How can I take a picture of an olive oil label ?
On the starting page of Olixius there is a green camera icon at right bottom corner. Click on that icon and a new screen inviting you to take a photo of your olive oil label will appear. Here you have two possibilities, you can select either of them:
- Take a picture of a label clicking on the camera icon at the left side of the lower green band.
- Use a previously stored olive oil label by accessing your photo gallery. To do so click on the gallery icon at the right side of the lower green band. Once in you gallery you can select a label, it will appear on the application for your review, to upload the photo to our servers you must click on the red cloud icon that appears at the top right corner.
Wrong response when scanning labels
We work hard to detect most of the world’s Olive Oil brands but that is a work in progress as labels are updated in the market on a continuous basis and we may not have added your scanned label still to our system. However, there may be other reasons for your label not to be detected properly, as for example :
These two situations can lead to a wrong classification of your label as far as it affect the input information to our algorithms.
Currently our algorithms are unable to detect a brand name which is placed vertically on the bottle. In this case please rotate the bottle so the label brand name is pictured horizontally. .
Several marks prefer to trade a bottle with no label or almost no distinctive text on it. At this point we are still unable to provide a proper answer to this case.
Some brands sell bottles with almost the same label with a very small difference between them. In this case our algorithm may confuse one label by other. We do our best to reduce this wrong cases as much as possible.
Unfortunately many brands use the same label for a lot of different varieties being the only difference only the variety’s text. In this situation there is a big probability to detect the proper brand but not the proper variety. We do our best to detect these labels.
There may be additional but still unidentified reasons producing a wrong detection. We hope to be aware of them soon. We are continuouslly improving this complex process.
