The app’s scanning algorithm automatically inverts colors and enhances the image so you get the best possible scans of your old film negatives.

I works but it's a pain. The animation for when it crops the image takes forever and you can't turn it off anymore. The crop in general is broken, I'd be scanning a black and white image but because there is white it won't scan that part because it thinks it's part of the back light. You can't get close or you'll get too much blur or too far out because you'll get digital noise. If the would remove the crop feature it would make this the bast app for scanning but it's so broken with coping film

Thank you for reaching out. You can turn off the animation in your "settings" section. There is an option within the app to crop your scans manually. Click on the cropping icon on the bottom of the screen - second icon from the left. If you have any other questions please feel free to reach out to and we'll gladly assist.

I love this app. I have been able to view, save, and colorize hundreds of very old negatives with ease. I only have the free version, and yes, of course, there are ads. But when the ad comes on, you can X out of it after 5 seconds. The ads only come up when you try to view the photo you just took, and when you try to colorize it. The only other time you get an ad is if you try to use the macro feature. The ads aren't invasive at all. My tripod, light pad, and this app are all I need. Ty Filmbox!

I've tried using this on several negatives and I'm having a hard time getting the photo to line up correctly. What it looks like in the Preview window is NOT what it winds up looking like in the final photo. It cuts heads off, it does something with the perspective that makes people look crooked. I even mounted the negative and my phone and tried, and it still messed things up. I can't find anything in the settings to turn off auto-cropping. Also, it charged me for a year before my 3 day trial was up. Buyer beware!!!!
