So pleased, all my old photos quickly digitised
This is a brilliant app, and well worth subscribing to the annual subscription if you have loads of old photos that you want to digitalise and enhance. Easy to use as well.
What an app absolutely fantastic would highly recommend
Quality app allowed me to digitise some 7000 photos during lockdown.
This app is absolutely wonderful and I have never seen anything like it. I have spent the past hour scanning many of my old school photos from 60 years ago and the results are amazing. Old black & white family photos from another age turned into colour, my mum & dads courting photos taken before I was born turned into colour.
This is truly an amazing app and well worth the money paid.
Revitalise your old photo
Have uploaded photos to Photomyne but can’t do anything useful without signing up to their subscription. Rubbish!
When the app takes the photo it looks good then it automatically ‘enhances’ the photo and it looks horrible.
Fantastic, photo's are so precious. I wouldn't be without this ever.
Basic app ok, but colourisation doesn’t work.
You cant do anything unless you upgrade and pay monthly biggest pile of rubbish ever i just took a photo of old photo instead its free and no app cluttering up my storage.
We have kept scrap books instead of photo albums for more than 40 years and photomyne has enabled me to capture and store securely all the images
Cannot believe how good this is. Love it
Easy to use, has some very useful cleaning up and special effects. Would highly recommend.
Really easy to use, create albums, use different filters - only downside is doesn’t have facility to remove blemishes on damaged photos
Otherwise a fab and fun app
I have found it so easy to use and it is so wonderful to be able to colourise some of the old black and white photographs of my parents taken in the 1950’s. It has really brought their shared moments back to life. I used the free trial, but then subscribed. Well worth the money if you want to digitalise old family photographs for posterity.
Very easy to use. Great that I can also use it in my PC. Storing loads of family pics in albums.
A very useful and easy to use app. It would be great if you could use the albums you create to order printed albums displaying same.
I am really pleased with this app. Does exactly what it says.
I love this app!
Makes scanning photos so easy
Interesting that many 1 & 2 star genuine reviews - & then very dubious glowing 5 stars. Nothing in between!
Just spent DAYS scanning & labelling a presentation for the funeral of a close friend - & only now you let me know it’s limited to 100 slides. Very fiddly to reorder & crop too. Now received a message to say scans will disappear if I don’t keep paying. Worse & worse!
Makes the originals look better in a lot of cases and now anybody in the family can see their historical family so easily, thanks
I have got to get used to this app first, but so far it’s been alright.
I already have a photo enhancing app which is pretty good, and free, but I’m always open to suggestion so gave this one a try. Hmm, more by luck than judgement I managed to enhance an image, the process seemed convoluted and unnecessarily complicated and the result looked to be more akin to a cartoonified representation than a digitally enhanced rendering. Don’t get me wrong, if I hadn’t already got a really good app which I’d rate as better then I’d probably have been more impressed than I was. Apart from all that, the constant drop downs from the get go trying to get you to sign up to the ‘ better’ package were annoying and difficult to ignore. Verdict: Goodish but not better, and for that reason …. ‘Deleted’ !
It works well, especially if you can use or make a little stand and a background white border. That way it knows where the photo edges are, and you can angle the photo away from light reflections. Glossy images are sometimes a challenge, but after a while you work out how to manage that.
Excellent app and so easy to use
I realise this app says that there are “in app purchases” however it Wont allow access to any photos Ive already scanned in and keeps putting a box up to get me to upgrade.one would think that by downloading the app you would have use of basic functions such as uploading and viewing your pictures( being able to access them)???
Then any additional functions they could charge for however you can’t even do the basics so it’s a total waste of time and a Very poor system . A waste of all the time I’ve taken to upload my pics on it. Would definitely not recommend this unless you plan on upgrading from the start. It’s very misleading. They may as well just sell the app instead of luring people In And then disappointing them!
This app does what it says it will .. not cheap but worth it
Very easy to download photos and adjust size and look of photos.
Very easy to use and great way of cataloging old photos
This is the greatest app I have ever seen, I bought it for 5 yrs because I have old photos that have faded and with this app they can be back to normal in 3-5 seconds!
Superb, easy-to - use app. Quick and time-saving.
Great App! Really brings the pictures back to life.
A very useful tool to secure and improve the quality of valuable photos not just of family but historically important memories
Love this great app for sharing and editing pics
Really impressed with the quality of this app.
Would definitely recommend
The photos are great but sharing them is a battle.
I’m favourably impressed by & pleased with the Photomyne app. Highly recommend. Andrea Bici
This is a fantastic app. I’m using it for so many things. Really useful, fast, accessible.
Really happy with the colouriser effects.
spent a while scanning a ton of photos. finished up only to find out you have to pay £6.99 just to save the images to your phone. absolutely silly concept, what is the point of being able to scan them but not even save them? what am i supposed to do with these now? let them sit in the app and do nothing? should just be a paid app directly from itunes instead of advertised as ‘free’ and then demanding a subscription so you can use it’s main services. developers are clearly extremely money hungry and have serious attitude in some of their review responses. disappointing.
Had for 1 year and now I can’t look at any photos I scanned previously and paid for without signing up for another year at £40+
Please cancel my subscription I expected this app to improve photos it does not
If you are looking to use the images anywhere else other than this app for free. This is not the app for you. It slaps a big watermark across the pictures so you can’t screenshot it. Paid or nothing 🙃
I have found this app so useful. It offers me everything I need to make a digital record of my families history. The function to be able to scan the back of photos is really good for not only recording details of the photo but also family members handwriting. I just love using it.
This is a very clever app and well worth the money (most I’ve ever spent on an app). The only disappointment is that the new 3D feature just doesn’t work at all. Every photo I have tried it on has come up with an error ‘something has gone wrong, please try again later’. Is this a glitch and is being fixed?
A very useful app for those of us who grew up with old paper based photos and have older relatives who have even older photos! The propensity of mobile smartphones now especially amazing quality ones like the latest Apple iPhones (version 13 released just last week) really makes it easier to copy and record older photos including the handwritten notes on them. Colourising black and white photos is also a useful feature and does it all through some sort of AI processing which is, yes, not perfect but is still pretty good. I haven’t tried the text recognition feature yet either but it apparently also does handwritten text! We shall see… well worth trying though.
Easy to start the family archives and assembly from boxes of old photos. Ability to digitise 4 at once is a time saver. Well worth the long term subscription. Results and especially colourising excellent. Highly recommended and it seems you get what you pay for as always.
Love this app, but the menu icon on the left and the profile icon on the right are useless on iOS, you cannot use them because they're right in the top corners and iOS already has pull-down navigation installed for the iPhone's own function so no gestures are recognised, you cannot use the back arrow to I have to exit the app and go back in again, please fix, lower the menu, back arrow and profile icons, they are as far into the top corners as they can possibly be but don't need to be.
Been only a day and still finding my away around the functions.
Works great so far love all the functionality. Love the colouring software. Love the one-of payment. God only knows who else can see what I scan but that’s not a concern for me. If you could put a price on your time this app will save you loads of it. It’s automated pic adjusting and cropping is a godsend. You’ll perfectly digitise every photo in your attic in the length of time it takes to watch a movie. I’ve just digitised all my childhood diaries in an hour.
I’ve been using this software a number of years now and it’s continuing to improve and develop throughout that time. I find it easy to use with very quick results. When using the software just make sure you use in good lighting (as you’d expect)for the best results. Would definitely recommend this software.
I was recommended this app from a work colleague. I have found some old photo of my Mimas a teenager and wanted to have them on my phone. The app takes away the graininess of the old photos and the colourise opinion is great! It doesn’t always work prefect but it’s great to see some of the black and white photo in colour. The app is easy to use. Would highly recommend
I have been using Photomyne for some years now and recently found some photos to add to my collection. Photomyne was always good but the ease of use and quality of image has improved so much. It is brilliant. Makes me feel like starting all over again with my collection. Thank you Photomyne for making digitalising photographs so easy and successful.
OK i ain’t very good with technology but this app is simple and amazing. I have at present only used it to copy some old pictures. i wish to make a movie for a “reception” and many of the pictures i required were from over 30 years ago before phones and electronic cameras. This app has made it so simple to capture the images and organise them. I still need to find out how to move them on to my i pad photo cloud but will find out . If it is as easy as the copying of the pictures then will purchase the full access as it will be worth it.
At times I’ve found I get better quality just by taking a normal photo with my phone camera and manually cropping it than I do using the app. When the app ‘fixes’ the photo, it seems to take the warmth out of them and reduces some of the quality.
I think I would rather use a proper scanning machine than this app to digitise my photos. It is also very hard to get a decent photo without reflections, I’ve tried all sort of light set ups (none of us have ideal conditions for this, I would guess).
Having said all that for quick scanning and sharing its a good app - just not good enough to rely on as the sole source of digital copies, in my opinion, and not worth the subscription fee that’s being charged. I paid for one month to give it a go and am glad I didn’t pay the cost for a whole year.
It’s such a great way to bring old photos to life. The colourise aspect can really transform an old photo into to modern day. Even when fuzzy and faded, the original is transformed into clear and sharper focus. It’s amazing.
Would rate this 5 stars if there was a feature to circle parts of the photos that need extra touch ups, for example where a sleeve is not the same colour of the suit or a part of the body has remained in black and white.
I’m not normally one for writing reviews, but I’m really impressed with this. I saw the ad online somewhere (I think on TikTok), downloaded it and thought I’d try it on my grandmothers photo of her mother who passed away when she was young on her mantelpiece (my great grandmother, that I never met). The photo has been with her in every house, and it’s in black and white. So this was the photo I wanted to try it on. I tried it, colourised the photo and it came out fantastically, really brought the photo to life. I’m now planning to print this photo as a Mother’s Day gift for her, and it will likely make her year. For a free app I thought it at least deserved a good review. My only niggle was the ‘smart crop’ thing doesn’t work that well, but that’s easily resolved by just cropping yourself, perhaps it’s because I took the scan while the picture was in an oddly shaped frame. Either way, very happy with the result so thank you for a wonderful app. 👍
To take pictures of pictures and improve them is just brilliant! I love the app and am going to try the other app of scanned pictures. I would say try out the 3 day free trial and you will be hooked! I wish there was another option to pay for the app in one go without monthly or yearly costs. But it’s been enjoyable to see pictures improve before my very eyes. Well done and thanks for making.
Faultless. My old photos were digitalised in a short time and I was also able to colourise some old black and whites too. Brings joy to be able to get them on your device instead of searching through hundreds of photos. I recommend this without reservation. Thankyou
I’d been trying to find software that could re-create approximate colours in monochrome photos (as seen sometimes on television programs) and discovered that it had actually been a web based free upload for the last few years, however that has now ceased and apparently the application has / is being made open source, for others to develop etc. I was told about Photodyne recently and I thought I should test out the “Colorization” feature.
Frankly to my eyes, it is astonishing. It put huge smiles on my face when I saw some old family pics!
It’s not perfect, probably two thirds of the conversions will need a bit of work, but having said that- at least it WOULD be possible to do that. For example, it made someone’s hair light blue, but that could be quickly fixed in photoshop as it now has colour pixels to work with.
Nothing too special with the App at all. You can easily just take a photo with your Phone camera for free and just crop the image yourself. All this App does is automatically crops it and enhances the brightness, that’s literally it. The App also begs for money within one second of launching the App so that your able to “Save your Pictures.” That defeats the whole purpose of the App right? Anyway, I wouldn’t recommend this.
EDIT: Responding to their email reply.
It usually take no less than ten seconds using my camera to crop and enhance my photos manually using my camera roll. The difference is I’m able to save them for free without having to pay to save them. :)
A truly brilliant solution to my longtime wish to scan family albums dating from 1905 to my more recent ones. Quick simple clever high quality scanning, restoration and storage. Liked it so much during the free trial period that I wanted to continue to do all my remaining albums and give the developer his financial due, so starting 6 months for £9.99. Well worthwhile. Highly recommended.
Update 2020, so impressed that took up 9 year subscription offer at an excellent price and have scanned over 4000 photos. Only thing is it’s tricky to avoid reflections of the phone and ones head on the photo but mostly possible.
Perfect for scanning old black & white pictures- very good quality that can easily be transferred from phone to computer. Colour picture quality was extremely good; try scanning in different positions to get the best available light & reduce any glare. I found a window sill with a net curtain the best. Would recommend for storing digitally, get all those old photos out of the roof!!
I don’t find it fair to advertise this app as free - because it isn’t!
Yes, you say it has in-app purchase, but that should mean you can still use the basic features and buy the extra features in the app, not that you only get 7 days for free and then you must subscribe if you want to use the app at all.
I deleted it as soon as I noticed this.
To reply to the comment below made - no, it isn’t clearly stated (; otherwise I wouldn’t have posted it. It says you’d be able to use the basic features before upgrading, not that it is compulsory to subscribe if you want to use the app.
I have thousands of photos to scan as I’ve downsized my accommodation and no longer have room for huge photo albums. I’ve been trying to do this for years but it’s been like wading through mud with other scanning options. Now I’m whizzing through the task and reliving lovely memories at the same time.
We’ve all got photos lying around in boxes or tins that we’ve relieved from parents or relatives houses after they’ve passed away. The tins and boxes have followed us around in our life and we’ve very occasionally looked or shown glimpses of now past lives and events to our children and grand children. This App is the perfect way to make sure that those people and events are kept for future generations and that details are not forgotten.
The app is easy to use you just need some decent lighting and a steady hand or a way of holding your phone while scanning your photos either in albums or loose straight from the boxes or tins. The results are organised easily and can be shared with other family members.
I have used Photomyne to preserve and collate a large number of photos, from different branches of our extended family but mostly my own, dating from over 100 years ago to the digital age. These are a family resource and invaluable to family members who are interested in our family history. The fact that I can then edit and label them is hugely valuable.
I have finally found the tool to end my procrastination around sorting and organising my print photos. The app is very easy to use and the auto-cropping feature is a massive time saver and selling point. I also “colourised” a black and white wedding photo of my parents and it brought it to life much to our delight. Very Harry Potteresque.
Great little app with fair pricing — especially compared to other photo storage solutions. It wins over any other smartphone photo scanner app easily and offers a strong user experience.
Colourisation isn’t great and can often create different coloured arms and hands - it’s clearly a few updates away from being perfected.
What I would love to see is the ability for photos in public albums to be commented upon by family members so we can work together to identify who is in the pics — and to say how they make us feel. At the moment I have to upload all my scans to Flickr to make this happen which means I will probably close my Photomyne account down one day. Face recognition would be helpful and multi-user/public comment based annotation would make this app excellent and an ultimate winner.
This has been my TEDtalk, thanks for listening.
Just used this app to upload all my parents photo albums and it’s made it so much easier than scanning them one by one as I was going to attempt to do. So quick and the enhancements are perfect. The odd one needed redoing but that’s because they were old photos. Other than having to retake one or two it was easy and so fast ☺️
I was very impressed with the product when I trialed it! So much so, in view of the number of photos I need to scan and the time consuming transfer to lap top I purchased a years subscription! The time I have wasted today to resolve an issue has negated the
positives! Since buying the upgrade I’m continually told ‘no internet’! I contacted the help line and was given instructions, followed them and got ‘no internet’! Went on line to help desk! Closed!! The quality of the scanned photos is brilliant sadly customer service isn’t!
This an excellent programme and I have found it particularly useful when digitalising all my old album photos because you can simply copy a whole page and it will separate the photos and edit them at the same time. The improvement is sometimes really good. I find transferring the photos to word texts a bit tricky but it can be done.
This app was quick in scanning in photos which I liked. I couldn’t access some functions due to an issue but the customer service team sorted this straight away for me. The only downfall was having to go through every photo to make sure they cropped right because even if it was an obvious border, sometimes the app missed it or created numerous random photos from the one photo. Another issue I found was where it made some photos look great, in others, there was clumps of white pixels where it couldn’t enhance the photo correctly so I did have to go through and change the filter back to original. I think £8.99 is a lot of money per month when it cannot guarantee a great snap of all your photos. It just seems like there’s some teething problems with this app which if sorted, would make it great! I couldn’t carry on taking photos in 2s because of the cropping and auto enhancement. I believe you can turn that off but still the cropping is an issue when over half your photos haven’t cropped correctly. I would consider using this app again in future though just due to how quick it processes the photos and I had no issues saving over 1,300 photos.
I love this app and have scanned thousands of photos and dowloaded many but have just hit a download problem. Managed to sort the problem by re scanning a number of photos and they then did download. Wouldn’t be a solution when I am dealing with a large number. Don’t know if the pictures had corrupted somehow
Followed updates by both the app and Apple
Really love this app and it scans photos great and really brings the life back to them BUT it’s just not worth the monthly or yearly subscription. You wouldn’t use it enough each month to justify the price. I would suggest a one off app payment. There are other apps out there that do the same job, just as well, and cost A LOT less.
I’d recommend getting all the photos you want to scan ready, use the free trial and scan everything and then delete the app.
Maybe make it a paid app and let people pay the one off price as the subscription it just too much for what’s on offer.
I saw today that I was charged £8.99 for this app even though I didn’t renew the subscription, I’m especially confused by this and would like to have a subscription on the basis that this app was downloaded on the 18th and today - the 21st - I was charged, even though it’s a seven day free trial and I hate four days of said trial left.
I wasn’t sure of this until I checked the description of the app which clearly states a 7 day free trial, and while I understand the app states it may charge within 24 hours of the renewal period, I still had a few days until then, therefore I would greatly appreciate a refund as I have cancelled the subscription within the 7 days.
Wanted to give this a go, being a designer I think it may have been useful. Usually I download an app, try it out for a bit then upgrade for paid version if I use it often. Seems developers have caught on to this and now prefer to use auto renewal subscription methods for users to have full access. This I am not prepared to do. There are plenty of similar apps out there. If we subscribe to 10 apps, which is not unreasonable imagine how much we are actually paying out every month for what is essentially a phone app.
Every phone app That I personally download that requires subscription is deleted immediately. Sorry but it’s a phone not a computer.
Very easy to use although the menu system on the iPhone is not as intuitive as it could be. I have only been using it for about 24 hours and will update the review when I have road tested it a bit more. The one issue I have at the moment is that to upload photos to OneDrive I only seem to be able to do one at a time and the app does not remember the last folder - this makes transfers very slow. If it was better in this area it would get 5 stars.
Follow up, the developers are clearly precious about their product and don’t like it when people say the truth about the public experience to the app. They are afraid of loosing revenue. So instead of listening to the customers and enhancing the experience they fight back. I would now give this 0 stars If I could. Reading all the not so favourable reviews I found them quit antagonistic. Don’t deal with them if you can avoid it.
Don’t be fooled by the free price on iTunes. You download then asked to subscribe after a trial. It is only a 7 day trial then money has to be handed over. Deleted app then and there. It’s only when you read the massive blurb about what the app is about does it tell you about the price. Feel this is a little misleading so only download if your serious about paying for this app.
Never thought an app like this was possible. Not only does it scan and auto correct photos fantastically but it is easy to use. You can save the photos to your device and share easily too. The only small downside is that it only sorts albums into the order in which they were created or by date/year. You can’t manually rearrange them.
Originally got introduced to this app via Facebook. Tried the free version first, and then decided that my old photos deserved the paid version of the app.
It’s been great seeing photos again that I haven’t looked at in years! My kids have enjoyed my new digital versions too.
My aim is to continue using this app so that my wardrobe is finally free of photo albums! Then I intend to start on the ones in the loft!!!
Brilliant app, and I love how it automatically crops and saves multiple photos at a time. This must have saved me so much time!
I had been waiting for a long time to find a way to scan over 30 photo albums, each with around 200 photos. Any thought of removing individual photos from the album and scanning them was out of the question. Way too laborious. This app provided the facility to scan all photos on each page in one go, while automatically cropping each photo. I chose the option to download each album using the email option.
After years of wondering how to do this, job done!
I’m loving this app. It’s perfect and does exactly what it says on the tin. The only problem I’m having is that I’m not able to purchase the subscription through the app.
It keeps saying purchases cannot be made through the app. I’ve gone to the website and they’re not offering the six month subscription and there’s no way I’m paying over fifty pounds to scan my pictures. If someone could help as to how I can access the different subscriptions that would be fantastic.
A really useful app which makes the whole process of digitalising and sharing old photos a complete doddle. Really excellent to be able to add notes, dates etc. Very useful that I can scan a whole page and the app will then divide it up into individual photos. The option to edit the scans by cropping etc is a great tool. My family are enjoying accessing the family website to see what has been scanned so far. Much easier to share photos through the website than emailing, although that’s an option along with various social media platforms. I’m not clear what happens if we stop paying for this service, so we’re making sure the photos are backed up elsewhere, too.
I downloaded this app the day it arrived on iOS. Then it was updated and started to charge subscription fees after I had paid the £4:99 to buy it. All the other apps I have bought before they swapped to the yearly costs a fortune subscription ( which is more profitable for them much more expensive and with fewer features for us )all the other apps bought at pro level give you a free and permanent yearly subscription for £0:00 because when u buy a pro app that includes everything we enter a lifelong contract because we buy a pro version which included everything forever. I was told to talk to Support by this company and they refused to do that which is actually a scam because when I previously paid full price the App Store advert for photo mine said unlimited scanning of old photos and photos could be made to look bright shiny and new again. However without warning they decided to change and charge everyone for everything even if you bought everything. Why on earth don’t photomyne support old customers ? If we had not bought your app your business would not exist anymore. Yet they expect us to pay every year or every month for a service we already bought for life. This is fraudulent and a scam. See LoopyLou review as well. I have a huge following on Instagram Facebook and Twitter and oggl and Flickr so does Lou yet they dump on old users. Not a reputable company at all. And they now change the apps name ? Why ? Why disrespect your oldest users?
This is a fantastic app and the quality of photos are fantastic!! I’ve been adding loads of the old family photos! I would however, like to add tags on people when it’s a large picture with many people. So when you touch the photo the names appear by the person rather than just at the bottom of the page. Also, i would like to move photos around from one folder to another!
This App is an absolute gem! Have literally thousands of my parents’ photos to scan quickly and it’s just amazing. So easy to use and whilst I’m rushing through them so the quality on some may not be quite as good it’s a super way to ensure you preserve photos for future generations. I’ve found it particularly useful when photos are in those 1980s/1990s self stick plastic coated albums where with care you can get a reasonable copy without removing the photos. Pure genius!
I’ve now used this for a few days, and really like it. I am working through our photos both digital and physical. I’m choosing just the best photos from each year and compiling a safe on-line archive Incase anything happens to our photos. A friend of mine had a house fire and lost all theirs - this was the most traumatic part of the whole experience because everything else could be replaced.
Early days using this App but I do like it and the concept. You can't rush the process of photographing photos and need a steady hand but I have found by taking my time I get better, clearer & sharper results than with just using my phone camera. The added benefit of having a family website to share your photo albums is a wonderful bonus. The price I think is very reasonable. Thank you Photomyne! I really love it !
This app has been a godsend for me.
We literally have hundreds of photos in dusty albums, however after 2 days I’ve managed to scan over 500 photos! So quick & easy and I love how the photos are automatically enhanced once scanned.
The app also lets you create a website so you can share the albums with friends & family securely.
Just LOVE this app!
