We know it’s not easy to hold a photograph (or slide or negative strip) and capture the image at the same time, so we’ve given you a voice control option. Voice control allows you to scan photos with a simple verbal command and without pressing a capture button so you can steady your device for optimal scanning quality. Take a look at how to do it yourself.

Note: voice control is currently for iOS only
