Love this app- it on my top 3 essential apps

Takes crisp images of original old fashioned photographs, if you angle your phone just right, they come out looking like they were taken with my phone. It has a crop option too. The very cool thing is that I can take boxes and boxes of old family photographs and have them on my phone for easy access, whenever I want to reprint or show off my baby pics lol. I do like this app, I like that you have the option of storing them on the app or transfer your pics to your phone, I do both. Perfect way to back up those priceless memories, than just having the originals in a box and running the risks of being damaged or lost forever.

Unbelievable photo preservation

I was able to preserve photos for my wife on her 50th surprise birthday party of pictures that were taken throughout her lifetime. These are extra special photo preservations since my wife has multiple sclerosis. These pictures are now preserved for our children and grandchildren. Great quality and very easy to use. Thank you for developing this product
