Google recently launched PhotoScan app same as an image scanner. This PhotoScan program uses the camera of your phone to capture images to make digital copies. It is a quick and easy way to save old photos without having to spend money on new equipment.


The PhotoScan app uses new technology to improve the capturing process. This makes it possible to take a picture of a photo with a camera phone.

After opening the app, the user first position the desired photo within the camera’s frame. When this is done, four small circles appear in different places over the photo. The user then moves the phone over each of the circles which change the color after the process is fully complete.

And that’s all! The app finds the edges of the photo, straightens the image and puts it in the right position while removing glare. It also adjusts picture brightness, auto enhance, unique new looks, clear darkness, warmness, saturation & makes a new look.


From this point, the pictures can easily be saved to the Google Photos app or somewhere else according to your wish. If you save your picture in Google Photos, images are organized by face or place and can easily be searched.
