PhotoScan - scanner by Google Photos app reviews

  • Terrific! Fast way to scan old photos 5/5

    By ScottGator
    Works very well, which doesn't surprise me since Google made it. Thank you Google!
  • I love it!!!! 5/5

    By Iconicsymphonic
    I have hundreds of old family pictures I'm trying to digitize and so far this app has been incredible! The photos turn out perfect and clean with no glare whatsoever. This is exactly what I needed.
  • When it works, it’s great. 3/5

    By FeelSmartinShanghai
    I am very frustrated with this ap. One time it works fine, then I try to scan something another time And it freezes up and I can move around to the 4 circles. I just get a message that says “sorry can’t scan”. There is no rhyme or reason why it won’t scan. It is not a Lighting issue. I hate apps because there is no one who you can call to ask for help. The help forum doesn’t seem to address this issue. So use this...but it’s reliability is questionable.
  • Works great but what’s up with the low resolution? 2/5

    By DJ-Doc
    Resolution is unusable except for web display. Why no option to scan at higher res when the camera supports higher res? Useless as a photo archiving app when the resolution is so horrible.
  • Great 5/5

    By Eliose Doughnut
    I just found a bunch of old pictures. I scanned them with this app and now I know they are secure!!
  • Great, Great , Great app 5/5

    By SilverFox!!!
    I pulled some photos down from the attic, some said Thanksgiving 1924! I used the app to check the photo quality and was amazed. Even people I shared them with could not believe it! My family will be enjoying their great grandparents 1924 Thanksgiving; this 2017 Thanksgiving
  • One important feature missing 3/5

    By Rannnnnnndy
    I would love to give this a higher rating but there is one feature that needs to be in here related to organization. Scanning photos generally mean they were not taken that moment. This app needs to allow you to change the metadata so that photos that you scan from 1984 show up in that year, not the day that you scan it. The photos scan great but without this feature I can’t organize the way that I would like.
  • It's excellent 5/5

    By EA Sport
    Scan photos like James Bond

    By hetjteyrjyru
  • Hangs on “Here’s how to scan” 1/5

    By SchultzeFamily
    I wd love to use this app but it will not work. Downloaded it two different times and it hangs in the same spot. Not working. Broken. Bad. :(
  • Excellent!!! 5/5

    By Vfgjfsawijcwoqpdbfbe0173749201
    This app is SOOOO helpful! It was easy and quick for a multitude of old photos! Thank you!!
  • Really pleased!! 5/5

    By Feesh
    Great app to convert pictures!
  • Latest version keeps crashing. 2/5

    By Gribbly Snard
    When this app works it works very well I like the results it gets. But lately I can’t even get it to work somebody needs to fix this. I keep my software up-to-date all the time.
  • Newbie 5/5

    By Lincolnpines
    I'm just learning and pleased I can copy my 40 year old photo albums for my children
  • Like it so far 4/5

    By ***Wonder Woman***
    So far so good. It's easy to use. Using it to scan my children's artwork as keepsakes. Saves right to my photos to do what I wish with them.
  • Awful 1/5

    By mintshrm
    I tried three times to scan a simple passport photo. Each result was horribly skewed and unusable. How is this from google?
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Annicy
    This is awesome even for someone who's not very good with electronics!
  • Love it! 5/5

    By KateVanyaKarouna
    This is the app to capture your precious memories!
  • Bad 1/5

    By Crew4life
    When saving the photos it thought my table was part of the picture. Also zoom in even just a little bit and you see all the photos. 1/100 stars.
  • Great app 5/5

    By ChessKingBobby
    Preparing for a funeral. This is a huge time saver
  • Flawless! 5/5

    By Zachary2647281
    This app is AMAZING! and flawless. I love it so much and I am so happy I found this app. I feel relieved to have digital copies of all my physical photos so I no longer have to worry about them getting lost or ruined. Highly recommend this app and the google photos app that it suggests to accompany it. They are both must haves.
  • Easy and Great Quality 5/5

    This is so simple to use. My hands aren't very steady but the digitized images still come out great. We have boxes of old family photos. Getting them all digitized on a scanner takes too long and having them professionally converted is too expensive. You can use this app anywhere so if your going through some one else's photos you can easily get copies for yourself.
  • Such a great tool! 4/5

    By Mearl443
    Awesome way to quickly scan photos that can be preserved for a lifetime!!
  • Good for portable, casual use. 3/5

    By palealien
    As we move even further away from the desktop environment, the need for apps like this is obvious. I’ve tried at least 4 other scanner apps and was always less than impressed. Google’s PhotoScan looked totally different, and I had to check it out. In fact I ran a head to head with my reliable HP flatbed, it’s scanned about 1/4 of my thousands of photos without a complaint as I try to archive it all. Short results: Google produced results that were comparable to the flatbed, but in my test, which involved five photos with a range of quality and contrast, it took about 45 seconds longer, and was far more labor intensive, if you want to call it that. It’s innovative in that is accommodates all the variables of a photo and the background by sampling 4 points of the target, but that seems to be the major unique feature. Sounds good in theory. For a large scale project, it is easily second to a dedicated scanner, especially the latest generation of auto feed machines that make it even simpler than my trial. But for on the fly scans of photos in the field, in a frame, or anywhere the traditional method would be impractical it would be hard to beat. My biggest hope turned out to be a disappointment, at least so far, this being album covers, posters and larger works of art. I thought the 4 corner sampling as used for photos would allow for a relatively simple way to painlessly collect artwork, but I found it to be little better than my usual method of just shooting and cropping with a DSC. There I s a crude and difficult to use feature to adjust the borders, but if I do decide to make this work, it’ll take some practice. I also noticed that here, and with photos too, it will occasionally rotate the image for reasons as yet undetermined. It’s a bit early to rave about how much better this is than the dozens of other similar products out there, so over a wide variety of photos may yet reveal this to me. But, the price is right!
  • Love it 5/5

    By RunningSwimDad
    I love this ap. It's so easy to use and the pictures come out fabulous. I'm Enjoying using it.
  • Incridible app 3/5

    By Mustafa Akram Altalib
    One of the gratest app for scanning photographic photos,papers and pic.... Get it now!!
  • Terrible Quality 1/5

    By Ted Wh
    The official video promo stated it gives “a high-res scan, not just a photo of a photo”. I tested this app extensively and EVERY time the result was LOWER quality (less sharp detail) than simply using the iPhone camera to snap a photo of the photo. Every time. Yes it removes glare, but with the final result being so blurry, the trade off is not enough. Two thumbs way down for this app!!
  • Love this! 5/5

    By jenny82005
    So easy to use and it allows to scan all of your old photos and store them digitally with no fuss or headache.
  • So awesome! 4/5

    By Yosefa W-I
    This is the coolest app ever. My harddrive crashed and I lost all of my pictures. I had some pictures printed and thanks to this app I can digitize them and save them on my laptop (and other sources since technology can't be trusted). Most pictures turned out great. I did have a couple of pictures that weren't great because of finger prints. I'll have to try those again. Overall, I love this app.
  • Works great 5/5

    By Drugsddy
    The quality of the scans is great and it is super simple to use
  • Too bright 4/5

    By Jennemanuel
    It’s pretty easy to use but I cannot figure out how to get the photos to be less bright. In some cases, just taking a photo of the picture looked more realistic. Still had some glare.
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By Bullettoof
    Going through all my dads old photos - don't know how I'd do it without this app
  • Awesome! 4/5

    By Truveiw
    This app is amazing. Have any old photos that you want on your phone? This app will help you get them in just 1 minute! And makes sure there is no glare, yes once every now and then there is a glare and you have to do it again but it's an amazing app!
  • Fantastic App 5/5

    By ccems241
    This app is a life saver backing up old photos. Want Google to make this available for iPad!
  • Good, but... 2/5

    By Flormaría
    If you need to scan a few pictures it’s pretty good, but if there is an album or too many, it doesn’t work so well after a while. I was really excited at the beginning, but after a month it doesn’t work so well, the application crashes and it takes to long to scan the picture.
  • Awesome app! 5/5

    By Makalalah
    I don’t even do app reviews but I had to do a review on this app because it works miracles. I hate taking pictures of pictures because it has so many glares and doesn’t look original but this app is incredible! Most definitely one of my new favorite apps ❤️
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Mary C LVNV
    This app is so easy to use, I love it! The pictures turn out great, no complicated setup! I recommend highly!
  • Excellent scanning app! 5/5

    By Reignee
    Great results. Highly recommend.
  • Great for kid's art! 5/5

    By Name60582717858371716378-71737-
    I love this app. I use it all the time to take pictures of my kid's artwork. It is also a great app for taking pictures of printed out photos that your relatives insist on giving you.
  • awesome. 5/5

    By Downstreamnow.
    I just scanned in a bunch of old photos. It was super fun. The technology took care of the framing so I could enjoy the nostalgia of the photos.
  • Crashy App 1/5

    By amengu
    This is the worst app, I have ever downloaded. I can’t even take a single picture without crashing app. It is not worth it.
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Jellebabii
    In this new age of tech. This really helps me in the office when I need to get things done quickly including scanning.
  • Saved me hours 5/5

    By SadieGatton
    So happy I discovered this app it has literally saved me hours on a project for my mom's 70th birthday video. Love love. If this technically challenged girl can use it anyone can.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Designsbybriana
    This app is wonderful. I love how it scans in four photos and pieces it together to remove glare. The photos look great every time. I could not live without this app. One of the best apps for transferring printed photos to digital.
  • Fast scans 5/5

    By S.J.R.D.H.
    So far this is a great app. I have many photos to scan and it has been quick and easy with clear quality images.

  • Love this App! 5/5

    By ajpeepers04
    It made scanning old photos for scrapbooks so much easier than a scanner. The pictures come out better than the originals.
