handy scanning tips

It is super easy to digitise your photographs, and all you really need is your phone! You can take a photograph, or use the Photo Scan by Google app to digitise your images.

Some things to think about when you're scanning your photos:

1. Take a photograph from directly above, and try to keep it as straight as possible.

3. Try and avoid any glare or shadows on the photograph, as they will be visible in the scan. Where possible use natural light, and don't use your flash.

2. Place the photograph on a plain background, where possible, or pin it up on a wall.

4. When sending your photograph e-mail it on - messenger apps like Facebook Messenger, Instagram and Whatsapp compress photos and reduce the image quality.
