Wow! Easy!


I scanned about 30 b/w pictures within a minute of downloading this app! Then I went back and did the fine cropping on all of them in about two minutes. Soooo easy to use. Exactly what I hoped for! I downloaded the free version to try it. Going back to purchase the pro version now. Love it! All my family pics will be digitized in short order. Thank you for making this app!!

Handles most photos


Great app. I hate trying to fix the colors of old photos manually. This app does the annoying work for you, and does it well most of the time but I noticed it doesn’t work with *every* photo. Some are just too “far gone”, I guess.
I dunno how powerful the Pro version of this app is, but that’s my experience with this one.

Loving this app!

I have lots of old albums and am scanning and saving online and to a stick. App is very easy to use and captures the pictures quickly. Tried a couple other apps and was not impressed with them at all.
