I travel for work and so I have to submit expenses and I usually try to coax the tiny little receipts through my HP AIO scanner. I save the scans as PDF but since I don't run any OCR software they're basically just photos saved in the PDF document. This step of the expense report process takes a long time.

It dawned on me today to just take a photo of the receipts since it amounts to about the same thing, it's much faster and it's easier to add metadata to images than PDFs.
