If you have a stack of old printed photographs that you have been meaning to scan and convert into digital photographs, but don’t have the equipment or perhaps the time to load each one into a flatbed scanner.
You may be interested in a new photographic scanning application which has been created by Google and launched this week in the form of Google PhotoScan.
The Google PhotoScan app is now available for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets and offers a quick way to transform a printed photo into a digital photo. Sure you could simply take a photograph of the photograph using your smartphone. But Google has added a number of enhancements to its PhotoScan application including automatic edge detection, perspective correction, and smart rotation to help you create a perfect digital copy of your cherished paper photographs.
Watch the video below to learn more about how the Google PhotoScan application functions and how it can help you quickly transform your pile of paper photographs into a digital photographic library. Google explains a little more about the new photo scanning application.
Photos from the past, meet scanner from the future. Don’t just take a picture of a picture. Create enhanced digital scans, with automatic edge detection, perspective correction, and smart rotation. PhotoScan stitches multiple images together to remove glare and improve the quality of your scans.
Get the free Google Photos app to keep your scans safe, searchable, and organized – even by the people and things in them. Plus, bring your scans to life with movies, filters, and advanced editing controls.
