Google launches PhotoScan app


Scan and digitize your memories directly from your phone

Rolling out three new editing tools in Google Photos to make your pictures look even better

MUMBAI, (GPN): We all have those old albums and boxes of photos that are some of our most treasured memories. Such as photos of grandma when she was young, or of your childhood pet, and even that hairstyle you wish you could forget. But we just keep thinking about scanning the photos to preserve these moments, but never really get around to it. Well, here is an easy option.

“Google PhotoScan, a brand new, standalone app from Google Photos that easily scans just about any photo, from anywhere.

PhotoScan is a free to download app that gets you great looking digital copies in seconds – it detects edges, straightens the image, rotates it to the correct orientation, and removes glare. Scanned photos can be saved in one tap to Google Photos to be organized, searchable, shared, and safely backed up at high quality.

You can get Google PhotoScan for both Android and iOS devices starting today.

Further, starting today, Google is rolling out three easy ways to make your pictures look even better: a new and improved auto enhance, unique new looks, and advanced editing tools. Simply open a photo and then tap the pencil icon to start editing.

  • First, for auto enhance, just select Auto, and see instant enhancements a pro editor might make – like balancing exposure and saturation to bring out the details.
  • Second, our 12 new looks take style to the next level. These unique looks make edits based on the individual photo and its brightness, darkness, warmth, or saturation, before applying the style.All looks use machine intelligence to complement the content of your photo, and choosing one is just a matter of taste.
  • Third, our advanced editing controls for Light and Color allow you to fine tune your photos, including highlights, shadows, and warmth. Deep Blue is particularly good for images of sea and sky where the color blue is the focal point.

The Google Photos app with the new photo editor will begin rolling out today across Android, iOS and the web.ends
