Although most youngsters might not believe us, there was a time not so long ago when everything was carried out analogically: the Internet was only available at military, educational or research centers, mobile phones only appeared in movies and there was no such thing as digital photo cameras. Yes, my young friends, photos were taken with analog cameras and were later printed on paper. Except for Kodak's instant pictures, you had to take your films to be developed to a photography store and in the best of cases, you had to wait for at least an hour.
Google's application to scan photos
They might have only just found out searching in their own search engine, but the guys at Google have finally realized what analog pics were all about and that's why they have developed PhotoScan. Once you've downloaded the APK of this application you'll be able to scan and save on your Android smartphone or tablet's memory in digital format: you can share them with your contacts via WhatsApp or even enhance them and correct all their flaws with the built-in editor.
The app your printed photos deserve.
It comes along with an extremely fast photo scanner that allows you to capture images with the highest quality, correcting imperfections while you're at it, so you don't have to spend too much time editing them. Furthermore, its built-in editor will allow you to carry out actions such as the following:
- Remove glares from the scanning process.
- Automatic detection of edges to trim them.
- Perspective correction for rectangular images.
- Smart rotation to keep your photos up-right.
Synchronization with Google Photos
One of the pros of this analog photo scanner can found in how it complements perfectly with Google's online photo album service. You can store them and organize them to find them quickly as well as keeping them stored in a safe place. Furthermore, you can use its editing functions, such as filters and other options, and create a gallery suitable for your memories.
Look on the bright side, at least you won't find any stupid selfies; back then developing photos was expensive and we didn't waste our time on nonsense.
