Photoscan app

If you want to digitize old printed photos there’s no need to buy a scanner. Simply use the camera in your phone and the PhotoScan app from Google.

The app doesn’t just take a picture of a picture, but uses specialized algorithms to detect edges, correct perspective, rotate as needed, and get rid of glare.

The app also integrates with Google Photos for easy backup, search, manual enhancement and face recognition.

Free for iOS and Android.
