While the SlideScan app is the same for everyone, users’ scanning experiences might be different from person to person. A number of factors might play into how your photos will look once you’ve scanned them, such as the lighting, condition of the photos, or album type.

For additional help when scanning, we recommend these accessories to enhance the quality of your photos and remove unwanted outside elements.

Light pad

Why we recommend it: It makes scanning easier, so you don’t need to hold your slides up to a backlight source with one hand and scan with the other. Instead, you can lay your slides right on the light pad and concentrate simply on better scans.

Macro Lens

Why we recommend it: The Macro Lens significantly increases the quality of your phone’s camera for scanning. It easily clips onto your phone and - when paired with Macro Lens Mode in the app - takes HD scans.

Phone Mount

Why we recommend it: The mount frees up your hands from holding your device above your slides. Once your phone is secured to the mount, all you have to do is capture the image. Made easier with the Voice Control feature - removing shaky hands and blurry scans from your collection.
