...is one of their lesser-known projects.
It uses an Educator's, and/or Learners smartphone’s camera to scan and digitise photos by taking a series of images to eliminate glare and then combining them.
Photoscan is a clever app that removes glare well and is pretty quick to use.
NOTE: it can wash out some images—especially skin tones—a bit too much.
It's probably designed for use with older, faded images, rather than with brand new prints.
Ideal to scan a handful of photos for coursework, projects etc.
