extracting to-do's from photos
I had a similar step in my workflow and found that post processing the images routinely sidetracked me. I hated transcribing what I had already written.
Being a software developer, I created a simple software tool for my own use. I've since allowed a handful of friends to use it as well.
It let's me take a photo of my notes and it automatically extracts the parts of the photo that contain to-do items (it looks for a special marking) and puts them into my Omnifocus inbox where I can process them within my normal workflow.
No more transcribing my handwritten notes!
If you're interested in sharing the service, drop me an email. Just be aware that this is NOT a commercial service, and there is NO "customer service" - but it should work fine as long as there is only a small group of users.
