Just what I needed! After my grandfather had to move out of his house into an assisted living home, my mother was left with many of his belongings to sort through - including many old negatives. This app made it possible to convert the images (with the help of an internally lit lapdesk) into something that can be printed and given to my grandpa as a wonderful surprise from the past instead of just sitting in a box hidden forever. Now my grandpa can relish memories from family gatherings, some proffessional shots he took, and the war thanks to this app!
Revealing treasures, wonderful! My sister and I were going through my mother's things and ran across almost 100 negatives of pictures we had never seen. Used Helmut Film Scanner and found some wonderful photos, that more than likely would have ended up in the trash. Every scan was like finding a treasure. Thanks Helmut.
So easy to use! I'm so impressed with this app, I wish I had found it sooner. I tried using image editing software on my desktop to edit my negatives, but getting the colour corrections right was way over my n00by head. This app does the job with very little effort required. One little problem I'm having though is that the app doesn't have an option to adjust the crop box, I can only crop to one sized square.
Good App Actually a really good app. It is useful to get live pictures and give them quick effects as well. I have just one problem, if I capture using the cam with "image preview size" LARGE option the app, after accepting the picture, comes back to the start screen. Screen just flickers the edit background and then restarts. Using SMALL it works fine. Great app anyway.
Excellent for quick processing and sharing Excellent if you want to quickly share the negatives that you just processed. Can not replace a proper scanner though, but I don't think that is the purpose of this app. (It would be nice by the way if it was possible to adjust the crop on single side i.e. not symmetrical)
Simply Genius! I have a TON of old skinny style negatives from the 80's (I forget the type/size), but no place has been able to scan them any longer. I was able to simply hold them up towards a white wall to take a quick snapshot or use a light box for better quality.
