Google's Photo Scan app for smartphones

#1 Post by Brian » Thu Nov 17, 2016 12:20 pm

So, I tried Google's new photo scan app, and have to say it's not bad at all. What is that I hear you say? Well, to cut a long story short this app uses your phones camera and flash to "scan" any printed photo without having to use an actual scanner. The results are good enough to use for most internet based forums (hint!) or the likes of facebook and while it will not replace a flatbed for precision or detailed scanning it does work. So, for those of you with a smart phone (IOS or Android) now there is no excuse to not get some old photographs out there :-) (and send them to me for the forum!) Photo attached scanned with app.
