Google launches new PhotoScan App to Scan and Digitize Memories

Technology giant Google on Wednesday launched "PhotoScan" app that scans and digitizes photos directly from the phone. "PhotoScan" is available for both Android and iOS devices from Wednesday.

Google described "PhotoScan" as a free-to-download app that gets 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, the company said in a statement.

"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," the statement read.

Further, Google is rolling out new photo editing tools like improved auto enhance. Simply open a photo and then tap the pencil icon to start editing.

For auto enhance, select Auto and see instant enhancements a pro editor might make.

The 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.

The advanced editing controls for light and color allows a user to fine tune photos, including highlights, shadows and warmth.
