Photos from the past, meet scanner from the future.

PhotoScan is a new app from Google Photos that lets you scan and save your favorite printed photos using your phone’s camera.

Don’t just take a picture of a picture. Create enhanced digital scans, wherever your photos are.
– Get glare-free scans with an easy step-by-step capture flow
– Automatic cropping based on edge detection
– Straight, rectangular scans with perspective correction
– Smart rotation, so your photos stay right-side-up no matter which way you scan them

Capture your favorite printed photos quickly and easily, so you can spend less time editing and more time looking at your bad childhood haircut.

For documents and photos in glare-free environments, toggle off glare removal for even faster scans.

Back up your scans with the free Google Photos app to keep them safe, searchable, and organized. Bring your scans to life with movies, filters, and advanced editing controls. And share them with anyone, just by sending a link.

Great for making digital copies of my scrapbook pages

I made several scrapbooks of my family photos before digital photos were around. But now I wanted to preserve them digitally but they are too big for my flatbed scanner. This app is great for taking digital copies of these large pages so I can view them on my iPad. Sometimes I can even scan the scrapbook pages right from their plastic overlays without any glare. The app even takes pictures of the pages and crops them automatically so just the pages are the photos, without me having to crop out any unnecessary surroundings. Great app!

Awesome, love it!

This app is super simple to use. It pretty much does it all for you. You know those pictures you get that have stuff you didn't want around the edges? You can easily make that stuff go away on your scanned photo. My mom still uses a camera with film and is always giving me pictures I want to keep but have no room for, I love this app! They can now all go into Google Photos and it's "one stop shopping!" All in one place, nice, neat uncluttered and supremely space saving. Love it!

Great idea, super easy & well implemented

This is a great tool for getting old photos, epically ones your family won't part with, into digital. It's very easy to use and gives you good results most of the time. Users should beware of glare in the window when framing your shot.

I'd *love* to see this product augmented with better editing tools or at least allow 3rd party integration within the app so I can edit my photos within Photoscan. Also, zooming in the main window would be quite helpful as would pre-photo resolution options.
