What's so special about Photomyne

Sure, you can use your phone's camera to scan and crop photos. But if you have lots of old analog photos you're looking to digitize, you'll quickly find that using your phone for this purpose is an energy and time-consuming ordeal.

Photo Scanner by Photomyne offers the fastest and easiest way to digitize paper photos

Here's what the app can do for you, which your phone alone CAN'T:

1. Scan ENTIRE photo albums in minutes:

Photo Scanner by Photomyne (free and paid versions) is the only photo scanning app that makes it possible to scan multiple photos in a single shot. Scan entire album pages without having to take out photos from the album page or remove the sleeve protectors. Just point and shoot! You can also scan any batch of up to 4 photos at a time (perfect for scattered paper photos on a table).

2. Auto-crop and correct scanned photos:

As you go through the scanning process, the app will auto-detect, crop and color-enhance the scanned photos for you. As soon as you're done scanning, the app will save these into an album.

Photo Scanner by Photomyne was built to make the scanning process as seamless as possible thanks to its patented AI-based scanning algorithm, and to save you time and money without compromising on the quality of photos.

Remember that even after the album is saved, you can then always re-visit the original scans and correct the cropping to suit your taste.

3. Easily handle scans of tilted or color-faded photos:

No need to stress about keeping photos or albums neatly arranged on a table when you scan with Photomyne; the app's scanning feature is smart enough to straighten any tilted photos, and will also auto-correct any faded colors in the scanning process.

4. Choose how to sort your albums:

Once you're done with creating an album you can manually add the year (or date range) in which the original photos of that album were taken.

Have your albums ordered chronologically by assigning them dates or years, or even a range of dates

Now that your albums have dates assigned to them, you can sort them by album date.

Photomyne subscribers get the extra benefit of choosing between three sorting options. The default option is still by Album date, however subscribers can also choose to sort albums by album creation date (Album created) and Album title.

Photomyne subscribers will have these options available for album sorting. Photomyne subscribers will have these options available for album sorting.

Photomyne is the only app that centralizes the scanning and design effects in a single hub for all your scanned memories. This extends the benefit of the app from a mere scanning utility app to a holistic service for reviving and celebrating your precious old memories.

Some of these additional photo effects (which usually come in the form of separate apps elsewhere) include video slideshows, photo collages, photo website. and B&W photo colorization.

5 Back up all your old photos:

Photomyne account subscribers also enjoy unlimited photo backup on the Photomyne cloud. Why is this important? Although there are cloud backup services available such as iCloud, Dropbox and Google Photos, these won't be able to back up your photos with the details you added to them on Photomyne (description, location, entered names, etc.).

Furthermore, Photomyne's cloud backup not only saves your cropped photos, but also the original scan shots you took.

Joining Photomyne means all your photos are backed up and makes it possible to access them on photomyne.com by logging in with your username and password.

Photomyne will save you that precious time in a fun app that's easy to use. But that's not all. Photomyne also invites you to enjoy an especially cool feature: Tap into the world's first visual history feed - Photomyne's Discover.
