- DIY way to digitize old photos. I would recommend you use a really HQ camera and spend a couple of hours getting these photos digitized. Google Photos is Legit if you haven't realized yet. For individual photos, I would recommend using one off services like Upwork or Fiverr.Really good app. Scans well and doesn't have the flash/glare issue that other apps seems to due to an algorithm that removes it. It's clever, but takes time if you have lots and lots of photos.
PhotoScan is a phenomenal app for quickly converting printed images into digital images. Forget your scanner. This app is faster and easier to use. Simply hold your phone above a photo and scan at a handful of points and your photo is digitized and uploaded to your Google Photos account. One of the best uses for this app is family history. You can quickly archive all your family history photos from a photo book without lots of extra touching of old or delicate photos.
The app reminded me of the old photo archive I stored over two decades. The scan quality is great.
It's wearisome to scan over 1k photos. I guess most of the app users ditch it after the firs hundred of scans.
