I needed to send a scan of my driver's license and my social security card to a new employer and using my S8+ camera app worked OK, but it looks at least as good as any scanner I've ever used with this app, maybe better. It's simple, intuitive, and only took a few seconds to get some quality captures to send along. No one would know I used a phone.
Wonderful way to scan photos ! Beats my flatbed scanner and all the cropping, trimming, editing ect. The only a couple suggestions. Using 4 corner dots when scanning is somewhat tedious, but I'm sure there is a good reason requiring this. Could you please add a multi picture scan mode, the ability to launch an app like snapseed for example, to edit if I wanted too, and finally an easier way to catalog scans into an album or something?
I personally think it's silly to keep thousands of pictures in boxes spread throughout the house from the attic, to the basement.. When they are actually just waiting for the garbage. It's nice that Google made this app to super easily file away those pictures that if you're honest, you'll admit you'll probably never look at again anyway. If your looking for super high quality copies, I suggest you send them off to a service.. Or keep the originals. Otherwise this app totally helps with clutter.
I tried one pic. I tried it 7 times. It did not remove the glare, and the best job it did, it made it look like my face had been taken over by an actual demon. Like a face-melting, eye-bleeding demon. I just went ahead and took pics of my photos. Thanks for trying, better luck next time 😒
It's a wonderful idea, but I am having issues with a lot of old pictures where the tracker looses the corners, and the image looks a lot more faded than it actually is. The flat removal needs work too. But love the direction this is going in. If these bugs are fixed, if it's just the app I was looking for to digitize and share old memories with my family.
Ridiculously bad quality makes this useless and defeats the purpose. Photo cameras are already bad scanners for 2-dimensional objects, but you can get much better results by just taking a normal, high-resolution photo with your phone camera in good lighting, playing with the angles. The image processing of this app doesn't effectively remove glare, but it does result in more blurry and lower res images, compared to taking a normal photo. Seems more like Google developers playing with a new and interesting technology rather than a useful and finished product.
New quick scan mode
• Toggle off glare removal for one-capture scans
• Great for documents and photos in glare-free environments
Plus, you can now share your scans right from the app.
