    A lot. Takes 5+ times to start up ok. Also, not glare-free. When it works, easy and mostly good though.
  • One more thing . . .

    would make this perfect . . . unless I’m missing something. I can invite a person to view all my pictures. But I have 5 siblings, with their spouses, umpteen nieces, nephews, cousins and grands, 2nd and 3rd of each. Can we not create a group share option. Scanning 69 yrs worth of my parents’ photos which will want to be shared with various members of the family. If they ALL had access to the photos I’m scanning, they could pick which ones they want. Thx.
  • Love this!

    Old pics that don’t look great, turn out better than original. Love!

  • Use to work

    By Railgun
    Use to be great. Now it’s too slow to be useful. I’m chasing the white dot around the room and takes like a minute to process one photo. I use to use this for bulk scanning photos.
  • Fantastic!

    This app is amazing. Scan anything so quickly. Pictures come out great. Photo on the wall with glass? Easy. No reflections just perfect results. I love it!
