Taking Picture of a Picture Using Google PhotoScan

If you don't have digital copy of photos, you can take pictures of them using the camera on your phone to have digital copy of them. Directly using camera app on your smart phone may not produce good quality picture due to glare. You have to spend time editing to make it look like the original picture. Instead of using the camera app, you can use Google PhotoScan app to take picture of a picture.

After installing the PhotoScan app, open the app, keep the camera focus on the picture that you want to take picture of it.

Once you touch the round button to take the photo, the app will display four filled circles within the frame. You need to overlap each one of these filled circle with unfilled circle to let the app do the work and create good quality picture. After picture is taken, you can find it in the photo gallery.
