This is a common task in the field of fingerprint biometric.The acquisition process in two mode:

1 - off line mode (inked image)

2 - on line mode (live scan)

In the off line mode,we have two type acquisition :

1 - fingerprint on card text.(Picture scan with scanner)[it is easy to match]

2 - forensic application latent fingerprint(Picture taken with camera)[it is difficult to match]
