Google launched “Photo Scan” in the last few weeks, and its main goal is bringing your shoeboxes full of photos into the 21st century.
Photo Scan allows you to scan your photos into Google Photos, using your phone camera, and the quality on it is really good.
The app “scans” the photo as a whole, before getting you to focus on all four quadrants individually.
Due to this process, the app virtually guarantees no glare on any of your photos
The quality of the photos are surprisingly high, as I tested it on multiple photos from the 1980s, and was pleasantly surprised by the results.
Sure it would take lots of time to scan your hundreds of photos in, but maybe the time is worth it if it means preserving your photos for years to come?
The app is available on Android as well as iOS.
