Google announced yesterday the launch of a new application capable of transforming old printed photographs into digital photographs without any cost.
The application in question is called PhotoScan, and is now available on both iOS and Android. PhotoScan detects the edges of the picture and corrects the image by rotating toward its perfect orientation.
As claim from Google, users simply need to open the application and be guided to capture the printed photograph pointing to four white dots that act as guide.
The new Google app is available for free on the App Store
Scanned photographs, of course, can be stored in the internal storage of iPhone or iPad; That is, in the albums in the native Photos app, and in the Google Photos app to organize, share and search for them.
Good to save images in Google Pictures is that the application does not have a storage limit, so it's ideal for scanning all the old photographs of the typical family albums and update our time, why not, with a small touch Of photographic editing.
Jingyu Cui, software engineer at Google Photos, mentioned the following:
"WE ALL HAVE THOSE OLD ALBUMS AND BOXES OF PHOTOGRAPHS, BUT WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DIGITIZE THEM BECAUSE IT'S TOO DIFFICULT TO DO WELL."
To which he added that nobody wants to get rid of the printed photos, and buying a scanner is too expensive, in addition, if you try to take a photo of a photo ... the results are horrible. And reason does not lack.
Download PhotoScanAdditionally you can also download the version of Android and get more info on their website .
