These days, cameras and technology seem to be getting more and more complex – whatever happened to the good old days of point, shoot, and print? You may have found yourself more than once cracking open an old photo album and chuckling as old memories come rushing back.

While the digital age won’t be slowing down anytime soon, you can recapture those images of yesteryear to share with old pals and family in seconds thanks to the magic of Google! Simply position a photo in front of your phone’s camera, and tap the round shutter button at the bottom of the screen. When prompted, position your device over each of the four corner circles until there are none remaining and the image is captured automatically. Easy!

▲ Easy to follow on-screen instructions help you to position and scan your photo correctly.

▲ Voila! If you want to make some small edits, tap ‘rotate’ or ‘adjust corners’, or tap ‘delete’ to start the process again.

No need to worry if your hand is shaky or glare is obstructing part of the image. Thanks to some nifty technology, the app automatically erases glare, corrects the perspective, rotates the image, and crops it for you! If for some reason the cropping is a little too much or too little, you can change it manually by tapping ‘adjust corners’ once the image has been captured as well.

To make sharing and saving those precious memories even easier, you can choose to automatically have your scans saved to Google Photos - the free and secure image hosting service with unlimited storage. Once you capture an image, just follow the prompts to sign up for or log into your Google account and let the app do the rest! Get ready to take a trip down memory lane and secure your favorite moments of the past for generations to come.
