PhotoScan, A New App by Google for Quickly Capturing and Preserving Physical Photos


PhotoScan is an new app (Android and iOS) created by Google that cna quickly capture and preserve physical photos. The PhotoScan app scans photographs from multiple angles to avoid glare, and it automatically corrects perspective and rotation. Once scanned, users can select from preset filters or make manual adjustments, all in a matter of seconds.

We all have those old albums and boxes of photos, but we don’t take the time to digitize them because it’s just too hard to get it right. We don’t want to mail away our original copy, buying a scanner is costly and time consuming, and if you try to take a photo of a photo, you end up with crooked edges and glare.

We knew there had to be a better way, so we’re introducing PhotoScan, a brand new, standalone app from Google Photos that easily scans just about any photo, free, from anywhere.
