Top tips:

For good resolution: (1) Use good lighting (2) Scan 1-2 photos at a time (3) Do not zoom (4) Tap screen to focus camera

For good cropping: (1) Place photos on white paper, NOT multicolor or patterned surface (2) ½” gap between pics (3) Hold camera centered over & parallel to pics when sanning

Pic Scanner is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPod Touch running iOS 8. It is not recommended for iPhone 3GS.

iPhone 4/4s users may experience occasional crashes due to memory/processing power limitations. To resolve, close all open apps, then reboot iPhone (Hold down Power + Home buttons until Apple logo appears).
