Reviews

it’s basically magic

so I’m one of those “I never write reviews, but” yeah I’m here because I literally got teary-eyed when I saw the results of using Photoscan instead of just taking a photo of a photo. I have no-glare, not distorted, not faded photos of family from before I was born. I’d taken photos of these pictures before, because a lot of them are old and quite fragile and I wanted a record of their existence. The difference using Photoscan was…like I said, a little teary-eyed. Look, I was the girl who always had the camera, who holds reams of photos (from high school and college, especially) and puts a priority on protecting that physical print from time, wear, and tear. The Photoscan images are so good, they kinda look better than the print sometimes. It somehow balances the colors perfectly — not like a filter or editing black point, shadows, etc., but it just looks RIGHT. It’s better, but you wouldn’t realize it until comparing a couple of times. I am a photo person. I love looking back at these images, because you can hear stories about people all the time, but a photo…is so much more. And this app takes that next-level by preserving them the way they really look. It is incredible, and I truly think it’s the best “photo-to-computer” facilitator ever, including things like scanners. It’s simple to use and the results are stunning. Get it.

I had a bunch of old photos that I needed to scan……this was very quick. Some of the photos were a little dark and this app corrected that as much as possible.

This app is amazing. I was about to head to Walmart to get some old photos scanned and put on a usb for my dear grandmother. I looked around for an easier solution and tried this app. Wow does this app work great. Perfect size pictures and the clarity is actually really good. Awesome awesome app.

Love scanning with this app which even straightens my photos. It allows me to copy old photos and send them to my family.

Amazing tool and works so well!

I’m using the app to scan old family photos and they come out amazing! I’m also using the app to scan my son’s artwork from the school and it’s doing an amazing job even with the oddest shape pieces. It’s so easy to adjust the corners if it doesn’t read a photo correctly.

Questionable function

After you scan the photograph there are very few instructions on what to do with them, you can’t save them to your phone or send them to a dropbox. The options are very limited, and it’s confusing.

Awesome Digital Photo Scanner with iPhone

5
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!
