Photo Scanning


If you haven’t scanned your box of photos, slides or negatives, you’re in good company. Traditional scanning is slow, complicated, and hasn’t evolved much in 20 years. When you’re done, you still have to organize them or you won’t find a thing.That's no fun, right?

QromaScan* is the world’s smartest photo scanner that captures and organizes your photos in one step with the two things you probably use most everyday; your iPhone and your voice.

Put Your Story Inside any Photo Forever

Tagging the natural way

Have you found yourself looking at a photo and wondered what was going on? With prints, we’d often just flip them over and find that the story and the photo were inseparable. Yet, with our digital images where exactly is the 'back of the photo’?

Photo metadata is the perfect digital replacement for the back of our photos, and then some. It can store descriptions, dates, places & the people that are in our photos in a standard way that nearly every computer, web site or mobile device can understand. The problem is that for most people, photo metadata is either too hard to use or too tedious to apply, leaving digital photos with less of our story than our old prints.

QromaScan 3 is the world’s first natural language tagging application for your photos. Use your voice to describe your photos your own way, and QromaScan transcribes your description and automatically finds things like the date the photo was taken, the location and the people that are in them. With the new Relationship Manager, use natural language words like ‘mom, ‘dad’ and ‘grandparents’ in your description and QromaScan adds their full names as searchable keywords.

With your photos tagged, you can find any photo with just a few keystrokes, or pass along a great backstory for future generations.

QromaScan LightBox

Bookish & Brilliant

Designed to be folded away like a book when not in use, the QromaScan Lightbox is the perfect environment for scanning photos with your iPhone. Illuminated by 12 cool white LED lights, the LightBox makes it easy to get high quality scans every time, so you can say goodbye to blurry photos with a glare right in the middle of it. The LightBox keeps your iPhone in perfect alignment with your photos, eliminating that distortion you often get when trying to take a picture of a picture by hand.

QromaScan SlideBox

Scan 35 millimeter Slides & Negatives in a Snap

Scanning slides and negatives has traditionally been even more difficult and time consuming than traditional print photos. The QromaScan SlideBox is the newest addition to the QromaScan family and makes it dead simple to convert slides and negatives into sharable digital images. Assembled by hand in California, the SlideBox contains a light chamber powered by 3 bright white LED lights that perfectly illuminate your slides and negatives. The SlideBox places your iPhone the exact minimal focal length away to get a sharp image, while at the same time maximizing the resolution.

The SlideBox works seamlessly with the QromaScan iOS app, so you can tag your slides and negatives with industry standard photo metadata using our award winning voice recognition technology.

... or ask your own.

What is the largest size image you can scan inside the LightBox?

The LightBox supports images up to 6 x 8 inches. The QromaScan Import feature supports the scanning and cropping of larger images outside the LightBox.

What print resolution (DPI) does QromaScan support?

It is dependent on the type of iPhone you are using. For example, with an iPhone 7, a 3.5 x 5 inch images scans to 421 DPI. As a general rule, any images you scan with QromaScan should print back out nicely at up to twice their original size.

What type of iPhones does QromaScan support?

QromaScan works with iPhone 5 or iPod Touch 5 or greater. If you enabled iCloud Drive support, you can also use QromaScan on an iPad to edit metadata and view your images.

What is the QromaScan USB Adapter?

The QromaScan USB Adapter is a handy optional cable that allows you to power the LightBox with any USB port, such as a nearby computer, an iPhone charger or a rechargeable USB power bank. The cable contains a special ‘step up’ converter that transforms 5 volt USB power into 12 volts suitable for powering both the LightBox and the SlideBox. It is included with the QromaScan Complete Bundle.

What if my photos have a curl to them?

The optional QromaScan StayFlat adapter is an acrylic sheet with a custom lip that can help keep curly images perfectly flat during the scanning process. It is included with the QromaScan Complete Bundle.
