Scanner for Images

Hey, I have users upload images, but want to be able to take advantage of scan functionality that exists on iOS and other apps. Basically this:

So when you click into the “image” widget, it lets you scan an image rather than just take a photo.

Is there anyway to do this? Any native plugin or commonly used API?


Had any success? I have a similar requirement

I also have something similar. Were you able to pull it off?

If you are looking to do optical character recognition, it’s really hard. There are plenty of APIs out there, but it’s a royal PITA.

The things is It would require a custom made plugin to implement. That would require somewhat advanced coding skills.
