Firstly, congrats on the youtube promo video (if you haven't seen, please do!). The app is great and works as promised delivering a high quality digital copy of your printed photo. @Google: Please add an option to prompt user to add the date of the photo so it's easier to manage with your Google Photo's account (otherwise we need to edit the photo in another app later on).
Concept is good.. removes glares effectively and recognises borders well. But my issue is with quality. Photos taken with my camera app are better that this. Esp when you zoom. So I ended up taking pics with camera and cropping them to borders rather than using this app. Scope for improvement. App should be able to use on device camera to full potential.
Picture quality is still behind the capabilities of my device. Aspect ratios are wrong (6:4 for a 122×87mm picture), pictures got distorted. Colors are overexposed. Now its 2018.02, more than a year has passed and there is no any fix for the distortion problem. Sad. :(
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! THIS APP. I scanned some old photos that were not of real high quality, taken back in the days of the disposable cameras, and the scanned picture looks amazingly better. Great color, very clear, and no glare. Couldn't ask for a better scanner app. Thanks Google!!
Used this app to scan old family photos, especially if my grandmother who passed away about a year ago, for the most part works great, has some really awesome features like the ability to adjust the corners to fix the perspective so you can get a head-on view of a photo that's hanging hough up on a wall, and the ability to eliminate MOST OF the glare. The glare elimination isn't flawless, but does work fairly well. With a little tweaking, should run smooth as butter. Keep up the great work Google! I look forward to trying out your future experiments!
I'm trying to use this as a replacement for Office Lens as my primary scanning app on my Pixel 2 XL. The pros: much quicker. Has a mode which allows you to eliminate glare The cons: not as clear as office lens. Autosaves to jpg. I was hoping that there would be an option to export to PDF.
Easier capture and save
Scanned photos are saved to your device on capture.
Improved corner editor
In addition to the corners, you can now drag the edges to adjust the automatic cropping of your scanned photo.
