+whiteboard-cam is a whiteboard capture system written as a set of bash shell scripts. The system takes a picture from an attached Canon still camera; corrects barrel-distortion, performs perspective transformation and contrast maximization; then uploads the image to a flickr account.
-1) plug in camera, power up
-2) run ./config.sh once (needs to be run once after each plug-in of camera before capturing)
-3) run ./capture.sh to capture and upload one new image

+ImageMagick - http://www.imagemagick.org/
+uploadr.py - http://github.com/ept/uploadr.py (inlcuded)
