To scan it, you move your phone over each of the four dots which appears over the image and hold it until the circle is filled in. The photo is scanned and you can immediately slide the next photo under your phone and repeat the process. Photos are automatically cropped, rotated, and color corrected. After, the user can search for “scans” inside Google Photos and they’ll all come up, being available to be shared with friends or even with other applications. “Photos are at risk. They’re at risk of being lost when you move, they’re at risk of fires, floods, and theft. And with every day that passes they fade away a bit they literally fade away,” David Lieb, who leads product development for Google Photos, explained the need to use Google PhotoScan.
