I had old photos and when i’d try to take a photo, there was a terrible glare. I downloaded this app, would take a photo of the picture, move the camera over the 4 dots and presto chango…a perfect reproduction of the photo!
Failure to scan a SINGLE photo! This app is completely unusable!
Sad to say I wasn’t impressed. I took a snapshot of a 1925 photo. My ProCamera app took a better photo and faster than the Google photo scan app which takes a snapshot of the photo and then you have to scan the 4 corners in order to complete the scan. The outcome was a washed out photo. I gave this three stars because it was free and it does “work” but not great.
Amazing app and so easy to use!!
besst old photos scanner overall
This most recent update is a hassle for sending photo scanned docs via email as well as in the midst of scanning a ‘pop up rating review’ stops the process. Extremely ANNOYING!
Easy hand held quick way to scan photos and documents.
After a while it starts to glitch
