Granting the app access on your iPhone or iPad

When using Photomyne’s photo scanner app for the first time, it will request access to your iPhone’s camera (to use it for scanning) and to your photo library (to enable saving photos to your camera roll). If you denied this request at first but now want to allow it, there is no problem to do so. Please do the following:

  1. Open the iPhone’s Settings screen > Scroll down the app list and choose Photomyne.
  2. Slide the “Camera” toggle from white to green to allow access to camera.
  3. Slide the “Photos” toggle from white to green to allow access to your photo library.
Left: Choose Photomyne in your iPhone setting screen. Right: Slide the toggle from white to green to turn it ON. Left: Choose Photomyne in your iPhone setting screen. Right: Slide the toggle from white to green to turn it ON.

Granting the app access on your Android phone

Photomyne’s photo scanner app on Android requires two permissions in order to perform properly: Storage and Camera permissions.

Storage permission: When using Photomyne’s photo scanner app for the first time, it will request permission to access your Android device’s storage. This is so that photos you scan with the app will be saved on your device (within the app), and so that the next time you use the app you’ll see all the photos you’ve scanned with it until that point.

Camera permission: Once you tap the Scan tab of the app for the first time, the app will then ask you for permission to access your phone’s camera. The app won’t be able to scan any photos unless you grant it access (therefore we strongly recommend that you select Allow).
