The app opens to the camera and prompts users to position a photo within the frame.


Four dots should appear over the photo if done correctly.


Google has also made space for these memories in Google Photos, which is accessed using the search ‘scan’.


Before social media and smartphones, people carried around a camera to capture memories, which then had to be developed into prints.


But with the advancement of technology, these photos have been stuffed away in boxes collecting dust.


Now, Google has designed a new system that doesn’t require you to mail away the original copy, buy a scanner or attempt to take a picture of the print with your smartphone to add them to an online album.


‘PhotoScan gets you great looking digital copies in seconds - it detects edges, straightens the image, rotates it to the correct orientation, and removes glare,’ Jingyu Cui, Google software engineer, shared in a blog post.


‘Scanned photos can be saved in one tap to Google Photos to be organized, searchable, shared, and safely backed up at high quality—for free.’


The app opens to the camera and prompts users to position a photo within the frame.


Four dots should appear over the photo if done correctly.



To scan the print, move your phone over each of the dots and hold it until the circle appears to be filled in.


Not only is this much cheaper than a scanner, but as soon as you’ve uploaded one photo you can move right on to the next.


And the app will automatically crop, rotate and color correct.

This app is available for both iOS and Android users.


Photoscan is part of a larger update to Google Photos that shares new editing tools.


Users have access to an ‘auto-enhance’ feature that Google says can touch up photos with just a tap.
