Sometimes we want to keep our physical copies of our photos in soft copy but what if we don’t have a scanner? Is there a more convenient way to do it? Thanks to Android and iPhone apps, we can digitize physical copies of our photos with just a snap. I did a little research on which apps to use. Below are my 3 favourite apps to use (not in any order of merit).
1. PhotoScan by Google Photos
This app is pretty easy to use. It takes multiple shots of a photo which would cause the glare to be automatically removed from the photo. Glare-free photo guys! It automatically detects the edges but sometimes I need to manually adjust it to my liking. The down side to it would be that I can’t scan multiple photos at a time.
2. Photo Scanner by Photomyne
If you have tons and tons of physical photos lying around and you want to digitize them, this app will be a great app for you! This app can scan multiple photos at one time. Plus, you could also add details to the album of the photo i.e. location, date, etc.
I would say the only downside to this app will be that it sometimes does not detect the photo edges very well. So it is inconsistent for that. It is a small matter. You can just adjust it manually. Another cool thing about this app is that you use filters for your photos.
Note: For iOS, the free app is a lite version. For both android and iOS app, there are in-app purchases.
This is also another good app that I found. However, it was not like the photoscan app where it detects the photo edges automatically. So I had to manually adjust the crop marks.
However, the plus point of this app will be its filters and photo editor tool. So you can edit your photos any way you wish after scanning.
Available only on: Android
And that’s it guys! Try it for yourself! Save some old pictures and swipe through them on the go. You can even reprint them into another size! Let me know what is your favourite app to use and why.
‘Till next time!
