The final resolution of the photos you scan with Photomyne’s photo scanner app depends on two main factors:

#1 The number of photos you take in a single shot (the distance of the phone camera from photos at the time of scanning).

#2 The camera quality (megapixel specs) of the device you are using (usually newer devices offer better camera quality).

Tips for achieving optimal photo quality when using the app:

Absolute best resolution - print quality:

To achieve the absolute best resolution quality possible, take a close shot of one photo at a time, making sure the phone camera is directly above the paper photo. The resolution of the extracted photo will be approximately 8-9 Mega Pixels (best for print), depending on the mobile device you're using.

High resolution (recommended):

This resolution level is good for most people, and offers a nice combination of good resolution and time-efficient scanning. To achieve it, take a close enough shot of up to 2 photos at a time. The resolution of the extracted photo will be approximately 3-4 Mega Pixels.

High resolution High resolution

Normal resolution (reasonable):

This resolution level may not be the highest, but it allows for the fastest scanning process — scanning 3–4 photos at a time. This option is great for quick scanning and viewing the photos on your phone or computer. The resolution of each extracted photo will be approximately 2-3 Mega Pixels.
