Very good idea. Unfortunately it's not working as expected for me. Quality is too low, specially considering that I'm taking 4 photos (sort of); way lower than making one normal photo with my Nexus 5X. Also the glare removal leaves artifacts behind. But this is a good app for autocropping, and if that's good by itself.
The app gives mixed results. With lower ends phones I was able to get better quality scans as compared to higher end phones. With my Honor 8 the picture was too bright, too noisy and lack of detail. It did much better with Honor 6X and Redmi 3S. Turning off flash and glare removal provided better results. But in that case the default camera app takes even better scans. So overall a great idea and good algorithms but needs more improvements. Would revisit in the future.
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.
Very mixed feelings about this app. Scanned pictures look amazing, but sharing them automatically adds a "PhotoScan by Google Photos" stamp to the bottom of each image. If the idea is creating cleaner, better looking scans with your phone, how is that not defeated by adding a freaking stamp to the picture once you share it?? Anyhow, picture quality is very good, and the stamp only appears when you share images directly from the app, so it isn't exactly a deal breaker. I would appreciate the choice whether to promote the app using my pictures, though, since I'd be glad to do it in other ways. A bad move in an otherwise great app.
Useless, doesn't work. Keeps telling me to move my phone over 4 dots and never shows me the dots so I have to shoot in the dark. At the end I wasted 30 minutes trying to scan a photo, my phone heated up, and my hands and arms became numb. Deleting now.
The resolution of the photos taken by this app is too low. Glare removing is a brilliant idea, however as a photo scanning app, the resolution is absolutely the top priority amount all the others factors. Glare comes with flash light and the reason why we need to use a flash light is that we want to have high quality pictures taken under low light environment. What am I going to do with a no glare however low resolution picture?
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.
