Two upload receipts in one...

Who does these, instead of one uploaded receipt, this company has a new Editor who insists on putting both receipts together, I'm not getting it....owner also said, she is having complaints with what used to be a super easy small job to the Editor making it impossible and wanting lengthy narratives for a small salad place, usually to go.
I'd rather go on my own than the time it now takes to do a report.

Irene,

I take pics of both receipts separately, crop them, then use LibreOffice Impress (like MS Powerpoint) to merge the two receipts into one page. After saving the file in its' native format, I export it to .jpg format and all-done. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy....

Thank goodness I'm too stupid to be mental!
LOL, msimon. That's so far over my head, it might as well be in a foreign language.

I just put the receipts side by side, and photograph them, LOL.
LOL ceasesmith -- normally I would agree with you, but many of my receipts are too long for one pic, so I fold it in half and take pics of the top and bottom. I then use the process I outlined to merge them into one file, side-by-side. I have gotten so used to this, that I just use the same method when dealing with two receipts.

It is quick and easy, results in a high quality receipt for submission, and best of all, I have never had a shop returned for a receipt issue (knocks on wood).

When I get receipts that are too long to be readable after scanning or being photographed, I cut them in half and lay the pieces side-by-side and either scan or photograph both at once. Very simple. No MSC has ever objected to that.

Edited to add: In cases when I need to upload both the front and back of a business card, but only one upload is permitted, I scan each one, and drop each into PowerPoint so that they are side-by-side. I prefer to then use SnagIt to produce the appropriate JPG image, but the Snip tool works well also.

I am pretty sure Irene once said she uses her scanner and not a cell download for receipts. that is what I do so I just put the two receipts on my scanner glass. I purposely bought one with a glass and not just a feeder because it is such a pain to have to tape a receipt to paper and then copy the paper as it will get stuck in the feeder. In any case then I just scan it in with both receipts on the same scan side by side. I do always have to cut the receipts for the post office shops so i do the same thing of laying them side by side. Most companies with two receipts that I work for want them in the same file. Anywhere I need to send a pic of back and front of a card has two spots to load the pic. one for back and one for front.
I am not really sure why some of these companies that pay a pittance for the report set their requirements so that it is impossible to just simply scan or load a pic and send it to them. Fiddling around with different programs so that you can get it to fit their requirements to me is at a much higher pay level than mystery shopping.
I am sure that you are trainable. There are many ways to accomplish this. I can think of ways that just use a scanner. I can think of many software options depending upon what you do or don't have. CEASE (or anyone else), if you want a personalized discussion and training, just PM me.

I don't use a scanner, I have an SD card from my camera and upload pic's into report.

A challenge for me! The key is knowing what to call what you want to do. If you take two separate photos (front and back of a business card, for instance) but need to have just one upload, you need to create a collage. Collage is the keyword. Regardless of whether you want to do this with an iPhone or Android, there is software to do this using only your smartphone. This article addresses both platforms: [www.aiseesoft.com] while this one provides seven (7) different solutions for Android: [thedroidguy.com]

LOL! "Trainable", indeed!

Really, I assure you, it would frustrate you and waste your time!

I have not yet mastered taking a "screenshot".

I did not grow up with tech, and it's really, really difficult for me.

I am NOT stupid. I just don't "get it".

People think I'm joking when I tell them it took me NINE YEARS to learn to cut and paste -- but I'm not joking.

I really can't spare another 9 years.

But I deeply appreciate your offer. You're very kind.
