  • Incredible scanner

    By BFFJnT
    Are use this to scan some old photos. There is no glare, the color is good, and they look better than the real photos.
  • Great Job!

  • Another Google Intrusion

    By EuandSylv
    Loved this app until they started adding the Google logo to all the scanned photos you share. Totally offensive!! Find another photo app, there are plenty of other options that don’t require you to advertise for them.

    I’ve been putting off family photo archiving for a decade or more. I never knew this process could be so easy and professional looking! Thank you Google!

    Can’t properly adjust corners due to broken zoom making the app useless.

  • Brightens too much

    By rascistads
    I would be at 5 stars except it brightens some pictures way too much and washes out the subject’s in the pic. PLEASE FIX
  • Fantastic!

    PhotoScan does an amazing job removing glare from photographs and saving only only the pictures, not anything behind the picture.
