    I was spending hours scanning photos on my Cannon Flat Bed. I can scan a photo in 3 seconds with this app! And I love that the pictures are immediately saved in both my Google Photos and IPhone Photos without being asked! Thank you for saving that step!!! A couple things to know. Click the lightning bolt on bottom of screen to turn off your flash and cancel out glare. It saves the extra seconds it takes to readjust the photo. Also don't let Google modify your picture when it pops up. It was cropping off heads and the focus of the picture when I went to look at them in my Google Photos. Thanks for making this great app!!!!!

  • Absolutely horrible.

    By MysticMaven
    I just tried to scan some photos and compared them to scans I did 20 years ago on a cheap flatbed scanner and the Google photo scan images are absolutely horrible! I can’t believe the positive reviews this app has because these are by far the worst photo scans I’ve ever seen.

    When I go to family reunions this app is perfect for making copies of pictures behind glass frames. They look as good as the original. Perfect for digitizing old photos.
