Awesome Digital Photo Scanner with iPhone
I love how intuitive the app was to digitally scan old photos of family members. I was turned onto this app when my father-in-law recently passed away. I was assisting my wife scan the numerous photos of her father throughout his life. We were using an Epson scanner and found it very tedious and time-,consuming despite the obvious grief we were experiencing for his recent passing. Nonetheless, I thought to myself with all the recent advances in technology isn’t their an easier way to scan these photos for posterity as well as use for a slideshow tribute? Yes, indeed there was and it was free of charge from Google. Works pretty darn well and am impressed how true to the actual pictures the digital copy chame out. I would highly recommend everyone use this app to scan old photos of family members, pets, or anything you cherish and want kept for posterity. Only issue of mine is the lack of real seamless syncing with my MacBook Pro. I find that the Google Photos app doesn’t want to work well with my MacBook Pro. It was getting stuck in the export of the data from my iPhone. Not sure if it is user error but recommend Google tech developers get on that!
I would give it 10 Stars if I could!!!
This app is straight up AWESOME. There are other good scanner apps out there, but this is by far the best photo scanner app I have ever used. In fact, it might even be better than actual photo scanner machines. The quality of scans is great. I scanned several old family photos and they came out clear and accurate.
It has to take a picture in the dead center of the picture, then it primos you to move to the four corners of the picture. It similar to when you take panoramic photos with your phone. By taking pictures of the center and each corner, it allows the software of the app to automatically get out any glare, but also maintain the integrity of the photo. Once you're finished with a batch you can save the photos to your Google Photos app.
I highly recommend it to anyone, but especially those who have been wanting to scan old photos, but have been afraid of the amount of time it would take as well as the money to spend on a photo scanner. Here is your answer.
Great photo scanning app
It handles both gray and color photos just fine. Instructions are easy - you will be scanning in no time. It handles pictures in frames or behind the glass - its anti glare feature is awesome.
I wish they had a bit better border detection as I often find myself tweaking borders for older pictures. The UI for border detection could be better likewise / provide better controls as pictures could get small while it gets harder to catch the border at such scale (with my imperfect eyesight). Still, I like the app a lot.
Taking pictures in batches works faster. When scanning albums, just keep going - you can adjust borders for your batch later before saving them all in one go. This speeds things up significantly rather than taking a picture/adjusting its borders/saving one at a time.
