is still happening.

    A significant reason to have the mobile app is to use the photo option to record receipts. However, the photo quality makes them useless. I am using the Android Samsung G7 Edge

    Hello RIB397,

    Have you tried taking a picture with the camera app and then attaching this file to the mobile app and see if it makes a difference?

    Please let us know.

    I tried your suggestion but still have the problem. Using the camera produced a good photo but when added to Quicken the quality is reduced to unusable. (I replied to earlier email but did not realize I had to select the "VIEW REPLY" button for this page.)

    Hey RIB397,

    When you attach an image using the mobile app are you viewing it in the mobile app or are you syncing and viewing the image on the desktop?

    Has this worked properly before and has started doing this recently?

    Let us know!

    I have viewed the image on both the phone and the desktop. Both are not usable. I only recently tried using the photo attach feature so I don't know if it is due to an update or has always been that way in the Quicken 2018 version. I think I used it in prior versions and don't recall this being a problem.

    I have mostly received questions from them. Since I could not fix it I stopped using the photo attach feature but after you asked I tried it again. It seems to work now. There have been software updates to the phone and desktop so maybe that fixed the issue. Hopefully it continues to work. Thanks for following up on my issue.
