Google Photos provides free, unlimited photo storage (and full-size, high-resolution unlimited photo storage if you have a Pixel phone). Google applies its machine learning algorithms to remove any glare from the photo. Alphabet Inc.'s Google is launching a Photo Scan app so you can capture them on your smartphone.
This simple method could help safeguard memories that would otherwise be left to deteriorate in boxes over time.

These enhancements to the photo editor are rolling out to mobile now, with Photo Scan available later today on iOS. You either need to use a big, slow scanner or get them professionally scanned, which costs money. While demoing the app, PhotoScan product manager Julia Winn told BuzzFeed News that the app arranged all of the pictures she scanned of her father, from when he was a baby in a bathtub to his wedding, in the same folder. PhotoScan, which is being made available today on iOS and Android, lets you quickly scan a large number of photos using a novel, nearly game-like interface. The app opens to the camera and instructs you to position a photo within the frame. Google estimates there are trillions of print photos out there in the world, and it wants to bring them online. Overlaid on top of the view of the print you're about to snap a photo of are four white dots. There are new filters for those who like automation and more granular controls for those who prefer manual editing. The app turns your old, printed photos into digital ones.
Don't just take a picture of a picture. You'll also be able to find the new tools in the Google Photos web interface once the rollout is complete. You can get PhotoScan now in the App Store and Google Play. There will also be holiday-themed, pet-themed, and nature-themed videos added in the coming months.
And lastly, Google's made it easier to share photos from everyone's devices with Google Photos.
