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.
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.
App does what it says. Sometimes the glare removal gets it wrong and you need to rescan. Also it tends to pick up the 'grain' of photos, also requiring a rescan. Still faster and better results than manually scanning them. Edge detection is mostly spot on, but does require occasional correction. Thank you, Google, for letting me save my family's history :-)
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?
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.
