“Google PhotoScan”, a new standalone app from Google Photos that can scan just about any photo, from anywhere.
PhotoScan is a free to download app that gets users digital copies of pictures - it detects edges, straightens the image, rotates it to the correct orientation, and removes glare. Scanned photos can be saved to Google Photos to be organized, searchable, shared, and safely backed up at high quality. Users can get Google PhotoScan for both Android and iOS devices starting today.
Further, Google is rolling out three ways to make pictures look even better: a new and improved auto enhance, unique new looks, and advanced editing tools. Users can open a photo and then tap the pencil icon to start editing.
First, for auto enhance, just select Auto for instant enhancements - like balancing exposure and saturation to bring out the details.
Second, the 12 new 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 the photo, and choosing one is just a matter of taste.
Third, the advanced editing controls for Light and Colour allows user to fine tune their photos, including highlights, shadows, and warmth. Deep Blue is particularly good for images of sea and sky where the colour blue is the focal point....
