Love it used it for all my moms old pics

Pros:

sometimes alignment of dots takes a while

I love to share my old photos and PhotoScan is great tool to help to do so

Pros:

easy to use, excellent idea

Cons:

sometimes hard to follow the circles, hmm

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.

Pros:

Quick, high-quality scans. Easy to make fine-tune adjustments. Saves to Google Photos.

Cons:

It can sometimes be difficult to align photos just right to be captured.

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.

Pros:

Photo quality is great

Cons:

Have to move the cam to scan properly

Love the app, a lot of the limitations are a bit too much to overcome, but as a basic high res scanning tool it is brilliant and very easy to use.

Pros:

Amazingly simple to use

Cons:

The phone is often difficult to use when attempting to avoid reflections in glossy images or images in a frame.
