Also, to add to what Brian mentioned, with sighted assistance in getting a usable picture of something, if you have an iPhone, you can face time a trusted contact and they can take a picture with your phone's rear camera, and they will have it on their phone, and they can then eMail it to you.
I have done this with my son.
There's probably a way to do this in Android, but I haven't done anything using the camera except be my eyes, and I don't think they have the ability to take a picture, and if they could, I don't think you would want a stranger taking pictures of such things.

Well, yes, as that's how any mobile banking app gets the data necessary to deposit the check and to have the legally required images (when the bank processes the checks normally they're scanned, and images are saved).

When it comes to things like this, it's always easier to enlist sighted assistance, once, to get a "photo rig" set up for your smartphone.  I've done this on multiple occasions, and not just for banking apps, so that the phone can be placed on top of the rig (which is usually a small cardboard box, cut into what amounts to a small table with an opening large enough for the smartphone's camera to be able to take photos of items placed "on the floor" (table top or desk top in reality) beneath the rig.  Once set up this tends to work like a charm for as long as the rig remains viable.
