Performance needs improving, even on the Pixel Great idea interfacing with the pre-digital era, and it would be better if the picture performance could be improved. Right now it works well in natural light but poorly under artificial. One major issue is poor focusing, even when using the flagship Pixel phone. On the plus side, the stitching and perspective matching has worked wonderfully!
Low resolution Unfortunately, I'm able to get better scans with my stock camera app because of the low resolution on PhotoScan. Can't see the detail in a scan that I'm able to get with a photo through my stock camera. I really hope there'll be an update to fix this issue. I'd be happy to give it 5 stars then. Other than the low resolution, no other issues. Great app. But right now it's not useful.
Works great except one thing I would give 5 stars for that app if the images quality weren't so bad. Resolution is very poor and I prefer to use my stock camera (google Pixel) than using that app. If they'll fix the quality, it could be perfect because it cropping and dealing with light amazing. But quality is bad
Doesn't achieve much If I turn the flash off I get much better looking (and higher res) photos from the stock camera app. So why bother with taking the time to take a 5 shot composite and then wait while it processes it? This is on a Nexus 6P. Other devices may yield better results I guess...
Fast and Easy but Not Sharp Super easy to scan photos, but even with a 20MP camera, plenty of light, no glare, the photos scan at about 2.5MP and each of the scanned photos saved with an artsy-like watercolor-ish effect to them. Whether a photo was sharp and clear itself, whether scanned from a scrapbook with vinyl over it, whether scanned just by itself - all of them saved with that effect. Haven't tried black and whites yet. The takeaway: if you want something that is simple and easy, use it. If you want super sharp scans, don't.
Takes five shots and combines them to a pretty good scan. Of course no 1:1 replacement for a professional film scanner (lab) or scanning with camera, macro and light table but very good on the go e.g. for Fuji Instax or Impossible Lab (Polaroid) pictures
