Google Photos continues to be the best app Google put out in recent years.
And how does Google know the location a printed photo was taken by scanning it?
Play store link.
This sounds excellent. I'm not seeing it in the Play Store. Any chance you could link it? (using a Nexus 6P, hopefully I'm not already outdated...)
Edit: it turns out it's listed under a different name. I originally saw this and assumed it was just meant for photos, but it sounds like it works for text based items, too. This will be super helpful for logging purchases with a company credit card! Thanks for those who provided a link. [link]
There's an app called Photoscan by Google that can really easily scan photos using a phone. It does it pretty well too!
You can get it here
EDIT: For those who can't download it on the play store, try this.

Intro video [link]
> The core Google Photos app now has a new “auto-enhance” feature that the company says does a better job in touching up your photos with one tap. It also now has a series of filters, called “looks,” that make different adjustments depending on the content of the photo. Photos with faces might get one treatment; landscapes will get another. You can also make fine-grained adjustments to your photos using new sliders under the existing “light,” “color,” and “pop” tools.
> not convinced its not a front for google to steal all my old photos though.
Easy enough to check. [link] Go there, scroll down to Additional Information and click on "View Details" under Permissions.
You'll now see a list of everything the app can do. Now, you may not know this, but Android apps can't access the internet at all unless they specifically request it (this is different on iOS.. on iOS any app can access the internet without permission). Go check out the permissions for an app like Netflix and you'll see "full network access" listed as one of the permissions.
There are no internet permissions granted to PhotoScan. It can't use the internet at all.
Not sure how tech savvy you are, but if you have a high quality camera phone, you can use this app:
PhotoScan on the Google play store.
Takes a series of photos and stitches them together to get a detailed digital copy without any glare. It works surprisingly well.
Otherwise, if you have any family in education still, ask them to scan it for you using their school/university facilities ;)
Failing that, libraries often provide scanning services, and most larger/better funded ones should hopefully be a lot better than any home scanner.
On this subject, the Google Photoscan app here is a great tool for digitizing photographs. You basically take pics of it from slightly different positions and it stitches them together.
Yo use Google PhotoScan and make that a dope wallpaper! It reminds me of this Dark Souls picture that I use for my wallpaper.
I'd honestly consider checking out Google PhotoScan - it's by far the fastest and cheapest method, and by all accounts is pretty decent.
Whatever other method you use, you're having to pay a person's time to go through loading all those photos, and that is not going to be cheap.
/u/suradoe when you're taking a picture of printed materials, consider using Google Photoscan instead for higher quality and no glare: [link]
You can also find it for iOS.
> Multifunktionsgeräte sind inzwischen sehr weit verbreitet und können auch locker kopieren.
Ich habe nie was anderes behauptet.
> Scanner gibt es kaum noch.
Auf Geizhals werden 566 Laserdrucker und 442 Scanner gelistet. "Kaum noch" ist der Witz des Tages.
> Außerdem gibt es für wenig Geld schon Scan-Apps für das Smartphone.
Die gibt es auch für lau, aber die Qualität kommt lange nicht an die eines echten Scanners heran. Die Frage ist halt, was man will.
> Was soll denn noch so ein Flachbettscanner in der Bude verstauben?
OP will Scannen. Ein Scanner macht das am besten.
> Die Frage lautet m.E. nicht, ob Multifunktionsgerät, oder nicht. Sondern ob das Multifunktionsgerät Laser oder Tinte haben sollte und wenn Laser, ob mit Farbe. Und das muss der User selber wissen.
OP hat die Frage nach Kombigerät oder nicht offen gelassen und somit durchaus zu einer Diskussion eingeladen. Es war eindeutig Teil seiner Beratungssuche. Ich habe aber die Entscheidung bewusst ihm überlassen.
Ober Laser oder Tinte, Farbe oder keine ist sehr wohl wichtig bei einer Kaufberatung. Wenn OP das selber wüsste, würde er kaum fragen.
Schlechten Tag gehabt, oder was?
>or just photograph them on a clear background using your smartphone (be careful with the lighting).
Google has a pretty great app for that. It gets rid of the reflections by taking multiple photos from different angles and putting them together.
Also, from those who don't have access to a scanner, please use photo scan....
It'll cut down on the glare by mixing several shots together.
Quick Search in App Store brings up PhotoScan by Google Photos
iOS | Android
Just tested it: You are REALLY limited by your phone's camera resolution. Their algorithms are otherwise great.
Make a decoy check. Scan or take a good picture of it ( Good app to try [link]) and alter it with photoshop/gimp etc. Change the routing/account number. Change the amount. If you can make it non obvious, alter the college name (misspell subtly or eliminate or add a word). Leave it in the more obvious hidden place, in the original envelope.
If they steal it, and try to deposit it, then it will either not be accepted or bounce in a few days.
Put the real one inside a book. or roll it up and put inside a pen. Don't lend the pen.
If your bank has electronic deposit, then you can deal with it quickly and destroy it.
Agree that a PO box would be good.
Use the photo scan app to take pictures of flat rectangular things.
This actually isn't specific to the Pixel 2; it's just cool.
Check out Google's PhotoScan app. It does a good job of this. Better scans and quicker than taking pages out and using a flatbed scanner.
Google just released a new app called Photo Scan. Maybe you could try using it to get good copies of the photos! They're awesome! The app is super easy to use according to the ads I've seen.
Google's PhotoScan app (for your phone) is designed for turning photos into digital scans, it works surprising well. My mom used it to digitize hundreds of old photos. So just go to Shoppers / somewhere that does passport photos and scan it. Should be more than adequate for a CIC photo:
Yeah, mine goes on about how I need a filing cabinet to hold important documents like bills and such.
Bills are available online, and for other documents I have a scanner, Google Photo Scan, Office Lens, and Google Drive.
There's a Google app that is exceptionally good at scanning old pictures. My father's day gift to my father was a photo book (I used Walmart not Google's new photo book option. Same quality lower price and quicker) but I got all the old pictures of him and my mom I could find digital with just the app on my phone.
For the best result you really want to get the photo scanned. It's easy, quick and there's plenty of places that do it. As a last resort try using an app like Google's PhotoScan.
If you get them a good quality, fun photo to work on, /r/colorizationrequests will usually put a lot of effort into it.
Highly recommend using Google's "photoscan" tool when taking pictures of physical photographs with your phone. It will improve picture quality, eliminate glare, and just make an all-around better pic. Great tool: [link]
A real scan, or at least using a scanning app on your phone like [link] will probably help. It will light the whole ID well, and remove the glare.
It might look better without the glare in the photo, I suggest you take the photo with Google Photoscan: [link]
maybe consider this? [link]
The Photoscan app can scan glossy photos, and then just syncs to your Google photos if you have an account.
Use Google Photo Scanner to get a really nice digital copy of your picture. It's free, and available for both IOS and Android.
I know I'm late to this but google has a really good app I've used to make digital copies of older photos for my parents etc. It works on both google and iPhone.
In case you do not know, there is a photo scan app made by google that helps you scan things into a digital form just using your phone. It stitches multiple close up pictures and make one big, crisp and high detailed photo. I suggest it. I am using it right now to scan a stack of old family photos into the cloud for safe keeping.
App for android.
Sinon sans trépied j'ai scanné des photos argentiques avec l'appli Photoscan de Google et ça marchait pas trop mal. Tu pointes les 4 angles sur ta photo et ça compense automatiquement l'angle de prise de vue. Et évidemment après ya les filtres habituels (couleur/exposition/contraste ...).
If you took this on your phone, could you take it again but this time with Google PhotoScan and provide the scanned photo? A document scanner (like Adobe Scan) can work, but not as good as PhotoScan.
I can't find it in the play store from my device, but visiting the web page and installing it works fine.
Fully stock, no root or beta.
If the relative would be happy to take the picture again, I'd recommend using this app, very simple and will give you a high quality reflection free image :)
Google PhotoScan <strong>Android</strong>
Google Photoscan <strong>IOS</strong>
Primarily designed for removing glare from photos. I've used it for photographing documents (handy because it removes the shadow of your hand & phone hovering above it) but found the resolution was a little low for a clear document.
No OCR but does a great job scanning, including straightening and cropping and reducing glare: photoscan by Google. [link]
Hey OP. Can I recommend you a great app for scanning photos with your phone? Removes that shine you have in the top left.

Give this a shot.
I second the comment above: try scanning the picture with Google's Photoscan (iOS) or Google Photoscan (Android). If still necessary, post the result here again so the wizzards will be able to do a much better job.
>pics are hard copies
There are apps for that kind of thing.
Also on iOS
Try Google's Photo Scan app.
It does. Swipe open the menu and click on "scan photos", and it will link to (or open, if you've installed it) PhotoScan
I recommend this although I haven't tried it personally.
It is easy to convert images to pdf with onlline tools
If they're a physical print and not a negative, I'd recommend trying out PhotoScan from Google. I used it for close to 1,000 of my photos and it works great if you have non-harsh lighting.
