The app itself functions pretty slick. But.... It only supports super LOW resolutions for your final image. It’s barely good enough for social media. My phone 10 years ago could take higher res images than what this saves. My newest phone has some of the most advanced lenses and camera technology widely available as it’s the newest pro model. Why can’t google make use of this????? Do not trust this for any archival purposes!
Great quality scans! Saves directly to my IOS Photo albums.
It’s awesome. Recommended. As usual.
So easy and quick!
An easy to use phone scan app once you get over trying to control the circles; just follow them no matter what you see by the circles, the app fixes the pic perfectly.
This app is exceedingly accurate & helps me take pics of framed art (eliminates glare), images in books, photo IDs & business cards, docs and those stupid receipts that have disappearing ink(!)... As an art historian, it was difficult for me to take a good shot because I have a hand tremor until I discovered PhotoScan in its infancy. I use this app daily, have recommended it to tons of people and cannot exaggerate how awesome this photo app is. Plus, this is a Google product - a plus in my opinion!
Very quick and responsive. Turns photos into digital scans very well!
I love that I dont have to spend time editing documents I scan because the way the images are captured, it automatically does it for you
Not perfect, but worth having! Indispensable for helping out relatives who GLUED large numbers of prints into huge albums with fixed pages, or similar. Fast. Integration with google photos handy. Occasionally made relatives look like they’d been through a gene blender in a horror sci-fi flick: extra eyes, mouths, demon cloud heads, etc. but usually not. Didn’t remove all the glare every time, particularly with glossy photos, but usually did a passable job, sometimes excellent.
