Scan old photos painlessly
You can quickly scan photos for uploading to LivesArchived using only a smartphone and a free app from Google called PhotoScan.
- Install PhotoScan for iPhone or Android
- PhotoScan will prompt you to take 3 pictures of the photo at different angles to compensate for lighting and glare. It then combines these photos into 1 photo that can be saved to your camera.
- Open Safari or Chrome on your phone and go to LivesArchived.com
- Navigate to the person’s archive. Click Submit items and upload the photo from the camera roll. Note: If you are not the curator for the person you upload for, the photo will not be public until the curator approves the photo.
